5th BIRTHDAY REVIEW 3: AVOIDING NEGLIGENCE CLAIMS

This is the third post that looks back at series of posts over the past five years. The series on avoiding negligence claims was written at the end of 2013. The emphasis was on avoiding negligence claims, particularly for personal injury lawyers.  Unsurprisingly the main emphasis of the series was on limitation, it then went on to consider the “unusual” limitation periods before looking at issues relating to communications with the client.  (I have added some later posts that deal with this issue).

THE SERIES

The series was primarily aimed at personal injury practitioners. Hence the emphasis on limitation.

1. There was a general introduction to the series.

2. The three year limitation period: how does anybody miss it?

3. Not every personal injury limitation period is three years

4. Aviation and the really vicious limitation period.

5. Limitation periods and water travel.

6. The Foreign Limitation Periods Act

7. Communications with the Client.
