Personal Injury

Juliet has a busy personal injury practice, acting both for claimants and defendants. She is instructed as sole counsel in high value claims, and regularly fights matters to trial.

She is instructed in matters which cover the breadth of Personal Injury:

  • Psychiatric injury claims, including ‘stress at work’ and secondary victim claims.
  • Road traffic accident claims, including cycling accidents, accidents abroad, actions brought against highway authorities and fatal accident claims.
  • Employers’ liability claims, arising from accidents in industry, within schools for children with challenging behaviours and involving staff at psychiatric units.
  • Public liability claims, including anaphylactic shock claims, school and school trip claims, holiday resorts claims, accidents in public playgrounds/gyms and during domestic building works.
  • Part 20 claims against NHS Trusts and individual medical practitioners, in which it is alleged that subsequent negligent medical care compounded loss and damage suffered as a result of an index accident.
  • Occupiers’ liability claims, including claims arising from accidents in outdoor premises and claims involving contractors.

Juliet is also regularly instructed as junior counsel.
