This work is a concise and thorough account of the principles and practice involved in the assessment of damages in personal injury litigation, taken from the standpoint of the practitioner. This practical manual is cross-referenced to Kemp & Kemp: the Quantum of Damages, the leading work on damages.

The chapters on future pecuniary loss and actuarial evidence have been completely re-written to take account of the important decision of the House of Lords in Wells v Wells, which has revolutionised the assessment of future pecuniary loss.

The appendices contain a large amount of vital information, including relevant statutory material. Comprehensive coverage of recent developments; Key case law is covered, such as Digby v. Essex County Council and Khan v. Armaguard on the disclosure of tele-visual evidence.

Written in a highly practical and readable style, the book is a useful 'vade-mecum', saving you time in locating reference material.
