Exploring claims arising out of shortened life expectancy, this webinar will focus on eligibility to bring claims and the methods by which the courts assess damages including available surplus & adjusting the multiplier.

During this session, Aneurin Moloney of Hardwicke Chambers will discuss the case of Croke v Wiseman [1982] 1 WLR 71 and how claims brought by child claimants with no dependants technically should not succeed. Consideration will also be given to the cases of Iqbal v Whipps Cross University NHS Trust [2007] and JR v Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust [2017]

Suitable for claimant and defendant practitioners of any level, this session will offer an invaluable insight or reminder into lost years claims for those in personal injury and clinical negligence practice.

What are CPD hours/points?

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
