This webinar looks at the difficult, but important, issue of how the courts award damages when a claimant has reduced life expectancy as a result of their injuries.

  • What is the effect of a judgment or settlement prior to death?
  • How does reduced life expectancy affect the award for pain and suffering?
  • What is the appropriate multiplier when there is reduced life expectancy?
  • How do you calculate losses when the claimant is self-employed or running a business?
  • Are funeral expenses recoverable when a claimant has a reduced life expectancy?
  • How do you calculate loss of income during the "lost years"?
  • Can a child claimant claim for "lost years"?
  • Can you claim for DIY and services  during the lost years?
  • Does the claimant have to prove a loss?
  • Practical steps that the claimant's solicitor can take

In addition the webinar looks at the awards for pain and suffering made prior to death or when the claimant has a reduced life expectancy.
