The APIL Guide to Occupational Illness Claims is a practical handbook designed for all those involved in this area of specialist personal injury litigation. It is a one-stop source of reference, which provides:-

  • An outline of the myriad statutory provisions which regulate this area and the effective date of those provisions, helping you to identify which provision was in force at the date of exposure
  • The nature and medical background to common occupational illnesses
  • An explanation of the problems associated with complicated expert evidence
  • Practical advice on pursuing and valuing the claim, the procedure for restoring companies to the register, etc.
  • Expertly drafted precedents, draft schedules of damages and model pleadings
This new edition has been completely rewritten by a team of specialist personal injury lawyers, taking into account major changes in law and practice since the first edition of this book, including:
  • A reworked and extended chapter on causation dealing with the development of the law from Fairchild v Glenhaven Funeral Services to Seinkiewicz, putting the law into context for practical litigation
  • A more detailed treatment of stress at work claims incorporating the latest judicial attitudes applying the accepted principles in Barber v Somerset County Council
  • An expanded chapter on Limitation provides detailed guidance on constructive knowledge and section 33 discretion
