"Stimulating, scintillating and inspiring on what can be difficult and sensitive areas of the law."

This webinar provides guidance on issues of insolvency for the personal injury practitioner. 

It looks at the position when the claimant is bankrupt, or subject to the insolvency provisions and then looks at the problems of pursuing insolvent defendants. 

The session will cover:

  • What is the position when the claimant is bankrupt: who “owns” the damages and who can bring the action?
  • Avoiding striking out
  • Practical steps that can be taken when the claimant is bankrupt
  • What is the position when a carer is bankrupt?
  • The steps you need to take when proceeding against a bankrupt defendant
  • The steps you need to take when proceeding against an insolvent company
  • Bypassing the problem – when can you sue an insurer directly?
