30 October 2010




Bingham & Berryman's Personal Injury and Motor Claims Cases
13th edition

Michael Pether, Victoria Cargill, Ruth Graham, Andrew Hibbert, Christopher Newton, Ian Walker, Tony Walton, Rodney Wilson


Bingham and Berrymans' Personal Injury and Motor Claims Cases is the leading work in this field and is written by experts in the field of PI and insurance law.

This classic title provides practical guidance and information to all practitioners involved with motor and personal injury insurance litigation.

Covering all reported cases relevant to claims arising out of road traffic accidents, it is a unique combination of practical procedural advice, legal background and diversity of case summaries within, but not exclusive to, the context of motor claims. It clearly explains the principles behind the assessment of damages and offers advice on practice and procedure in the conduct of claims.

The new edition has been extensively updated since the previous edition to take account of major changes in both motor and personal injury litigation, including:

  • analysis of the Court of Appeal decision of Thompstone
  • full implication of periodical payments
  • update on Part 36 payments
  • latest motor liability and motor insurance cases.
