Why can courts strike out a claim?
Courts will commonly strike out claims where solicitors have failed to issue court proceedings before the expiry of limitation periods, failed to meet court deadlines, failed to comply with court directions and failed to serve documents on time. Some Pure Legal clients have had their claims struck out as Pure Legal allegedly failed to comply with court orders or update After the Event insurers on progress of the claims.
What are adverse costs?
Courts may order Claimants to pay adverse costs when their claims are struck out. These include:
- Legal fees of their opponents
- Disbursements and expenses
- VAT and interest
