Catastrophic injury: an exercise in persuasion
Stephen Cottrell outlines the art of drafting schedules of loss in catastrophic injury claims in an article first published by the Personal Injury Law Journal in April 2015.
He considers the special challenges inherent in pleading schedules in catastrophic claims and explains how the schedule presents the claimant’s lawyers with a unique opportunity to persuade the defendant and the court of the strength of the claimant’s case.
This article considers the different approach to pleading required in catastrophic cases as opposed to less serious injury claims.
