Low Velocity Impacts in RTAs. Jake Rowley’s newest publication is released

Published: 31/01/2023 | News

Jake Rowley’s second book – “Low Velocity Impacts in Road Traffic Accidents: Law and Practice” – has been released.

The book considers and analyses the law relating to low velocity collisions, and provides practical advice and guidance in relation to the preparation and running of LVI cases from both Claimant and Defendant perspectives.  Amongst other topics, it covers: the tell-tale hallmarks of a LVI collision; the two key Court of Appeal cases in Kearsley and Casey; the different sources of relevant evidence, as well as how and when such evidence should be obtained and deployed; and the reasons LVI cases succeed, or fail, at trial.

LVI cases remain a common and important feature of most personal injury lawyer’s practices and a comprehensive understanding of the law and practicalities of such claims is essential.  It is hoped this new publication provides a thorough and user-friendly practitioner text to guide and assist those engaged in such litigation.


The book, published by Law Brief Publishing Ltd, is available now direct from the publisher, where a chapter can be read entirely free of charge: (http://www.lawbriefpublishing.com/product/lowvelocityimpacts/).

Or alternatively through Amazon:
