Welcome to PIBA
PIBA is the specialist bar association for barristers who practise in the field of personal injuries.
The aims of PIBA are to provide a forum for discussion on matters of common concern and interest to our members; to ascertain and represent the views of members on matters affecting their professional interests; and to further the study, understanding and development of the law relating to personal injuries. Please contact Jo Davies, PIBA Administrator for further information. You can also follow us on Twitter (@PIBarAssoc).

The Court of Appeal has handed down its much-anticipated judgment in Swift v Carpenter this morning, in respect of accommodation capital costs and the Roberts v Johnstone principle.
PIBA intervened in the appeal to try to ensure that the Court considered as many possible factual situations as possible, as many potential outcomes as possible, and that a decision of principle might be delivered which can be applied in other cases.
We are hugely grateful to Darryl Allen QC (former PIBA Chair) and Richard Whitehall, who appeared for us pro bono on the appeal. And to Simpson Millar who acted as our solicitors on the same basis.
They will both be speaking on a Webinar - for PIBA members and their pupils only - at 4pm on Wednesday next week, 14th October. Details of how to join that webinar will be published on the PIBA web page here.
