Following Bradbury Sippel's trial of December 2021 involving a claim for injuries arising from a motor vehicle accident by Stefan Rabnett [Bradbury Sippel's Recent Trial Success] the Court has ruled on costs. The Plaintiff had sought damages in the amount of $2.4 Million. Prior to trial the Defence had offered to settle the matter for $258,000 plus costs to date. The award, after statutory deductions and including pre-judgment interest, was ultimately $252,002.99. The Court awarded the Plaintiff his costs up to the expiry of the offer, and denied his costs associated with the two-week trial in the matter.
