Maximising damages & costs in PI cases – tips & tactics

Maximising damages for claimants in RTA cases is now important given that firms can take up to 25% of the claimant’s damages under the CFA. This raises real problems of access to justice in low value cases – in order to encourage law firms to take on these cases, there has to be incentive for firms to do so. Otherwise they will simply not undertake low value cases, and thus restricting access to justice for accident victims.

The costs of law firms conducting work in the portals has also been restricted, and we now have the introduction of fixed costs PI cases post Jackson.

MBL’s half day course will give you a thorough understanding of issues surrounding maximising damages in PI RTA cases and costs, from inception to settlement or trial, and from a claimant’s perspective, post Jackson.

The course will focus on practical advice and tips, looking at how to efficiently and effectively investigate such cases.
