David Coltart’s Law Firm Ordered To Pay Client Over $12 000 For Mishandling Case

Posted by Tayana

Webb, Low and Barry Legal Practitioners where David Coltart is a senior partner was ordered by Supreme Court judge Justice Francis Bere to pay a client more than $12 000 for mishandling a case. In his application David Addenbrooke cited David Coltart, Josphat Tshuma and Norman James Pattison as defendants.

He sought an order directing the trio to compensate him after the sale of his property following a default judgment entered against him due to an act of negligence by Webb, Low and Barry Legal Practitioners.  Addenbrooke lost property worth $10 300 after it was sold in execution as a result of the mishandling by Coltart’s law firm.

Justice Bere ordered the defendants to compensate Addenbrooke $10 300 including $2 507 being legal fees he incurred in the lawsuit. In August 2011, Addenbrooke was involved in an accident in which one Ms Portia Mhere sustained injuries. He was arrested, convicted of negligent driving and fined $400. Mhere through her lawyers Majoko and Majoko Legal Practitioners approached the High Court seeking $15 000 compensation for the injuries she sustained during the accident. Addenbrooke engaged Coltart’s law firm to defend the claim against him.
