Personal injury overview
Our clients demand, and are entitled to expect, expertise, tactical insight and commercial awareness from their chosen barrister. The Gatehouse Chambers Personal injury team encompasses directory-recognised specialists with experience in handling matters from the most prosaic, to complex High Court and Appellate matters concerning brain injury, spinal injury and loss of limb catastrophic claims. We act in broadly equal measure for claimants and insurers concerning accidents and fatal injuries in this jurisdiction and abroad.
Personal Injury claims invariably require expertise outside familiarity with the trial process itself. Members of the team have been instructed to Appellate level on related procedural and costs matters – whether that be the complexities of the Protocol, procedural defaults, the finer details of QOCS or arguments concerning revisions to costs budgets.
Members of the team are familiar with advocacy before mediators and the tactics of ADR; and can call upon their own experiences of sitting in a judicial capacity and as qualified mediators and arbitrators (see ADR Hub).
