This Practice Note covers the different options for funding clinical negligence claims including legal aid, conditional fee agreements, and damages based agreements. It also discusses costs, including what can be recovered and qualified one way cost shifting.
This Practice Note deals with provisions for the payment of costs orders. It considers the differences depending on whether the court order includes a time limit for payment and provides guidance on the expression and calculation of time limits. It also considers the enforcement of a costs order. In doing so it considers when a costs order can be enforced, whether a costs order can be stayed (including where the costs order is appeal) or deferred, whether a stay of execution of a costs order can be set aside. The Practice Note also considers whether an extension of time can be obtained to comply with a costs order.
This Practice Note considers costs in the small claims track, a track that is dealt with in Part 27 of the CPR. It examines the costs provisions in CPR 27.14(2) and offers assistance on how they have been interpreted by the courts. The Practice Note also covers exceptional circumstances where a successful claimant is able to claim a contractual entitlement to costs.
