Patterson v Ministry of Defence [2012] EWHC 2767 (QB)

Posted on Friday, October 12th, 2012

This was a case where the Claimant suffered a non-freezing cold injury and the issue was whether the non-freezing cold injury was a ‘disease’ within the meaning of Section V of CPR 45 and whether the recoverable success fee was 62.5% or 25%.

The Claimant contended that non-freezing cold injury was a ‘disease’, therefore Section V of CPR 45 should apply, which meant a success fee of 62.5%.

However, it was held that non-freezing cold injury not a disease within the meaning of CPR 45 and the recoverable success fee was 25%.
