"There are 5 million self-employed people in the United Kingdom, making up 15.3% of the workforce."
A self-employed person faces particular difficulties when seeking to recover loss of earnings after being injured.
This webinar looks at the particular difficulties of acting for self-employed people who suffer loss of earnings due to injury, focussing on:
- The particular problems of the self-employed claimant
- When a claimant has not been fully declaring their income to the Inland Revenue.
- The injured business owner
- The effect of a limited company
- Calculating net loss
- Pension losses and the self-employed claimant
The webinar then goes on to look at issues in claiming losses in cases where the injured claimant earns, or hopes to earn, a living through sports and entertainment, looking at cases where damages have been awarded and when a claim for “loss of chance” has been found to be appropriate.
Those attending the webinar will also be sent “loss of earnings” questionnaire which has a specific section for self-employed/business owners.
