The management of catastrophic injury claims is complex. They involve detailed and ongoing care and rehabilitation regimes, important decisions on accommodation, sophisticated case management involving technical procedural matters often involving the Court of Protection, significant use of expert evidence in multiple disciplines, as well as complicated settlement and financial structures including periodical payment orders.
Involving numerous experts of different disciplines, these claims require the practitioner to 'marshall' and manage the team, as well as particular requirements regarding client care. The APIL Guide to Catastrophic Injury Claims provides a guide to best practice in the complex area of catastrophic injury litigation. The text provides guidance on case management, practical help in dealing with and addressing issues of expert evidence, an in-depth discussion of damages and an analysis of relevant primary source material.
