Boyes Turner successfully opposed a defendant’s application to withdraw their admission of liability in a road traffic accident where they had admitted liability 3 years previously.
The defendant tried to withdraw their full admission of liability, but the judge accepted Boyes Turner’s arguments that no new evidence had been obtained and that the increase in the value of the pleaded case should not be a good reason for permitting the defendant to withdraw its admission. The judge agreed that Boyes Turner’s client would have been prejudiced if the defendant was allowed to withdraw its admission and it would not have been in the interests of justice. The court allowed the defendant to run allegations of contributory negligence but refused the defendant’s application to withdraw its admission.
