New to this Edition:
Criminal Injuries Compensation cases form an important part of Old Square Chambers’ work. Ben Collins QC is a leading expert on the law of criminal injuries compensation, having appeared in almost all of the major cases in the field in recent years, including JT (CA 2018 – same roof rule), A&B (CA 2018 – effect of convictions rule on trafficking victims), Y (CA 2017 –genetic disability as injury), Clifford (CA 2016 – approach to multiple minor injuries), CP (CA 2015 – whether excessive drinking in pregnancy is a crime), RS (CA, 2013 – nervous shock) and Jones (SC 2013 – meaning of “crime of violence”). Robert Moretto has also appeared in many reported criminal injuries cases. Members of Old Square Chambers frequently represent injured victims of crime, in particular where both civil and statutory compensation is in issue, together with routinely representing prison officers, police officers, hospital staff and other workers who are vulnerable to assault at work and are well placed to advise in respect of both statutory compensation and civil liability.
