Personal Injury law is one of the most ubiquitous areas of legal practice yet often forms no more than a tiny fraction of a student’s study of the law of Tort. This book is designed to provide the necessary background and information to take the reader from a standing start (whether law student, file handler, or litigant-in-person) to a level of understanding where they can run a claim with a real understanding of the underlying issues, the aims of such litigation and the issues which can arise. It provides a genuine touchstone for anybody involved in Personal Injury law, serving to remind them of what they are doing and why.


David Boyle read Law at Churchill College, Cambridge and has 21 years’ experience of Personal Injury work based at Deans Court Chambers in Manchester. He has a thriving practice across a broad spectrum of complex, high value, high profile and unusual Multi-Track claims, lectures at both undergraduate and postgraduate level and has been Head of Mini-Pupillage at Deans Court for 6 years.

Always approachable, he has a particular appreciation of the need for clients to understand their litigation, no matter what the complexities, and has a reputation for clarity and forensic rigour in both his written and oral advocacy. In 2015, the Legal 500 said that he “Provides tactically astute, detailed advice and is able to convey this simply.” He has carried that through to his writing, the critically acclaimed “On Experts” and this, his second book.

“He writes as he speaks: He surveys the territory with the advantage of a wealth of experience, richly leavened with a generous helping of personal anecdote, thereby combining authority with accessibility.” – Turner J
