Loss of earnings

All levels - 1 hour

(Please note that the number of CPD hours may be subject to change)

This webinar looks at major issues in relation to claims for loss of income, how they are presented and how they are established at trial

  • The law as to loss of earnings
  • How a claim for loss of income is calculated
  • Disability in the labour market, evidence, the schedule and the witness statement
  • The Blamire award
  • Awards for loss of congenial employment
  • The self-employed claimant
  • The schedule of damages and claims for loss of earnings
  • Proving loss of earnings at trial – some practical examples
  • A client questionnaire for loss of earnings


This series goes through each major element of a claim for damages, looking at how they should be presented in the schedule of damages coupled with the evidence needed to prove each element of the claim.  

The series can be viewed as a whole but each webinar is self-contained looking at a particular element of the claim, how it is established by evidence and how it is presented in the schedule of damages.  Emphasis is placed on ensuring the claim is presented accurately and on avoiding both under-valuing the claim and allegations of exaggeration.

This webinar is part of a six session series and further webinars in the series include:

Pain and suffering
Loss of earnings
Care claims
Accommodation and appliance claims
Periodical payments and provisional damages
