Care claims

APIL CPD:
Not specified - 1 hour

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

Here we look at claims for care, the law underpinning care and assistance claims, looking at practical ways of preparing the case and presenting the schedule and cover:

  • Medical and hospital expenses – does a claimant have to use the NHS?
  • What is “care”?
  • Quantifying care without the help of an expert
  • Care in minor and non-severe cases
  • Claims for household assistance – does the law treat them differently?
  • Can a claim be made for inability to act as a carer?
  • Care claims in the Schedule

-----------------------------------------

This series goes through each major element of a claim for damages, looking at how they should be presented in the schedule of damages coupled with the evidence needed to prove each element of the claim.  

The series can be viewed as a whole but each webinar is self-contained looking at a particular element of the claim, how it is established by evidence and how it is presented in the schedule of damages.  Emphasis is placed on ensuring the claim is presented accurately and on avoiding both under-valuing the claim and allegations of exaggeration.

This webinar is part of a six session series and further webinars in the series include:

Pain and suffering
Loss of earnings
Care claims
Accommodation and appliance claims
Periodical payments and provisional damages
Dealing with the counter-schedule and counter-arguments in relation to damages
