Fixed recoverable costs in lower value clinical negligence claims
The proposed scheme would apply to clinical negligence claims in England and Wales, valued between the upper small claims track limit for non-RTA personal injury claims (currently £1,000) and £25,000. They would be allocated to either a Standard Track or a Light Track, the latter being for cases deemed to be more straightforward. Certain claims are excluded including those requiring
more than two liability experts; those with genuine multiple defendants; claims involving stillbirths or neonatal deaths; and claims where limitation is an issue.
