Adding Insult to Injury

A rough guide to personal injury and clinical negligence litigation (and how it goes wrong) for professional indemnity lawyers

Professional Negligence claims against solicitors for mismanaged personal or medical injury litigation bring a number of challenges for the Professional Negligence specialist, as the process and approach in such claims is often unfamiliar.  Hailsham Chambers, with its established, market-leading reputation across both areas, is in a unique position to assist.

With this in mind, we have launched a new series of insight articles which will explore the quirks and vagaries of Personal and Medical Injury litigation.

Overview – This first issue, by Richard Beaty, provides an overview of where and why Professional Negligence claims in this area might arise.

Expert Evidence – The second issue, by Nicholas Pilsbury, considers which expert to instruct and when, coordinating and assessing expert evidence and funding.
