Construction claims often involve multiple parties with related responsibilities.

This webinar explores how the law determines who may be liable, for what and how any apportionment between jointly liable defendants is assessed.

It will assist viewers in examining multi-party situations and analysing their way to an assessment of possible outcomes, with practical examples from real cases.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • The legal basis for responsibility for design
  • The latest case law on ‘duty to warn’
  • How principles of causation operate in multi-party cases
  • By reference to case law, how the courts apportion liability between defendants who are jointly liable for the same loss
  • How the above may be affected by contract terms

This pre-recorded webinar will be streamed at 12:30pm on Wednesday 8th May 2024 and will remain available to view by delegates who have registered by then for 90 days.
