Pump Court Chambers are delighted to announce the publication of ‘A Practical Guide to The Pre-Action RTA Claims Protocol for Personal Injury Lawyers’, by Antonia Ford.
The Pre-Action Protocol for Low Value Personal Injury Claims in Road Traffic Accidents (the Protocol) provides a streamlined process for the handling of personal injury claims valued between £1000 and £25,000. For RTA personal injury litigators the Protocol is pervasive. It affects decision making relating to appropriate cases to pursue, how those cases progress and ultimately the steps necessary within the litigation. Despite its objectives of simplifying claims and increasing access to justice, the Protocol exposes users to a number of potholes which could adversely affect a claim’s outcome and could expose Practitioners and Claimants to both cost and damages sanctions.
The aim of this book is to provide a practical guide to all stages of the RTA Protocol to assist in the handling of pre-litigation claims and inform Practitioners of the potential impact that pre-litigation decisions may have on future litigation.
