PI & Clinical Negligence

In the wake of the Jackson Review and the Legal Services Act 2011 and the forthcoming implementation of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012, the competition for personal injury work is more intense than ever. Personal injury lawyers of all kinds are under immense pressure not only to turn work around faster, but expand into what might be new and unfamiliar areas (e.g. clinical negligence or occupational disease).

LexisPSL Personal Injury is the only place where you can find all the latest practice notes, legislation, commentary, forms and precedents you need together online. Liability, quantum and procedure, all in one package.

Our clear, concise practice notes give you a succinct overview of each legal area – with direct links for deeper research to Butterworths Personal Injury and Litigation Service, All England Law Reports, Munkman on Damages and Binghams & Berrymans Personal Injury and Motor Claims Cases. We have thousands of quantum cases in one easy-to-search database, with new cases added every week. Plus 20 quantum calculators that can run highly complex calculations for you in minutes (not hours).

LexisPSL Personal Injury also comes with other time-saving tools, like medical drawings and dictionaries to keep you on the right track. And news alerts from senior PI experts, sharing their personal wisdom and practical tips (not just the bare transcript). So you can find everything you need in one place, with less research time. And take on new work, in new areas, with real confidence.
