Rebecca Hearsey

Senior Associate


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.

Client Testimonials

"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."

    Rebecca, Elliott, Lewis and Darcey have been left devastated by Miles Byrne’s reckless actions. “While the outcome cannot begin to undo the damage Byrne has caused, we hope the sentence serves as a lesson to others of the tragic and far-reaching consequences of dangerous driving. "The family are grateful to Central Motorway Police Group at West Midlands Police for its work in investigating this incident as well as pursuing the prosecution for the offence of causing death by dangerous driving. “We are now working to help Rebecca provide for her children’s future as they attempt to come to terms with the heartache they have experienced.”

    Husband’s Dismay After Careless Driver Who Left Vibrant Wife Severely-Brain Injured Walks Free From Court With A Fine

    “Five months after the accident which almost claimed her life, Deborah was allowed to return home but only if she wore a padded helmet to protect her fragile skull. “Every day remains a struggle for her. And her life now will be constantly punctuated by hospital appointments, therapy, carers and rehabilitation. The driver’s sentence does not reflect the severity of what happened and it is easy to see why Steve and his family are so dismayed that the punishment simply does not fit the crime. “While the sentence ultimately can’t do anything to change what has happened to Deborah, Steve and his family feel that it also does nothing to encourage drivers to exercise greater caution behind the wheel. He hopes that releasing photos of Deborah before and after the crash will instead serve as a warning to drivers that their actions can have catastrophic consequences.”
