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.
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.
This webinar is part of an eight-part series.
