Change of expert allowed again, although this is not a license for expert shopping

WRIGHT v FIRSTGROUP PLC, QBD (Foskett J) 12/01/2018

 

Another case where a Claimant was granted permission to use a new expert in circumstances where their expert had changed his view following a joint meeting and to not allow a new expert would have resulted in an unfair disadvantage to the Claimant.

This was an unusual case and it should be borne in mind that the court would always deter expert shopping.
