Rawlinson QC, Michael
Michael Rawlinson QC is head of the personal injury and clinical negligence teams within Chambers.
His extensive practice encompasses most aspects of personal injury whether caused by a discrete accident or the insidious onset of disease arising from environmental or industrial agents. His practice centres on spinal and brain injuries and the infliction of cancer.
He defends as much as he claims but when claiming adopts a relatively adventurous stance in respect to accepting claims funded by ATE insurance. He has been involved in litigation that has either been outright ‘test’ litigation (Fairchild & The Pleural Plaques Test Litigation) or has had ramifications far beyond the individual parties concerned (Sowden v Lodge; The Nimrod Inquest,and so on).
