PI Claimant Seminar @ The MShed

23 Nov, 2017

Thursday 23rd November 2017

The MShed, Wapping Wharf, Bristol

This year we are delighted to be able to welcome Rouin Amirfeyz, an eminent hand and wrist surgeon, with considerable experience in medico-legal work.

In addition, members of the team will speak on: non-delegable duties (after the Supreme Court decision in Armes v Notts CC on 18th December 2017); all aspects of care claims and issues (gratuitous and commercial); how to settle cases where discount rates are fluctuating.

There will also be a choice of in-depth workshops on fatal accident claims and the impact of dishonesty in PI claims, and a detailed update in relation to Procedure, Costs Management and Substantive Law.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to the seminar.
