On the 11th August 2020 I am presenting a webinar “Deductions from Damages and Mitigation of Loss”.

 

THE WEBINAR

This webinar looks at those matters that could reduce the damages a claimant receives in a personal injury case, looking firstly at deductions from damages (outside the CRU regime) and then at issues relating to mitigation of loss.

DEDUCTIONS FROM DAMAGES

The webinar will cover

  • What is the position in relation to the deduction of benefits not subject to CRU?
  • Are insurance payments deductible?
  • What if the claimant is paid gratuitously?
  • What if there are savings in living expenses?
  • What happens if the claimant’s tax position changes
  • Does the court take account of an improvement in the claimant’s working conditions?

MITIGATION OF LOSS

  •  The “duty” to mitigate loss – is this a misnomer?
  • Who should plead a failure to mitigate?
  • When should a claimant plead a failure to mitigate?
  • The burden of proof in mitigation of loss
  • The consequence of a failure to mitigate
  • Common issues of failure to mitigate loss in personal injury cases
