Is the court bound to accept uncontroverted expert evidence: Griffiths v TUI?


CategoryArticles Author Bernard Doherty Date

In Griffiths v TUI (UK) Ltd[1] (judgment 07.10.21) the Court of Appeal considered the extent to which a court can refuse to accept uncontroverted expert evidence.  Uncontroverted here means “that there is no factual evidence undermining the factual basis of the report, no competing expert evidence and no cross-examination of the expert takes place.[2]  The issue arose in a cross border personal injury claim, but is significant for all civil litigation.
