Claims for loss of earnings of the self-employed and those involved in entertainment and sport

All levels - 1 hour

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

"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.
