Example text

In Hayes v Dodd (1990), the couple who were claiming damages for incorrect advice in relation to the purchase of a maisonette and workshop had to deal with the argument that they had increased their loss by not mitigating. In particular the rent in relation to the lease of the workshop was higher than it might have been if the properties had been sold separately. In the Court of Appeal this point was considered, and it was accepted that with hindsight the couple had at first 35 CHAPTER 2: THE MEASUREMENT OF DAMAGES taken the wrong course of action in trying to sell both properties together.

In the recent case of Pegler v Wang (2000),these principles were followed,when it was held that loss of profits can fall within either rule, and to exclude ‘consequential’ losses does not exclude normal losses.

The clause did not exclude normal loss of profit. We also take a further look at the mathematical adjustments that have to be made to take account of certain economic factors that may be relevant to the claim.

The court did not accept this argument, and held that it was not the fault of the claimant that he was put into a position in which he had to buy a new machine before he had intended to do so. It was not likely that a half used item of this kind could be purchased on the open market, so the only form of restitution was to award the cost of purchasing a new item. The principles of the above cases were repeated in the case of Dominian Mosaics & Tile Co. Ltd v Trafalgar Trucking Co Ltd (1989) The Times, March 3 1989.
