Our highly experienced Personal Injury team acts for a broad range of private and public sector clients including insurers, corporates, the police, prisons, government departments, and local authorities, as well as direct access clients. 

The strength in depth of our team at all levels of experience means we are able to cover the full spectrum of personal injury cases, from the most serious and complex multi-track claims to the simplest small track claims.

In addition, clients benefit from our team’s ability to draw on their expertise in other overlapping core areas of practice including employment, regulatory and human rights law.

Our Personal Injury team appears for both claimants and defendants and has significant experience advising on and appearing in a broad range of personal injury claims arising out of: 

  • Accidents at work
  • Product liability
  • Defective premises
  • Highway claims
  • Holiday claims
  • Road traffic accidents
  • Article 3 claims

Recent examples of the Personal Injury team’s work include a number of psychiatric injury claims on behalf of police forces; a £1m+ High Court trial stress at work claim; a £2m claim arising out of partial paraplegia; a multi-million pound claim arising out of brain injury and a £500k claim arising out of clinical negligence.
