We are all acutely aware that the care sector is in crisis. Recruitment and retention of staff is proving more difficult than ever and, as a consequence, there has been huge growth in the wages being offered to carers.
The changes have major implications for injury claimants who require care packages. Dan Herman joined Emma Lyons to discuss requirements for experts reporting in these cases, case managers (on the ground and in witness evidence) and members of rehabilitation teams.
Dan will explored practical steps to consider in the course of litigation to protect claimants and ensure the advancement of appropriate and realistic care claims.
