PRE-ACTION PROTOCOL FOR PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS

The notes of guidance to the protocol state that it is intended to apply to all actions which include a claim for personal injury and to the entirety of those claims, not just the personal injury element of them (Protocol, para 2.2). So, for instance, if there is a claim for personal injury and property damage, then the protocol will apply to the whole claim even if the personal injury claim forms only a small element of the whole action.
