Accommodation and appliance claims - Part of the damages series 2024

All levels - 1 hour

(Please note that the number of CPD hours may be subject to change)

This is a series of webinars looking at the basic elements of major heads of damages for personal injury, with a particular emphasis on those claims in the intermediate and multi track.  In addition to looking at essential elements it looks at recent cases to illustrate in a practical way how damages are established (or not established) at trial.

Claims for accommodation and appliances are a major part of many serious claims.  Here we look at the legal principles underlying these claims and how these should be formulated in the schedule looking at recent cases, including CCC v Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust [2023] EWHC 1770 (KB)
