Damages for Personal Injury and Death
A working manual for practitioners assessing damages in personal injury work, this book is fully cross-referenced to Kemp and Kemp on Quantum of Damages and acts as a portable guide to this work. This edition has been reorganized and expanded to reflect the fast-changing nature of this area of law so that all principal topics and important recent developments are covered. Areas updated in this edition include: damages on death; damages for non-pecuniary loss; damages for past pecuniary loss; damages for future pecuniary loss; and the incidence of benefits. Key case law is also covered, such as Digby v Essex County Council and Khan v Armaguard on the disclosing of tele-visual evidence, and Larby v Thurgood on a refusal to stay action unless the plaintiff attends an examination by an employment consultant.
