Jamie Gamble - Personal Injury

Jamie practices exclusively in the areas of personal injury and clinical negligence, specialising in cases of serious injury.  

He is consistently ranked as a leading barrister for personal injury in both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners, having been described therein as “a great all-round barrister” who is “fiercely intellectual and has a very analytical brain”, “good with clients” and “a very safe pair of hands”.

Jamie has extensive experience of all areas of personal injury practice, including the following areas:

  • Cases involving serious brain injury, including a number of ongoing cases of traumatic brain injury arising out of road traffic accidents, and an accident at work leading to subarachnoid haemorrhage and stroke.
  • Cases involving serious spinal injury, in relation to which he has been praised by Chambers UK 2017 (“particularly knowledgeable in spinal injury”).
  • Amputation cases, including an ongoing case of below knee amputation following an accident at work with a potential value in excess of £1 million, and a claim for above knee amputation following a motorcycle accident (with Leading Counsel) which settled at a roundtable meeting for £1.6 million and
  • Fatal accidents and claims for lost years.
  • Employers liability and disease claims, including those involving mesothelioma and other conditions caused by exposure to asbestos.
  • Road traffic accidents, including experience of cross-examining accident reconstruction experts at trial.
  • Public liability.
  • Claims involving allegations of fraud. 
  • Complex interlocutory hearing and procedural issues.
  • Applications to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
  • Appeals of CRU certificates.
  • Coroner’s Inquests.
