"100% of the feedback received for Gordon's last webinar, marked it as "excellent""

Many practitioners engage daily in the assessment of personal injury damages without a detailed knowledge of the fundamental principles, yet these principles are regularly considered by judges when determining difficult practical issues relating to damages.

Topics to be covered include:

  • What is an "injury"?
  • What is a claimant being compensated for?
  • What factors affect the award for pain and suffering?
  • Does the age of the claimant matter?
  • Who bears the burden of proof in mitigation of loss?
  • What is the different between a Smith -v- Manchester award and a Blamire award?
  • The practical significance of the law of damages in the investigation and quantification of personal injury damages
