The law and practice of credit hire claims is surprisingly rich in knotty points of law. Whether it is dealing with concepts of damages, mitigation, market rates, betterment, loss of profits or enforceability of the underlying credit hire contracts, the role of hire cars in the 21st century is comparable to that of ships in the 19th century, in developing the substantive law of damages.
I regularly advise on points of law arising out of credit hire claims.
I have a deep knowledge and understanding of motor insurance law, including issues arising under the Road Traffic Act 1988.
I have advised upon arbitrations under the Untraced Drivers Scheme operated by the Motor Insurers Bureau and claims to overturn such decisions in the Commercial Court.
