5.0 out of 5 stars A surprising find, 3 Jun 2009
This review is from: APIL Guide to RTA Liability (Paperback)
I will confess that I was initially sceptical about this book. I wondered whether there was anything new or interesting to say about liability in road traffic accident cases. I am happy to report that my scepticism was misplaced. This is a well written and concise book, which strikes a good balance between addressing difficult issues such as the liability of the Motor Insurer's Bureau and providing a fresh summary of well trodden scenarios such as accidents at roundabouts.

I was particularly impressed with the practical focus of the authors. One example of this is the chapter on low velocity collisions. As well as a clear analysis of the leading authorities in this area, the author gives guidance on the types of expert evidence typically relied on in these cases, and on suggested Part 35 Questions for both claimants and defendants. As a result I have no doubt that this book will provide lawyers with useful guidance in running cases.

Inevitably a portion of the book covers rather well familiar ground. There are chapters examining driver's liability at roundabouts, traffic lights and on overtaking which will be familiar scenarios to any lawyer practising in this area. However in order to produce a comprehensive book on road traffic liability, it was necessary to include these chapters. They are addressed concisely, with real insight and at times with humour. Reading these pages will provide all practitioners with new ideas and ammunition.

For more experienced lawyers, the real meat of this work lies in the later chapters which deal with issues such as road traffic accidents abroad, motor insurer's liability and the Motor Insurer's Bureau. These are genuinely tricky, technical subjects. The writers deserve great credit for addressing them with clarity and precision. Many practitioners will be grateful to find them all covered in one work.

In summary, the barristers of 9 Gough Square have produced an unlikely gem of a book. It is well written and engaging throughout and brings clarity to difficult issues and fresh ideas to frequently occurring scenarios.

This review is from: APIL Guide to RTA Liability (Paperback)
The book was purchased to help with my work as an accident investigator. The book contains a huge amount of information which can be difficult to find but don't know how you could improve the indexing. It was the case law detail that I was interested in and theres info by the bucketful. Excellent book and just what I needed.
