Negligence - Duty of care - Solicitor - Negligent prosecution of claim - Loss of nothing of value - Liability.
An action for damages arising from the defendant solicitor's admitted negligence in his prosecution of a claim arising out of a road traffic accident was dismissed, since on the evidence the claimant had had no more than negligible prospects of success in the original litigation, and therefore had lost nothing of any value by virtue of the defendant's negligence.
