Personal Injury


If you suffer a serious accident you need a serious injury specialist to fight your case. We have a dedicated team of serious injury experts with many years experience of helping victims of serious accidents in particular those with complex, multiple injury claims.

We act for clients locally, nationally and internationally in claims involving hundreds of thousands to millions of pounds in damages.

We understand the effects that a serious injury can have on your home, your working life and above all your finances. We will deal quickly, sympathetically and professionally with your serious injury claim making the process as straightforward as we can. Our aim is to get you the maximum compensation as quickly as we can.

We understand that if you have suffered a very serious, life changing injury there is a huge amount to cope with and fresh challenges every day. Over the years we have recovered tens of millions of pounds in compensation as a result of our thoroughness and imagination in terms of claiming every penny in losses and expenses to which our clients are entitled. Life changing injuries deserve life changing settlements.

We offer a highly specialised and highly personal service dealing with all aspects of your claim. If you need a personal injury trust so that you can continue to receive means tested benefits we can set that up. If you wish to buy and adapt a house we can deal with the legal aspects of that. If you are unable to manage your financial affairs as a result of your injuries we can act as a Court of Protection appointed deputy. If you have any legal expenses insurance your insurers will probably agree to pay for our services. Alternatively we can offer you a “no win, no fee” agreement with no hidden charges.

We offer free, no obligation, initial chats followed, if appropriate, by a home or hospital visit at a time that suits you.

You need specialist lawyers with a proven track record to deal with the complicated medical and legal issues which arise in these severe injury claims. Catastrophic injury claims that Hart Brown have successfully dealt with include:

  • £1.6 million damages for brain damage following a fall from a balcony
  • £1.6 million damages for spinal cord injuries caused by a road traffic accident
  • £1.2 million damages for brain damage following a fall from a ladder

Partner, Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence

Gerard Sanders

Gerard qualified with a large regional firm in 1991. Since 1995 he has specialised exclusively on claimant personal injury work. More recently he has focused on complex higher value clinical negligence and personal injury claims.

His greatest success has been winning the high profile case of Delaney-v-The Secretary of State for Transport where after almost 9 years of litigation involving two Court of Appeal hearings and an application to the Supreme Court he was finally able to establish that the Motor Insurers’ Bureau Agreement was incompatible with EEC law. As a direct result of the decision in this case the agreement has had to be amended to the benefit of many future victims of uninsured drivers.

Gerard is a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel and he appears in the latest Legal 500 rankings in the fields of personal injury and clinical negligence.

Gerard’s other professional qualifications include a Diplome D’Etudes Juridiques Francaises from Strasbourg University.
