Ward v Allies & Morrison Architects

Citation: [2012] EWCA Civ 1287; [2013] PIQR Q1; [2012] All ER (D) 95 (Oct)

A judge was entitled to find that there were too many imponderables as to the appellant’s likely pattern of future earnings and that in the circumstances a lump sum award for future loss of earnings (on the basis set out in  Blamire v South Cumbria HA [1993] PIQR Q1) was appropriate rather than the conventional multiplier/multiplicand approach. The issue of whether the appellant was to be regarded as disabled was not the determining factor on whether or not the Ogden tables were to be used to calculate loss of future earnings.
