Following on from the decision of the Court of Appeal in University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust v Harrison  EWCA Civ 660, another division of the Court of Appeal has handed down judgment in the case of Excalibur and Keswick Groundworks Limited v McDonald  EWCA Civ 18.
This further decision of the Court of Appeal clarifies the approach that judges at first instance should take, when considering applications to strike out personal injury claims and disapply a claimant’s QOCS protection.
