Overview

By their very nature, catastrophic injury claims are both complex and demanding. They involve strategic management and expert input from the very outset of each case, including the consideration of care and rehabilitation, case management, lifelong medical / therapeutic treatment, the use of multiple experts in various disciplines and complicated financial settlement structures often with Court of Protection involvement. They also require very sensitive handling, with injured claimants and their families facing the most challenging period of their lives.

At 9 Gough Chambers we have some of the leading specialists in the field of catastrophic injury work, regularly representing those who have suffered catastrophic birth injury, traumatic and acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation and serious orthopaedic or internal injuries. Our practitioners have been involved in many of the highest value and highest profile catastrophic injury cases before the courts, often attracting seven and eight figures awards of damages.

Our excellence in this area is consistently recognised and reflected in the Chambers and Partners and Legal 500 Guides. We are also responsible for a number of the leading publications in this field, including the APIL Guide to Catastrophic Injury Claims and relevant chapters in Kemp & Kemp and Butterworths Personal Injury Litigation Service.

Our members understand the importance of working as a team and never lose sight of the key requirement in all of these cases, namely to facilitate the best possible quality of life for those who have been grievously injured.
