Public Access – Personal Injury
If you have had an accident that is not your fault and you wish to make a personal injury claim, our barristers can advise you on the prospects of succeeding in your claim.
Timescales for our services may vary depending on factors such as barristers’ availability, the complexity of your case and the need for additional documents. As a guide, written advice in your case will be available within two to four weeks where possible.
The only Personal Injury work currently undertaken by the team is with regard to providing second opinions for the purposes of re-instating Legal Expenses Insurance
We charge fixed fees, which means that we will charge you a set amount of money for the work. These fees will be payable before written work is provided or a hearing/ conference commences.
Below we provide estimates based on the ranges of fixed fees for barristers in Queen Square Chambers. VAT will be charged on top of these fees (where applicable)
Your fixed fees may vary depending on your needs – for example, your fees may be towards the higher end of the range if you need a more experienced barrister and/or you have a complex case. If you have a particularly complex case or it has an unusually high volume of paperwork, your fees may also be higher than the estimates below.
If the value of the claim is over £25k or the Trial is listed for more than one day please contact the clerks.
