Overview

The barristers at 9 Gough Chambers are well-versed in the complexities of personal injury claims involving accidents that occur out of the jurisdiction including those that happen at sea, on flights or on holidays. The team regularly advises and drafts pleadings in cases involving:

  • The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992.
  • The Montreal Convention (applying to carriage of passengers by air).
  • The Athens convention (applying to carriage of passengers by sea).
  • Disputes as to jurisdiction (including Brussels Convention, Rome I and Rome II).

The breadth of the Personal Injury team’s expertise means that members of our Marine Accidents team are also able to assist in cases falling within the jurisdiction of the Admiralty Court.

Recent cases include probably one of the largest personal injury awards ever in the English courts for a severely brain injured teenager who was on struck by a motorcycle whilst holidaying in Monaco.
