Road traffic accidents fixed costs recovery appeal
15 February 2017
Case: Iqbal & Anr v. Leek & Anr
On 23 February the Court of Appeal is due to hear this appeal, which will consider whether or not solicitors may be ordered to repay costs received under the Road Traffic Accident Protocol's fixed costs regime where a claim was not pursued beyond stage 1 of the pre-2013 Pre-Action Protocol for Low Value Personal Injury Claims in Road Traffic Accidents.
Solicitors should be aware of this live case, in which the Society has made written submissions on the issues to the Court. Once delivered, the Court of Appeal judgment should provide clarity for solicitors in this position.
