Latest legal news from Docklands Solicitors, Kaslers Solicitors LLP.

Thursday, 7 April 2011



Where a negligent act has damaged or destroyed an item, the damages claim should be for the replacement cost of the item, even though the claimant will end up with a brand-new item rather than one that may be several years old and had several years use

The defendant will not be allowed to raise the argument that the claimant is getting something "new for old" and that therefore there should be some percentage discount

This does not apply where there is a ready market for second-hand goods e.g. cars where it is very easy to go out and buy an older model vehicle with similar mileage
