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.
"Throughout the process Rebecca was extremely patient with me and always took time to explain everything in language I could understand. This support always made me feel that someone was 'on my side' - which in itself relieved a great deal of pressure. Through her the outcome of the case more than exceeded my expectations; I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Rebecca to anyone."
"You have been so patient and caring with me, and your expertise in my care second to none - all very much appreciated. I feel very fortunate to have had you acting in my best interest. Thank you for everything."
"Rebecca Hearsey helped us through the long and difficult legal process following a serious road traffic accident. At all stages, she kept us informed and up-to-date with what was happening and explained the complicated legal procedure in a proficient, empathic and balanced way. She was understanding, considerate and always extremely professional."
