About the Author
The author of this guide is Julian Benson, a highly regarded specialist barrister with over 20 years experience. He specialises in cases which concern personal injuries and fatal accidents, and works on behalf of injured individuals and defendants/insurers. Julian is based at Guildhall Chambers, a set of barrister’s chambers, in Bristol. Barristers are lawyers who perform a range of specialist roles in injury claims (the different types of lawyers and their roles are fully explained in the guide). In 2011, Guildhall Chambers was voted Chambers of the Year in the British Legal Awards by the influential legal news publication Legal Week and Regional Chambers of the Year by the prestigious independent legal directory Chambers & Partners. Julian's website - www.abarristersguide.org.uk - includes more information about Julian together with recommendations from clients, independent legal directories and solicitors.

Julian Benson has a clear and accessible writing style, setting out complicated legal issues concisely and simply. Reading the book has helped me to feel in control of my situation, and I know that I will continue to refer to it as the case progresses. I feel equipped to have sensible and informed conversations with my solicitor and am less intimidated by the machinery of the legal system grinding along around me!
The sections on choosing a solicitor and when you should consider changing solicitors are particularly useful as it can feel difficult to challenge a solicitor who you may feel is underservicing your claim. The book provides a very helpful list of questions to ask any potential legal firm before you sign on with them which I especially recommend if you're planning to use one of the huge personal injury firms that advertise on TV.
Buy this book if you (or someone you know) are in the sad position of having to undertake a personal injury claim. It's not nice when you've been hurt badly enough to need to claim, but at least by reading this book you can feel better informed about choosing the right solicitor, the processes you need to go through, possible outcomes and how the claim will be managed.
Julian Benson clearly explains not only the claims process but also provides a 'behind the scenes' look at the personnel involved and what a claimant should expect from them. Frankly, it will be invaluable to anybody bringing a personal injury claim.
