The drafting of schedules of future losses is often seen as something of a specialist art form.

This comprehensive half-day course looks at schedules of future losses from both the claimant’s and the defendant’s point of view. All aspects of the use of the Ogden tables are covered, from basic aids and equipment calculations through periodic loss of earnings claims with split multipliers through to dependency claims following fatal accidents.
