Sarah Robson Barrister - Ampratwum & Ors v Esure
Ampratwum & Zbigniew Samajeden v Esure
Birkenhead CC, 5th June 2013

Sarah successfully argued here that a Claimant was not justified in leaving the Portal when a Defendant failed to make a payment for an interim payment within the requisite time.  

The entitlement to an interim payment for damages, sometimes called additional damages, only arises where a Claimant personally has paid out for that head of loss.  If an interim payment for normal damages had not been made in time then a Claimant could leave the Portal.  

Please note there is no available copy of this judgment.

This case makes the point that portal rules must be carefully studied!
