Kerry Underwood’s Personal Injury Small Claims, Portals and Fixed Costs has now been published and is available to order here.
Running to over 1,300 pages over three volumes, you certainly get your money’s worth (a steal at £80).
The value of the book falls into three categories:
- It is an indispensable practical guide for any claimant or defendant lawyer (or insurer) dealing with lower value personal injury claims. It is full of tips and guidance that will not only assist on a day-to-day basis but may make the difference between a happy client and a professional negligence claim.
- It should be on the shelf of any costs practitioner who deals with fixed fee cases (or who needs to identify when a case should have been fixed fee).
- It is absolutely essential reading for mangers/owners of claimant solicitor firms who deal with personal injury work. This book spells out how to keep this work profitable (and includes detailed model funding agreements). Failure to buy this book, and follow the advice, may well make the difference between still having a profitable business in five years’ time and having shut up shop long before then.
