Staying safe and avoiding the pitfalls of personal injury practice
A series of webinars to ensure that your cases run smoothly

To help 2021 run smoothly  for our members APIL is running a series of webinars on the theme of “staying safe” in the running of personal injury cases. The webinars look at key area of practice and procedure, examine where any why things go wrong and then how to avoid problems.  We then look at the steps that can be taken to rectify matters if things have gone wrong.

Judges regularly complain that witness statements are inadequate and do not contain sufficient information, alternatively that they contain much information that is irrelevant and the witness is unable to give.  

This webinar looks at:

  • The mandatory requirements for witness statements and the consequences of non-compliance 
  • Protecting the witness from the lawyer
  • Protecting the lawyer from the witness
  • Witness statements and proportionality
  • Where lawyers go badly wrong with witness evidence
  • Explaining the significance of the statement of truth.A checklist for taking a statement
