This guide provides a thorough and practical introduction to the large and complex area of personal injury and clinical negligence litigation. The text sets out the substantive law governing the legal duties owed by road users, employers and members of the medical profession, and explores topics such as limitation and psychiatric illness, so that the procedural law governing personal injury and clinical negligence claims may be understood in context. In a clear and concise way, it demonstrates how such claims are conducted under the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), from the first interview through to the quantification of damages. The appendices include the 2015 Rehabilitation Code, pre-action protocols for personal injury claims, the resolution of clinical disputes and low value EL and PL claims, as well as extracts from the latest Ogden tables. There is also a personal injury case study which includes key documentation.
This new edition has been updated to include the Whiplash Injury Regulations 2021 and changes to the CPR/pre-action protocols relating to this area of practice.
The new editions of The University of Law SQE Plus manuals have been revised to bring the law and procedure up to date as at 1 September 2021, including Brexit-related changes.

This book can be used for the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Key Practice Area as part of the Private Client Pathway of the SQE Plus.
Each title is designed to operate as a study manual, rather than solely a textbook. This means that understanding of the subject is developed using worked examples and activities.
For students only at The University of Law, the study manuals are used alongside other learning resources to prepare students not only for achievement of an academic qualification, but also for a future life in professional legal practice.
