Why should you buy APIL Guide to Occupational Illness Claims Third edition
The APIL Guide to Occupational Illness Claims is a practical handbook designed for all those involved in this area of specialist personal injury litigation.
Claims for occupational illnesses acquired through exposure to substances, forces or environmental factors in the workplace share common problems, such as establishing causation and foreseeability, identifying when limitation periods begin and end, as well as involving complicated medical or expert evidence on which cases may succeed or fail.
This guide, now in its third edition, provides a convenient one-stop source of reference for occupational illness claims. It outlines the vast array of statutory provisions which regulate this area of law helping you to identify which laws were in force at the time of the exposure. It explains the nature of the common occupational illnesses and the problems associated with complicated expert evidence required to establish liability. Practical advice on pursuing and valuing the claim is given, as well as expertly drafted pleadings for each of the occupational illnesses.

- Causation and material contribution to risk - Single tortfeasor cases (Sienkiewicz v Greif).
