When assessing damages for personal injury, where the expert's opinion was only part of the evidence in a case, especially where, as in the instant case, the defendant chose to conduct their case on the basis that the expert should not be present at trial, the judge was not bound by expert opinion, he had to assess all the evidence, including that of the claimant.
