"It’s the first time we’ve used your company but it was all very smooth and easy, admin wise"

The scheme introduced under the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 has led to deductions from damages in personal injury claims becoming more common place and for some types of work necessary to enable the work to be done properly for our clients.

Challenges, encouraged by some legal firms, by clients to those deductions has also become more commonplace and Belsner v Cam Legal Services represents the latest case law development in this area. 

This webinar will assist with the issues that arise from this judgment including:

  • Defining the problem
  • What happened in Belsner?
  • How it fits in with the decision in Herbert v HH Law
  • What levels of case are impacted?
  • Informed consent and deductions from damages
    • When 
    • How
    • Why
  • Practical steps to take
  • Will there be an appeal?
    • What issues might be relevant?
    • Was the decision right?
