Our Personal Injury Team

Our personal injury team includes barristers with various levels of experience and is able to handle cases ranging from simpler, fast track matters to injuries of the utmost severity.

We understand the impact an injury can have financially, as well as personally, and aim to work quickly and efficiently with clients, their solicitors and their families to establish liability and gain intermediate compensation, pending a final settlement.

The team has extensive experience of dealing with cases in the following areas:-

  • CICA
  • Credit Hire
  • Employer’s liability
  • Fatal accidents
  • Fraud
  • Group Litigation
  • Industrial disease
  • Product Liability

  • Travel cases

Here are some examples of our work:-

  • Wastell v Chaucer Insurance ServicesRichard Furniss for the claimant. Claimant was on motorcycle which collided with negligent pedestrian. Claimant seriously injured, a pedestrian killed.

  • AW v (1) JS (2) Direct Line - Richard Gregory was instructed on behalf of the Claimant who sustained a traumatic brain injury in a road traffic accident, leaving him with residual neurocognitive deficits and psychiatric symptoms.
