ALL DAY COURSE ON FATAL ACCIDENTS, LAW, PRACTICE, PROCEDURE – AND MUCH MORE: 16th NOVEMBER 2022

On the 16th November 2022 I will, along with solicitor Hilary Wetherell, be presented a one day course on Fatal Accidents.  The course will be presented live in London, for those who want to attend, and delegates will also be able to attend remotely. Booking details are available here. https://www.apil.org.uk/training/fatal-accidents-law-practice-procedure-compassion

“Stimulating, scintillating and inspiring on what is a very difficult and sensitive area of the law”

This one day course will take you through every element of a fatal accident claim, with particular emphasis on the compassionate handling of bereaved families and careful client care. The course will cover:

  • The law in relation to liability and causation
  • Investigating the claim, liability, damages and the inquest
  • Funding and attending the inquest.
  • Funding the claim – who is the client? – retainers, drafting them and getting the correct party correctly identified.
  • Who is a dependant?
  • Valuing the dependency claim
  • Non-dependency claims
  • Bereavement damages
  • Losses of the deceased prior to death
  • Damages for injuries to another arising out of the death

We will also look at important recent case law in relation to fatal accidents and dependency.  The course considers the importance of looking at the claim from the claimant’s point of view and the care needed when assisting the recently bereaved. It contains a series of checklists and precedents to enable practitioners to work effectively and there will be series of workshops throughout the day so that people can share experiences and their views.
