Welcome to the November edition of the Farrar’s Building Personal Injury Newsletter.

In this edition Tom Emslie-Smith provides us with his analysis of the position of the law on vicarious liability following the recent case of Bellman v Northampton Recruitment Ltd [2018] EWCA Civ 2214.

Howard Cohen’s article ‘Staring Dishonesty in the Face’ gives a comprehensive review of the current law relating to dishonest claims.

Peter Savory, who is undertaking pupillage at Farrar’s, has provided a summary of some recent cases of interest.

If you have any queries regarding this newsletter or would like any further information on this issue, please contact me or any of the contributors.
