The areas of work in which we have particular expertise, experience and excellence.
Briefings | Wed 26th Aug, 2020
It has been a strange summer yet all too soon the nation is deflating paddling pools, spending the national
debt of a small country in shoe shops and fervently sewing on name tapes as September and a new academic
and then legal year approach. We hope many of you have managed some sort of break from home working
/ living at work despite all the difficulties with travel this summer. We were particularly tickled when one of
our clients suggested setting an “out of spare room” autoreply on his email, rather than “out of the office”.
The personal injury team at 1CL thought we would ease you into the new season with an update on some
recent developments and cases that we hope will provide a welcome distraction from shortening days and
the “new normal”, whatever that is…
Thomas Yarrow considers insurance requirements for escooters and ebikes and the debate within the
insurance industry that this is provoking.
Roderick Abbott provides a useful analysis of the recent High Court appeal in the case of Pegg v Webb
 EWHC 2095 (QB) in which Martin Spencer J considered fundamental dishonesty in a case with
inconsistencies in the facts of a sort that the County Courts deal with day in day out.
Christopher Pask discusses the case of Holmes v S&B Concrete  EWHC 2277 (QB) which dealt with the
tricky question of the effect of restoring a company to the register on limitation and is a decision that all
personal injury practitioners need to be aware of.
