Legal Protection Group are pleased to bring you the June edition of ATE Matters highlighting the most recent and key case judgments affecting the world of clinical negligence and litigation as a whole. In this month’s edition, failure to engage in ADR plays a pivotal role. We start though with a judge’s use of statistical evidence to prove causation being upheld on appeal. A decision regarding a ‘Calderbank’ offer made during detailed cost assessment comes under the spotlight followed by three very important judgments relating to the costs consequences of failing to engage in ADR. Finally in this edition we look at a decision over ‘standard of proof’ which will be of interest to any of you or your colleagues involved in general civil litigation.
