The St Johns Buildings’ Catastrophic Injury Unit is a specialist unit of barristers providing expert advice and representation for specialist solicitors in serious injury claims, in particular in brain/head injuries, spinal injuries and amputees as well as complex orthopaedic and polytrauma injuries.
We act for Claimants and Defendants, often recovering seven figure sums for the former and saving substantial amounts for the latter with firm but realistic representation.
All the leading experts, medical and non-medical, work closely and regularly with members of this unit.
The balanced practices are acknowledged as a benefit to both Claimants and Defendants alike.
