24 Nov 2020, 14:00 - 14:30

The Hardwicke Clinical Negligence & Personal Injury Team invite you to join them in an informal Zoom chat to discuss recent developments in fatals cases. Topics to be covered include:

  • Extending bereavement damages to established co-habitees, following the declaration of incompatibility in Smith v Lancs Teaching Hospitals NHS and the Fatal Accidents Act 1976 (Remedial) Order2020;
  • Practical tips for bringing and defending financial dependency claims in the light of recent cases;
  • The appropriate approach to ‘wealth creator’ cases, drawing on Rix v Paramount Shopfitting Co Ltd[2020] EWHC 2398;
  • Where the deceased would have cared for the home and the foster children whilst the Claimant wife continued to work: Witham v Steve Hill Ltd [2020] EWHC 299.

This session will be hosted by Charles Bagot QC and Aneurin Moloney and moderated by Colm Nugent.

Bring your own coffee or other drink and come and exchange views with us on how things are going in the remote world – of the court, work and generally.

If you would like to raise any questions in advance, please email Aneurin. You will also have the chance to raise them during the session.

Wandering children or pets welcome!

If you would like to join in, please email events@hardwicke.co.uk and, subject to numbers, we will send you a link to the #HardwickeBrew.

We look forward to catching up at a safe social distance!
