Personal Injury & Clinical Negligence

Acting on behalf of both claimants and defendants, our personal injury and clinical negligence team is consistently ranked highly by The Legal 500 and Chambers UK.

The team has extensive experience of handling cases for individuals, major trade unions, insurers and large employers alike.

The scope of the work undertaken by the team includes claims dealing with all types of injuries, from minor whiplash to catastrophic head and spinal injuries, whether sustained in road traffic accidents or otherwise due to another’s negligence. Our members regularly deal with claims involving industrial diseases, fatal accident litigation and inquests, psychiatric illness arising from trauma and stress at work, employers' liability, occupiers' liability and product liability matters. We also cover all aspects of clinical negligence claims including medical and dental neglect.

Representation is provided at all levels of experience and seniority in the civil courts, in coroners’ courts and before the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority and other tribunals. Members of the team also receive instructions in health and safety matters in the criminal courts and accept instructions in suitable cases from lay clients under the Bar Council's Public Access Scheme.
