Personal Injury Law

5 Essex Court has a thriving personal injury practice. The team is led by a specialist silk, Geoffrey Tattersall QC, and is supported by a strong contingent of junior counsel at all levels of experience.

Members of chambers appear for both claimants and defendants, and instructions are received from insurers, local authorities and the police, as well as from privately paying clients. A substantial amount of work is also carried out under conditional fee agreements.

Due to the strength in depth of our team at all levels of experience, we are able to cover the whole range of personal injury cases, from the most serious and complex multi-track claims to the simplest small track claims. We have extensive experience of advising on and appearing in personal injury claims arising out of accidents at work, product liability, defective premises, highway claims, holiday claims, and road traffic accidents.

Members of chambers frequently present seminars and write articles on personal injury law, and a regular update on the latest developments in this field can be found on our website.
