Jason Evans-Tovey

Call 1990

“He is rigorous in his attention to detail and has very good judgement." "He is a very intelligent barrister, a powerful and subtle analytical thinker and a joy to work with."
(Chambers & Partners 2019)

Personal Injury

Jason has undertaken a great deal of personal injury work over more than 20 years including employers liability cases (Hammond v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis) [2005] PIQR P1 [2004] ICR 1467) and accidents abroad giving rise to jurisdictional and applicable law issues before the ECJ (Watson v First Choice Holidays & Flights Ltd [2001] 2 Lloyd’s Rep 339).

Nowadays because of the demands of other areas of his practice he deliberately limits himself principally to higher-value motor-related cases many of which involve detailed expert evidence on liability. Jason read science at university.
