The Court of Appeal recently ruled in Swift v Carpenter. Their decision changes the law for people requiring special accommodation following an injury. After nearly 50 years of uncertain damages in cases of this nature, Claimants will now receive fair and reasonable compensation to purchase special accommodation.
Darryl Allen QC represented the Personal Injuries Bar Association, the only permitted intervener in the appeal. He provides his perspective on the judgment, in the latest instalment of our webinar series.
