Personal Injury

Position

Richard Gregory is an established personal injury and clinical negligence practitioner, with particular experience in claims involving catastrophic injuries.

Career

Richard has extensive experience of acting for Claimants and Defendants in the full range of personal injury claims including road traffic accidents (including those which give rise to issues under the MIB uninsured drivers’ agreements), employers’ liability claims, public liability claims and fatal accidents.

Richard accepts instructions on behalf of Claimants and Defendants, but his case load predominantly comprises claims brought on behalf of Claimants who have sustained serious life changing injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries at various levels, brachial plexus injuries and lower limb amputations. In addition, he is also instructed as Junior Counsel on numerous multi-million pound claims where the Claimant’s injuries have been of the utmost severity, some of which are listed for trials in the High Court in London in 2018.

Richard has built up a large amount of experience in the type of issues which are frequently encountered in catastrophic injury claims such as life expectancy issues, capacity issues, disputes about the appropriate placement and / or care regime, the use of specialist prosthetics or other equipment in order to try and maximise a Claimant’s independence, claims for hydrotherapy pools at home, issues in connection with the discount rate (including the impact of the current negative discount rate on accommodation claims), the use of periodical payment orders (including the use of reverse indemnities) and provisional damages.

Richard has successfully obtained large interim payments in accordance with the guidelines in Eeles v Cobham. He regularly conducts conferences with liability and medical experts, drafts Schedules of Loss, attends joint settlement meetings and has experience of claims where damages have been recovered which are equivalent to more than £12m on a lump sum basis.
