Members of Hailsham Chambers’ personal injury group represent claimants and defendants in claims arising from injuries at work, road-traffic accidents and catastrophic head and spinal injuries.
Claimant work: Having had a strong connection over many years with a number of unions, particularly the Royal College of Nursing, Hailsham Chambers’ members have represented injured nurses since 1987. In addition, counsel have always enjoyed a large volume of claimant work, previously funded through legal aid and now through conditional-fee agreement and private arrangements.
Defence work: Members of the Personal Injury Group have an equally strong connection with a number of the leading insurance companies. Chambers is on the Norwich Union panel for heavyweight cases and members represent them in the leading cases for spinal and head injuries.
Members of the Group contribute to the publication of the leading textbook in this field, Kemp and Kemp. The late Harvey McGregor CBE QC was the author of the leading textbook McGregor on Damages with contributions from two further members, Julian Picton QC and Martin Spencer QC.
