Personal Injury Limitation Law is a practical reference guide to all aspects of PI limitation law, provides a wealth of case summaries, both reported and unreported and contains relevant legislation and rules.

The principle Act governing this area of law is the Limitation Act 1980. The new edition reflects changes since the previous edition including changes in relation to section 14 of the Limitation Act 1980 with greater levels of objectivity placed on the claimant's knowledge of the time limits, and on section 33 of the Act on the discretion to disapply the limitation period.

The book deals with the practical implication of these key changes and includes cases relating to these areas including the following principal cases which have recently been heard and judgment passed by either the Court of Appeal or the House of Lords:-

  • Haward v Fawcetts,
  • MoD v AB,
  • A v Hoare,
  • Young v Western Power Distribution,
  • McDonnell v Congregation of Christian Brothers Trustees,
  • Whiston v London Strategic Health Authority,
  • B v Nugent Care and
  • Cain v Franci
