Kim Chamberlain is a director who has worked in the field of personal injury litigation for over 22 years. She is an expert in serious personal injury with significant experience in complex brain injury, spinal injuries, maximum award CICA cases, assaults and high-value cases.
Kim is highly experienced in County Court and High Court litigation representing claimants in complex liability and quantum disputes arising from road traffic accidents, sporting injuries, cycling accidents, accidents at work and public liability matters.
Kim has a particular interest in high-value sporting accidents and injuries including:
- £5.5m settlement involving a minor who sustained a severe brain injury while competing in a power boating competition, involving complex litigation on liability and quantum issues against multiple defendants to include an unincorporated association and its regulatory body.
- Representing numerous cyclists involved in RTAs.
- A product liability case against a well-known motorbike manufacturer, following serious injuries sustained on a track day.
Her interest extends to acquired brain injuries, serious orthopaedic and spinal injuries in football, rugby, hockey and competitive cycling – with the ability to apply her knowledge and expertise to many other sporting disciplines.
She works as a part of a dedicated and specialised team who are often involved in take over cases from others firms. Her team often achieves substantially higher awards, providing expert knowledge and advice and a bespoke service to her clients.
She works with multidisciplinary teams of medical and non-medical experts to support her clients and their families who often have long-term care and rehabilitation needs. Kim and her team ensure that they consistently deliver the highest standard of client care and guarantee the best possible outcome for their clients.
Kim is taking on the challenge of all challenges by running 1,084 miles for Silverlining, the brain injury charity. She is completing the gruelling 1,084-mile trek in her home county of Wiltshire and is virtually visiting all the iconic landmarks along the way including Stonehenge and Edinburgh Castle. Kim is a very keen runner and has set her sights on the ambitious target of completing the challenge in just six months and raising £3,000 for Silverlining, a charity close to her heart.
Kim achieved a substantial award in a claim against a local council where previous solicitors had indicated that there were no prospects and closed their file.
“Kim has acted in a total professional manner throughout. Her thoroughness and attention to detail are second to none. Her communication has been impeccable and I cannot praise her enough”.
