Rebecca Hearsey

Associate

Biography

I specialise in complex personal injury claims arising out of accidents and incidents on the roads. I have a particular interest in long term pain conditions and psychological and psychiatric responses to incidents, as well as cases involving head injury.

In addition, I deal with a large number of claims involving fatal accidents however they are caused.

As a special interest, I deal with cases involving animals, particularly large animals such as horses or livestock. This is a very particular area of law. 

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I spent a lot of time away from school as a child due to orthopaedic surgeries and found myself watching a programme called Crown Court, which inspired me to want to become a criminal barrister.  As I grew older and was able to gain experience, I wanted to help people who were in difficulties and found personal injury law very rewarding in that regard.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I am passionate about getting the best result I can for my clients and helping them through a strange and difficult process.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I am passionate about dressage and a member of British Dressage.

I am also governor of a school, Chair of Governors from September 2013. This is a job which is very rewarding and allows you to give back some of what you have been given, especially as I am a governor of a school I attended.
