Claimant Lawyers need a clear understanding of the general principles of the recovery of damages as well as the know how to properly compensate their clients for the consequences of injury.

The APIL Guide to Damages will help you to construct a claim for damages by identifying what may or may not be legitimately included, what evidence will be required to support the claim and how to quantify the losses. It begins by setting out the position in relation to general damages and goes on to examine special damages by looking at each possible head of claim, including complex areas such as pension loss. Each chapter contains a brief explanation of the law with practical tips on evidence and procedure, and is illustrated with sample calculations.

This new edition has been substantially revised and updated to take on board the many changes since publication of the first edition including:

  • A new chapter on periodical payments
  • Important new case law such as Sowden v Lodge
  • New editions of the Ogden Tables and JSB Guidelines
The likely impact of interest and benefits on the level of damages received by the claimant is clearly set out together with advice on when interim payments and what investment advice should be given to clients.
