Damages for care: Recent cases and their significance for practitioners - 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.

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. The webinar covers, in particular, the cases and observations made in Scarcliffe -v- Bramton Valley Group Ltd [2023] EWHC 1565 (KB),  Muyepa v Ministry of Defence [2022] EWHC 2648 (KB) and CCC v Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust [2023] EWHC 1770 (KB)
