APIL Guide to Accidents at Work

Second Edition

By Matthew Stockwell, Nigel Tomkins

According to the UK's Health and Safety Executive, there were over 148,000 reported accidents at work in 2010/2011, of which over 26,000 were major injuries. APIL Guide to Accidents at Work is designed specifically to meet the needs of claimant personal injury lawyers acting on behalf of workers who have suffered work-place injuries in the UK. The book is a practical and authoritative text which sets out the law and practice required to conduct such claims effectively. APIL Guide to Accidents at Work enables practitioners to make individual, principled assessments of employer's liability cases by focusing on the main UK common law principles and key statutory provisions, together with procedural guidance and practical advice on running a case. This second edition has been extensively revised and updated, and it includes a new chapter on risk assessment, a new section containing draft model pleadings, and all major case law.
