Peter E Quegan QVRM TD

Civil Litigation

Peter's general civil practice includes contract disputes, product liability and professional negligence.

Personal Injury
A solicitor from 1991 to 2010, Peter spent the last 15 years handling fatal and serious personal injury cases, much of the work being motorcycle-related.  This naturally included a considerable number of credit hire matters, both motor car and motorcycle.  He also cultivated a special niche in personal injury claims for military personnel and conducted a number of serious clinical negligence cases.  Since coming to the Bar, Peter's personal injury practice has broadened to include public, occupiers and employers liability.

Industrial Disease
Peter undertakes a range of industrial disease work, predominantly noise induced hearing loss together with work related upper limb disorders and hand arm vibration syndrome. He has a particular interest in limitation issues as they relate to such conditions and presented a lecture upon the subject on Limitation in Noise Induced Hearing Loss in Kenworthy's 2015 lecture series.

Credit Hire
Peter has had a long interest in credit hire, going all the way back to the cases of Dimond v Lovell in 2000, when as a solicitor many of his motorcycle courier clients used credit bikes to get back to work. Since coming to the Bar he has regularly represented both claimants and defendants in credit hire disputes, often of significant value, although almost always now in car and taxi cases.
