Court control of care inflation: the ‘new old’ guidelines

Please note this webinar has now taken place.

We are delighted to be hosting our latest serious and catastrophic injury webinar on Thursday 21 September where we will be discussing important guidelines and changes in relation to care evidence.

In the recent cases of Muyepa v Ministry of Defence and Scarcliffe v Brampton Valley Group Ltd, the High Court has called out the gaming of care evidence for damages inflation and reminded parties of first principles in relation to reasonable need and the duties of independent experts. The judgments offer compensators a welcome reset of care claims and a counter-balance to care rates inflation. Mark Burton, Partner and chair of Kennedys’ catastrophic injury group, will review both judgments and suggest new practical strategies for managing care evidence differently and better.
