Personal injury & clinical negligence

Road traffic accidents

Members of chambers deal with both Claimant and Defendant Road Traffic Accident claims.

As with other areas of personal injury claims, road traffic accident cases range from Fast Track through to Multi Track claims with some cases having gone to the Court of Appeal.  Road traffic accidents claims can and do produce significant claims such as brain and serious orthopaedic injury cases. Members have experience with a wide range of such claims including advising in the Channel Islands.

Issues such as liability and contributory negligence (such as seat belt and other issues) are familiar areas of practice. The range of cases includes simple collisions through to more complex cases including loss of control through road conditions through to impacts between unrestrained passengers.

Members are also familiar with insurance issues including those relating to uninsured and untraced drivers.
