Percentage settlement

When agreement is reached or a percentage is offered where the Defence admits partial liability and will therefore only pay this percentage of the overall compensation. 

The Claimant can either accept, negotiate or reject this percentage.  If rejected a Court date needs to be set for the level of admissions to be decided by a judge. 

Percentage is down to causality, defence will argue causality the most and will often admit breech of care but say a percentage of the damage caused could not have been avoided even with best practise care.
