Invluable guidance on how to calculate dependency in FAA claims
Essential for personal injury and clinical negligence practitioners, this course will discuss the case of Knauer (Widower and Administrator of the Estate of Sally Ann Knauer) v Ministry of Justice , in which the Supreme Court reversed the previous House of Lords judgment regarding calculation of multipliers in claims under Fatal Accidents Act 1976.
Consideration will be given to the New Ogden Method, used to calculate the amount of money that dependents of victims of fatal accidents will receive and s.4 of the Fatal Accidents Act which details benefits to the dependents.
This is a practical session during which lecturer Nicky Carter will go through a worked example of a FAA calculation concerning losses from the date of trial.
