Ed Myers has spent over 30 years protecting the rights of injured people and is a specialist in severe and complex personal injury claims, including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fatal accidents and industrial diseases. He is regularly involved in cases in the High Court, Court of Appeal, Coroners Inquests, and Criminal Injuries Compensation Tribunals.
As Barratt’s lead solicitor on Headway’s approved list, his depth of knowledge means that clients receive early specialist advice about their case, including the importance of early payments to help clients with housing, equipment and rehabilitation. Ed has represented many individuals injured in high profile incidents such as the Marchioness Disaster, the Soho Pub Bombings, and the London Transport attacks and his work has involved helping people who have been in accidents throughout the world (“cross-border claims”).
Ed is a fellow of the College of Personal Injury Law, and is one of a very few individuals nationwide who hold both brain injury and spinal cord injury specialists status with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL). He is recommended in the Directory of Legal Experts and the Good Lawyer publications and for a number of years was Deputy Editor of the Journal of Personal Injury Litigation.
He is recommended in the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners Guide which praise him for his “strong focus on clients, with genuine compassion and commitment, as well as legal expertise”. Ed is noted for his specialist work in brain and spinal cord injury claims as well as in CICA cases and sources enthuse: “He is a fantastic personal injury lawyer, very experienced and hugely wise. He knows what works and what doesn’t.”
Ed is named in Legal 500 as a “leading individual” in “one of the best” firms “in the country” and is Chair of the Trustees of the local Headway group (Headway Nottingham) which gives invaluable insight into the impact of head injury from a different perspective to his legal work
