Personal Injury

Members of chambers are instructed for both Claimants and Defendants from County Courts through to the Court of Appeal providing advisory, drafting and advocacy services.

Claimant work includes such areas as road traffic accidents, employers’ liability and other areas such as public liability and Animals Act claims. Members are instructed in cases from those on the Small Claims Track through to significant Multi Track claims including those arising out of catastrophic injuries.

Defendant work covers similar areas and values with instructions coming through a variety of insurer clients. Chambers also advise Jersey advocates in relation to claims including significant cases of catastrophic injuries.

Chambers benefit from a wide range of experience which includes not only personal injury claims, but  also dealing with inquests and Health and Safety prosecutions.

Members of chambers are regularly involved in ADR from including mediations and joint settlement meetings.

Members regularly lecture on civil procedure including topics directly relating to Personal Injury. Chambers have also lectured on the Jackson reforms and their impact.
