A Barrister is a type of legal professional who specialises in representing clients in court, and giving legal advice on specific areas of law.

Barristers are considered to be experts in litigation and advocacy, and they are typically retained by solicitors to represent their clients in court.

In the context of a personal injury claim, a barrister may be instructed to represent you in court, if the claim the matter goes to court. The Barrister will work closely with your personal injury solicitor and advise you on court procedures and strategies. They may also be responsible for presenting your case in court, cross-examining witnesses and making legal arguments to the judge.

Note that only around 2% of personal injury claims go to court.

Generally, only very complex cases or those where liability cannot be resolved, end in personal injury court proceedings. Quittance’s solicitor panel settles the vast majority of claims are settled out of court.
