No Appeal on the Liverpool ATE Premium Test Cases

Posted by radford on May 31, 2012

District Judge Smedley’s ruling , on the above test cases,  stated it was reasonable to incur a single ATE premium and for that cover to be taken out on the client first giving instructions.

The defendant insurers and their solicitors  have now confirmed that there will be no appeal to that decision and, consequently, third party insurers have now commenced paying the backlog of premiums that have been in abeyance pending this decision.

It is now likely that future premium challenges based on the use of a single ATE premium will cease in its entirety.
