This guide provides a thorough and practical introduction to the large and complex area of personal injury and clinical negligence litigation. The text sets out the substantive law governing the legal duties owed by road users, employers and members of the medical profession, and explores topics such as limitation and psychiatric illness, so that the procedural law governing personal injury and clinical negligence claims may be understood in context. In a clear and concise way, it demonstrates how such claims are conducted under the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), from the first interview through to the quantification of damages. The appendices include the 2015 Rehabilitation Code, pre-action protocols for personal injury claims, the resolution of clinical disputes and low value EL and PL claims, as well as extracts from the latest Ogden tables. There is also a personal injury case study which includes key documentation.
This new edition has been fully updated to include all relevant developments including the Civil Liability Act 2018, the further reduction of the discount rate to –0.25% and amendments to the CICA Scheme 2012. Key recent case law is covered, including Bellman v Northampton Recruitment Ltd and JT v First-tier Tribunal.
