Personal Injury

Acting for both Claimant and Defendant’s our barristers have the requisite expertise to advise and represent their client who have suffered personal injury arising from an accident at home or work, road traffic accident, employers’ liability, birth injury, brain injury, industrial disease and other areas such as public liability and Animals Act claims.

Our barristers advise and offer representation in all courts throughout the UK covering modest injury small claims through to fast track and multi-track claims involving catastrophic injury matters.

Public Access – Personal Injury Claims

If you have had an accident which was not your fault and you wish to make a personal injury claim, our barristers can advise and represent you.


Timescales for your claim may vary depending on factors such as barristers’ availability, the complexity of your claim, the need for additional documents and the other side’s approach. However, more straightforward cases will ideally settle within six months of a claim being made. If a trial is required, as a guide the courts tend to have a hearing date within two years of a claim being made.

Additional costs

If required, travel and hotel expenses are charged at cost and included within the fixed fee unless stated.

Below we provide estimates based on the ranges of fixed fees for barristers at Quartz Barristers Chambers.
