WEBINAR: Secondary Victim Claims in the light of Paul v Wolverhampton
39 Essex Chambers is delighted to invite you to a webinar discussing the implications of the Judgment of Mr Justice Chamberlain in the recent case of Saffron & Maya Paul v Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust  EWHC 1415.
Charlie Cory-Wright QC, Emily Formby & Ashley Pratt will be discussing the latest in the long line of secondary victim claims. This webinar will not be a history lesson, more a reflection on the latest movement in this difficult area of law.
Discussion will include:
- Background from Taylor v Novo
- Key issues of Paul v Wolverhampton
- Narrow and broad definitions of proximity
- When is an "event" not an "event"
- Can you still have a "two-event" secondary victim claim?
- How to judge the time between breach and consequence: when is it too long?
- What has to be witnessed by the secondary victim?
- Hospital cases and causation: the CA in Ronayne
- What is the significance now of Shorter?
- Does this area of law remain policy led?
- What next?
The webinar will last 45 minutes to an hour so pull up a chair and join in what we hope will be a lively discussion on this difficult but ever fascinating topic.
Date and Time:
Tuesday 30th June @ 3.30pm
