Dance v East Kent University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust & Ors [2022] EWHC B9 (Costs) (08 April 2022)

I am assessing C’s costs of a clinical negligence claim payable by the first D following C’s acceptance of a Part 36 offer on 23 July 2019. The issue addressed by this judgment is whether C can recover from the first D part of the cost of an “After the Event” (“ATE”) insurance policy premium, included in C’s bill of costs at £5,266.01. [1]

…the £5,266.01 sought for the Claimant’s ATE premium should be allowed. [97]
