NIHL claims are some of the most complex claims a practitioner is likely to face.

Generally this book covers issues in relation to NIHL and hearing loss claims, and in particular focuses on the day-to-day issues in practice that one encounters with such cases including spotting the ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ quickly and efficiently, practical tips for investigation, litigation tactics, as well as a summary of the law, the important cases, and how to run these claims efficiently.

Chapters cover the nature of the claim and technical background, relevant standards, who to sue, allegations of negligence and breach of duty, disclosure, remedies, expert evidence, causation, quantum and costs.

This is a book that any personal injury practitioner, looking to diversify into these areas, should not be without.
