This book provides a concise and straightforward guide to liability, quantum and tactics for claimant and defendant practitioners alike. Trainees will find clear answers to everyday problems, and practical ways to keep problems from arising. Experienced practitioners will welcome the emphasis on post-CPR case law and treatment of awkward points such as the crossover with employment law. Internet users will appreciate the neutral citations which give access to the full text of a range of cases.

An invaluable first point of reference on standard issues it also covers: care and equipment claims; chronic pain syndrome; the standard of care for children; manual handling accidents; covert video surveillance; expert and other evidence; the handling of Small Claims; and symptoms of common injuries.

The busy practitioner will appreciate the time-saving precedents, specimen letters and questionnaires all appended in Word on a CD-ROM.
