With the implementation of the Woolf reforms, practitioners working in the fields of personal injury and clinical negligence will have to fundamentally review their working practice.PI Major Claims Handling - Cost-Effective Case Management guides practitioners through the stages of a claim from when the claimant walks through their office door to the final outcome.

This comprehensive guide considers the position of both the defendant and the claimant and deals with issues such as funding, preparation for trial, financial aspects and medical issues.It also covers conditional fees, the NHSLA and funding from the defendant's perspective.Written by experts in the field, PI Major Claims Handling: Cost-Effective Case Management is an essential guide to handling PI claims in the post 'Woolf' era.
