*Haynes (A child, by her mother and Litigation Friend Nicola Spratt) v Kingston Hospital NHS Trust

Practice – Personal injuries action. The claimant was an eight-year-old girl with profound disabilities. Her injuries had been caused by the defendants' admitted negligence. The parties had reached agreement as to general damage. There was, however, a very substantial dispute in relation to future accommodation. The claimant sought the sum of £1.6m by way of interim payments in respect of accomodation. The Queen's Bench Division following the law allowed the application.
