Fiona Ashworth Assists Baroness Elizabeth Berridge
Fiona Ashworth is delighted to have been of assistance to Baroness Elizabeth Berridge in her research for her House of Lords speech on the Civil Liability Bill 24th April 2018.
`My Lords, it is a pleasure to go down memory lane to the nine years I spent as a personal injury and licensing barrister at Kings Chambers in Manchester. During my time as a junior barrister, dealing with road traffic accidents seemed to be compulsory basic training, rather akin to the traffic list in a magistrates’ court for the criminal Bar of this era. I should state that I was a member of the PIBA, and I am grateful for its briefing, as well as the advice of the now head of the personal injury department at my old chambers, who happens to be my former pupil mistress, Fiona Ashworth.`
