Grainger v Cooper

Damages – Measure of damages. In a personal injury case in which liability and causation were admitted but damages were in issue, the claimant applied for an interim payment in order to purchase a property to adapt for her own living arrangements. The Queen's Bench division allowed a payment under stage one of the judgment of Eeles v Cobham Hire Services Ltd [2009] All ER (D) 144 (Mar) reasoning that such a decision would not create an unlevel playing field as between the parties.
