APIL Guide to Fatal Accidents

Third Edition

By Gordon Exall

In the UK, fatal accidents present lawyers with a set of problems distinct from those of non-fatal personal injury claims. In particular, who does the law categorize as a dependant and how is the claim for dependency calculated? Now in its third edition, the APIL Guide to Fatal Accidents provides practical advice on how to run a UK case involving a fatal accident and how to secure maximum awards for the family, friends, and estate of the deceased. The book has been extensively revised and updated as follows: a new chapter on pre-action conduct * a new chapter on damages in anticipation of death * Ogden 7 * a new section on fatal accidents and same sex relationships * a revised chapter on Coroners Inquests following the implementation of the UK's Coroners (Investigations) Regulations 2013 and the Coroners (Inquests) Rules 2013. Practical materials, such as client questionnaires, draft pleadings, and schedules of damages complement the text. In addition, the relevant statutory materials and the seventh edition of the Ogden Tables are reproduced for ease of reference. [Subject: Personal Injury Law]
