Watt v Tucker [2005] EWCA Civ 1420 (23 November 2005)

Description

Court not bound to particular conclusion by expert evidence: In the context of an assessment of damages, a judge had not erred in reaching the conclusion that a reduction in a Claimant's working week was due to her personal injuries rather than personal choice, where evidence had been adduced from an expert supporting the Defendant's case, but the Defendant had resisted an adjournment to allow the expert to be called. It was held that, in those circumstances, in fairness, it was not open to the Defendant to suggest that the Court was bound by the expert's evidence alone to draw the conclusion that the Claimant was simply exercising a choice.
