A comprehensive guide to running a successful asbestos claim
I am delighted to announce that I will be joining leading asbestos claims practitioner Daniel Easton again this year in presenting our asbestos claims training for the Association of Personal Injuries Lawyers. We are running this course on 1 May and 20 June 2015.
This full day course carries 6 CPD points.
Asbestos related claims is one of the most dynamic areas of personal injury law, featuring several Government initiatives and a plethora of abstruse principles and semantic points of contention. Our objective is to cover all the substantive law and procedural aspects of this complex field of practice - clearly and succinctly.
We guarantee that you won't get bored!
We have some fascinating new cases to share with you. The Fairchild exception has been reevaluated in Henegham v Manchester Dry Docks Ltd and others  EWHC 4190 (QB) where Mr Justice Jay has provided the first direct ruling on the application of the Fairchild rule in lung cancer cases; it offers fresh, if controversial, insights and is likely to be appealed.
The Supreme Court decision in International Energy Group Ltd v Zurich Insurance Plc UK is expected imminently. There are also some important decisions on the foresight of injury, the duty of care and limitation and a host of important practical matters to share.
We provide a comprehensive set of notes and materials as all the text books are now badly out of date.
If you handle industrial disease claims or are interested in diversifying your practice into this highly technical field, then this is one course you cannot afford to miss.
To attend one of these courses, please contact the lovely people at APIL.
Some of the very kind feedback we have received:
- They make a very complex area of law understandable.
- Most comprehensive documents / course materials to ever accompany a course I have attended - thank you!
- Nicholas Bevan's notes and speaking was incredibly comprehensive and the notes will be useful reference going forward.
