This book provides practical guidance and information to all practitioners dealing with personal injury litigation and other claims arising out of road traffic accidents. It has a wide scope, containing a combination of practical procedural advice, legal background and summaries of reported cases, extending outside the realm of motor claims where the same are relevant. It also clearly explains the principles behind the assessment of damages and offers advice on practice and procedure in the conduct of claims, including technical issues related to insurance policies and the Motor Insurers' Bureau and in-depth consideration of matters of costs and litigation funding.
The new edition has been extensively updated since the 15th edition (2018) and supplement (2020) by the new editorial team from Temple Garden Chambers. It takes into account all of the major and less major changes in both motor and personal injury litigation that have taken place since those editions. The post-Brexit legal landscape is addressed in some detail. The anecdotal increase in fraudulent claims and credit hire claims are addressed in spotlight. There is also a considerable focus on the future, particularly in terms of the whiplash reforms and automated and electric vehicles (driverless cars).
