Hassam v Rabot – The Supreme Court Decision: Mixed Whiplash and Non-Tariff Injuries

All levels - 1 hour

(Please note that the number of CPD hours may be subject to change)

The scheme introduced under the Civil Liability Act 2018 set out a tariff for whiplash injuries that applies in most cases. What it did not do is provide for how you value a claim where there is a whiplash injury and another type of injury.

APIL intervened in two cases Rabot and Briggs that made their way to the Supreme Court. Judgment was handed down on the 26 March 2024.

Join Brett Dixon, APIL Senior Fellow, who was directly involved in that intervention to for a rapid up to date look at the decision.
