It will explain the key principles and it will apply them through fun interactive sessions so as to make the training accessible to all levels of fee earner. it will take you through all the practical steps to ensure that your clients recover their full compensatory entitlement: whether from a contractual or statutory RTA insurer, an owner in breach of the statutory duty to insure or from the Motor Insurers Bureau.
