The Small Claims Track change for personal injury cases is likely to come into effect in October 2019. This book looks at other areas personal injury practitioners have begun to focus in, including housing disrepair and cavity wall claims, which may not be subject to fixed costs / small claims track costs.
Generally this book covers issues in relation to housing disrepair claims and cavity wall claims, and in particular focuses on the day-to-day issues in practice that one encounters with such cases including spotting the ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ quickly and efficiently, practical tips for investigation, litigation tactics, as well as a summary of the law, the important cases, and how to run these claims efficiently.
