LOSS OF EARNINGS ON MY OTHER BLOG
I maintain another Blog Accidents at Work & Loss of Earnings Claims. I have put a post on that blog on proving loss of earnings with 16 simple questions the witness statement should address in order that a claim for loss of earnings can be more securetly established at trial.
This goes some way to dealing with the kind of problem that the claimant had in McRae -v- Chase International Express Ltd  EWCA Civ 505, the case considered in detail in the recent post on witness statements.
