BUSINESS BOOKS AND REPORTS
Levels of damages in employers' liability claims have risen faster than inflation. In fact, they are hitting startling levels and the upward spiral is continuing. No one concerned with EL claims can afford to fall short of the knowledge and expertise required to handle such claims effectively. There is too much to lose on both sides of every such claim.
The second edition of this Report is a must-have, must-read for all those responsible for advising not only insured and insurers but also claimants. It includes the latest information on the compulsory insurance regulations of 1998. Fred Collins combines knowledge of the legal and technical issues with invaluable guidance on evaluation and action in practice. The Report assesses and analyses employers' liability in all practical aspects.
