Thank you for the question. In the UK legal system, when a person is successful in their claim, it is the courts aim to put them into the position they would have been in had any such wrongdoing not taken place. Therefore if a claimant wins their claim and can show the respondent has singlehandedly caused an extent of financial loss the court would grant this back to the claimant in the matter. Obviously in reality there will be arguments agains the full amount whether that is mixed liability or wrong quantification of a claim. However if it can be shown by way of evidence the respondent has caused the full economic loss with out any successful defence the court would be likely to award the full financial losses of the claimant by the respondent.
