The Civil Procedure (Amendment No.3) Rules 2013

These Rules may be cited as the Civil Procedure (Amendment No.3) Rules 2013 and come into force on 30th April 2013.

These Rules amend Part 45 of the Civil Procedure Rules 1998 (SI 1998/3132), as amended by the Civil Procedure (Amendment) Rules 2013 (SI 2013/262).

In particular, these Rules amend rule 45.18, which, in Table 6, prescribes the fixed costs which may be recovered by a legally represented claimant in respect of the Stage 1 and Stage 2 procedures under the Pre-Action Protocol for Low Value Personal Injury Claims in Road Traffic Accidents (‘the Protocol'). These Rules substitute the new sums which may be recovered as fixed costs in those cases where, under the Protocol, the claimant's Claim Notification Form is sent to the defendant's insurer on or after 30th April 2013. An earlier typographical error in the same rule has also been corrected.
