The Small Claims Track change for personal injury cases is likely to come into effect in October 2018. This book looks at other areas personal injury practitioners have begun to focus in, including housing disrepair and cavity wall claims, which may not fall into the small claims track.

Generally this book covers issues in relation to housing disrepair claims and cavity wall claims, and in particular focuses on the day-to-day issues in practice that one encounters with such cases including spotting the ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ quickly and efficiently, practical tips for investigation, litigation tactics, as well as a summary of the law, the important cases, and how to run these claims efficiently.

Cavity walls claims chapters cover the nature of the claim and technical background, relevant standards, who to sue, allegations of negligence and breach of duty, disclosure, remedies, expert evidence, causation, quantum and costs. The book also covers running the claims on DBAs and coverage of the Damages Based Agreement Regulations 2013.

The Housing Disrepair section covers the nature and technical background of these claims, who to sue, contractual and statutory rights, establishing breach of duty, expert evidence, causation, quantum and costs. This is a book that any personal injury practitioner, looking to diversify into these areas, should not be without.
