APIL Guide to Tripping and Slipping Cases

2nd Edition

By Charles Foster, Ben Bradley

Tripping and slipping cases form a large part of the typical personal injury lawyer's practice. However, not all cases are straightforward; many involve complex questions of law. This book covers all the legal disciplines that can come into play in a tripping or slipping case in the UK - local government, landlord and tenant, occupier's liability, highways, health and safety at work, and so on. It gives detailed guidance on the applicable UK law, procedure, and practice. The book contains a library of precedents, from checklists and letters through to Statements of Case. Most of the relevant guidelines are included as appendices, and the facts and principles of the key cases (often contained in inaccessible law reports) are distilled into case summaries. This second edition has been revised to include the following developments: substantial changes at common law in respect of the way in which the tort of nuisance can be deployed in highway cases * an update of recent UK case law pertaining to the application of the s.58 statutory defense * consideration of the circumstances in which a Ward v Tesco defense still applies in light of Butcher v Southend-on-Sea BC [2014] EWCA Civ 1556 * an update to the workplace accidents section, in view of the introduction of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013.
