The second Jackson report of July 2017 introduces the idea of further fixed costs into all areas of personal injury, as well as further tariff fees in road traffic claims, fixed costs in clinical negligence, and fixed costs in multi-track cases. These changes are likely to come into effect in October 2018/ early 2019 together with additional changes to the small claims track limits.
This book aims to be a clear but comprehensive guide to all aspects of the 2018/2019 Jackson reforms that can be utilised by practitioners on a day-to-day basis, in Claimant and Defendant practice. This book has a focus on running personal injury cases in an efficient way, post-Jackson, spotting the winners and vetting the losing claims early on. The book explains the changes in a clear and comprehensive way and explores how to overcome/mitigate the changes in practice.
