Magdalen Chambers has an experienced team of specialist barristers acting on behalf of Claimants and Defendants in all aspects of personal injury and clinical negligence litigation. The team conducts a wide ranging case load, which includes serious and complex physical and psychiatric injuries, fatal accidents as well as more minor cases.
Although chambers is on the Western Circuit members of the team regularly appear in the London and South Eastern Circuit courts and also appear in courts on other circuits further afield.
Members take pride in the quality of representation that they provide to both the professional and lay client. This means that in addition to having a thorough and detailed understanding of the legal, clinical and tactical issues involved in a case, members do not lose sight of the principal aim to achieve the best result possible for a client at a proportionate cost.
The areas of work covered by the team includes:
- Employer’s Liability, Occupational Stress and Industrial Disease
- Fatal Accidents
- Road Traffic Accidents
- Highway Tripping and Public Liability
- Product liability and Holiday claims
- Occupier’s Liability
- Claims arising from sexual abuse
- Injuries caused by or to animals
- Surgical negligence
- Negligence of GPs, Ambulance and Nursing Staff
- Insurance/Indemnity cases
- Costs, including costs management.
Members frequently act under conditional fee agreements and where it is appropriate to act on such a basis, members will agree terms based on the standard terms agreed by PIBA.
The team is expertly supported by an experienced clerking team, who are always happy to answer any query as to suitable counsel and give fees estimates.
