    Fatal accidents present the lawyer with a set of problems distinct from those of non-fatal personal injury claims. In particular, who does the law categorise as a dependant and how do you calculate the claim for dependency?

    The APIL Guide to Fatal Accidents, now in its fourth edition, provides practical advice on how to run a case involving a fatal accident and how to secure maximum awards for the family, friends and estate of the deceased.

    Useful practical materials such as client questionnaires, draft pleadings and schedules of damages complement the text. In addition the relevant statutory materials and the latest edition of the Ogden Tables are reproduced for ease of reference.
