Personal Injury Limitation Law (4th edition)

Andrew Roy, Nina Ross

Bloomsbury Professional, £120

Navigating personal injury limitation periods can be a minefield. This guide highlights the pitfalls – and goes on to clearly explain the limitation periods and service rules, thus ensuring that you never issue or serve proceedings outside the legal time limits. Each chapter is supplemented by summaries of key cases for that topic, while Part 2 contains all the relevant legislation. New coverage focuses on landmark cases, analysing their impact on practice. These include: Collins v Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills – an asbestos-related lung cancer case of ‘seminal importance in relation to long tail industrial disease claims’; and Platt v BRB (Residuary) Ltd – an examination of constructive knowledge in the context of limitation in disease cases.
