Deans Court Chambers (Chambers of Tim Horlock QC)

Position

Paul Higgins has developed a formidable reputation for Defendant work in personal injuries, dealing with a wide range: road traffic, public liability, industrial accidents and industrial disease. His practice encompasses the whole spectrum, up to and including catastrophic injuries valued in excess of £6m. His caseload is such that he will ordinarily accept instructions in multi-track claims only, or where there is a point of substance or complexity justifying the instruction of senior counsel. He is particularly instructed where complicated issues of liability arise, or where discreet items of loss in a catastrophic injury claim require detailed analysis. He has a firm but fair manner in negotiations and has a robust approach to advocacy in the event that a claim is pursued beyond its reasonable limits.
