The child claimant and fatal accident litigation (LIVE WEBINAR)

All levels - 1 hour

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

"As always these updates are very informative"

This webinar looks at the particular problems and issues faced by a child who has suffered the loss of parents or carers.  It looks at the position when children are the sole claimants, have a dependency claim as part of a family and potential claims by the “adult child”.

  • Bringing an action on behalf of a child in a fatal case
  • When the child is the only dependant. How does the court approach damages?
  • When the child has to move household - the complex legal issues
  • How are damages assessed if the dead parent provided poor care?
  • What is the position when there are “two families”?
  • “Does the adult child” have a claim?
  • Apportionment of damages and child claimants

The webinar will include an outline of the relevant case law and legal principles.

It will also provide a useful checklist and questionnaire of the specific matters that litigators need to consider in relation to children and fatal accident litigation.
