This last week has been interesting for Personal Injury lawyers, not only because of the continuing effects of the Coronavirus public health emergency, but also because the Supreme Court has handed down several long awaited judgments that have clarified and developed important aspects of the law of tort.
Members of 1 Chancery Lane acted in two of the three important cases of Barclays Bank v Various Claimants  UKSC 13, WM Morrisons Supermarkets v Various Claimants  UKSC 12 and Whittington Hospital NHS Trust v XX  UKSC 14.
1 Chancery Lane has prepared briefings discussing the decisions in Barclays, XX and an update of abuse cases that have been handed down this year. This briefing considers some other interesting issues that have detained the courts in 2020.
Richard Collier, Andrew Spencery and Susanna Bennett discuss recent cases in the areas of fundamental dishonesty, causation and contributory negligence and motor insurance. We hope that you enjoy reading about matters that are not concerned with Covid19.
