THE FUNDAMENTALS OF PERSONAL INJURY DAMAGES: WEBINAR 7th MAY 2020

I am giving a webinar on the 7th May 2020 – 12.00 – 13.00 on the fundamentals of personal injury damages.

Many practitioners engage daily in the assessment of personal injury damages without a detailed knowledge of the fundamental principles, yet these principles are regularly considered by judges when determining difficult practical issues relating to damages.

Topics to be covered include:

  • What is an “injury”?

  • What is a claimant being compensated for?

  • What factors affect the award for pain and suffering?

  • Does the age of the claimant matter?

  • Who bears the burden of proof in mitigation of loss?

  • What is the different between a Smith -v- Manchester award and a Blamire award?

  • The practical significance of the law of damages in the investigation and quantification of personal injury damage

Booking details are available here.
