''RTA Personal Injury Claims: A Practical Guide Post Jackson" - a review by Jonathan Dingle FRSA Barrister 218 Strand London
"There was a moment, just one, two weeks before Sir Rupert published his report, that this reviewer might have saved much of the profession engaged in personal injury law from the slough of despond that is sometimes said to have engulfed it. I was perambulating along the Strand, towards chambers, when I noticed the eminent pate of Lord Justice Jackson a few paces in front of me, rapidly approaching the pelican crossing on Arundel Street. I can only believe that he was so weighed by QOWCS that he looked the wrong way and went to step out, gamely, in front of a unstopping and unforgiving taxi. I grabbed his Lordship and pulled him back from a fate worse than costs budgetting, and the rest is history.
I doubt whether the near-RTA episode lived long in Sir Rupert's fine mind, but, in contrast, Andrew Mckie's usefully little book should serve for many years as an aposite acolyte to RTA practitioners. It contains almost all the hallmarks of elegant practicality: it is up to date, easy to read, and assembled by an acknowledged master of his trade. There is both law and practice, regulation and precedent in its pages, presented in a manner that is both simple and effective. It should have a deserved place on the desks of those working in the field.
The book is designed to be "dipped into" as the author said. It works well in that regard, although I read it through in one sitting and learned some new jurisprudence I would only have got through such a course. I would suggest that it is two hours well spent in any practitioner's weekend, train journey, or attempt to avoid the final of Bake Off. There is much to gain, and the breadth of Mckie's experience shines through.
It is not without flaws: there is the odd (and rare) typo, the best of which invites practitioners to exercise causation rather than caution when dealing with partial admissions by insurers. Actually, exercising causation is probably what many a technical claims manager needs to brighten their day in central Cardiff, or Newport or Swansea. But my main criticism, if it can be so described, goes to the lack of an index and of a table of authorities. The book deserves a second edition in due course and I would invite the author and publisher to make it even more useful by the addition of these two facilitators. There is so much to access that would be made easier by rear end shunting an index into the work.
Overall, this book is very good value - it is certainly worthwhile tabbing up and using to avoid pitfalls and pooh traps. I congratulate the author on his practical scholarship and unreservedly commend it, even to those who might now prefer me to have pushed a knight of the realm under the wheels of a Hackney cab." - Jonathan Dingle 24 Aug 15
