In this 2014 December edition of our Personal Injury & Travel Update, Andrew Young discusses three cases. One is a recent decision on the Rome II Regulation on the applicable law for non-contractual claims. The next is a decision that will be of interest to solicitors who have to deal with costs issues, as it lays down a clear rule about the need to investigate all other possible sources of client funding for litigation before entering into a conditional fee agreement, and the implications of not doing so. Finally, he looks at the recent Court of Appeal case, Lougheed v On The Beach Ltd  EWCA Civ 1538, which once again shows the Courts grappling with the issue of how to apply local standards in package claims, and the evidence needed to establish those standards.
