Andy Crawford success in Edinburgh Sheriff Court

Julie Brines v Aviva Insurance UK Limited

Andy Crawford was instructed by New Law for the pursuer in this case, which will be of interest to practitioners who undertake personal injury and road traffic work in the sheriff court. The claim involved a low velocity impact. The defender admitted liability but disputed causation of injuries. The pursuer was successful and sanction for Counsel was granted for the conduct of the proof. There are some interesting comments in relation to expert evidence, considered against the background of Kennedy v Cordia (Services) LLP 2016 UKSC 6.
