Rob Weir QC starts 2 year term as PIBA Chair

On 9 April 2016, Rob Weir QC was elected as the Personal Injuries Bar Association Chair.  

At the recent PIBA residential annual conference, Rob referred to the challenges that lie ahead for the PI Bar, especially for those at the junior end. PIBA will have its hands full responding to the current proposals for change, not least those relating to:

  • increasing the range and value of cases caught by fixed fee regimes
  • raising the small claims track limit
  • abolishing the right to recover general damages for modest whiplash injuries and
  • making fundamental structural changes to the civil justice system, as recommended by Briggs LJ.
