New book by Pankaj Madan

June 19, 2024

Pankaj Madan from Exchange Chambers has published his third book on serious injury claims.

‘A Practical Guide to Catastrophic Brain Injury Claims’ provides practical advice and reminders to lawyers dealing with catastrophic brain injuries.

It is published by Law Brief Publishing:

Pankaj’s latest book follows on from his previous two titles, ‘A Practical Guide to Subtle Brain Injury Claims’ published in 2016 and ‘A Practical Guide to Chronic Pain claims’ published in 2017.

Commenting on its launch, Pankaj Madan said:

“My new book can act as a reminder and easy references of the principal points for those who are more experienced and a pathfinder for those who are perhaps just setting out in this area of personal injury perhaps with their first case, finding their way being led in a team.”

“It may also prove useful to some medical and treating experts, case managers and other professionals who become involved with severely brain injured people. Finally, the book may help some of the families who have been affected by a member with severe traumatic brain injury to understand some of the principles at work affecting the claim.”

Pankaj Madan attended Leeds Grammar School and then Magdalene College, Cambridge where he read Law. He was called to the Bar in 1997.

He grew up within a medical family and is recommended by the Legal 500 for “his superb strategic approach to brain injury cases” and “a brilliant client manner”. He is praised for his “wealth of experience in subtle and catastrophic brain injury claims”.

Pankaj represents both Claimants and Defendants usually only in high value severe, life-changing or catastrophic injury cases. The latter usually involve brain injury claims.

He has an excellent understanding of medical issues. He is a member of the Royal Society of Medicine Pain Section Council, the first lawyer ever to be invited to sit, and has addressed two international conferences held at the Royal Society of Medicine.

Pankaj is routinely instructed nationally by leading firms. He is sought after by insurers and defence firms too and adopts a team approach with the insurer and Solicitor. He has been a Deputy District Judge for over 13 years and has considerable expertise in costs management of high value cases for both Claimants and Defendants.  He is experienced in claims of the utmost severity exceeding £20 million.
