Fixed Costs

The Civil Justice Council's predictable costs working party is nudging it's way towards proposed fixed or predictable costs for cases which settle without proceedings being issued. The scheme would apply to road traffic cases only.

The reported view of Patrick Allen President of The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers is that the real confusion surrounding recent costs litigation lies with success fees, insurance premiums and recoverability not base costs and that Claimants' Lawyers are left with the feeling that they are being 'rail roaded' into a Fixed Costs regime through very limited research rushed through because of an agenda to bring in Fixed Costs. Mr. Allen stated at it's Annual Conference that APIL is opposed to a Fixed Costs regime except in limited circumstances.

Stand by for further chaos affecting Conditional Fee Agreements.
