An independent panel of experts judge the Personal Injury Awards every year

The Personal Injury Awards is judged by an independent panel of experts—who give their free time to assess entries—chosen for their expertise, experience and positions in personal injury.

Previous judges represented organisations and associations such as the Institute of Registered Case Managers, Association of Consumer Support Organisations, the Motor Accident Solicitors Society, the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, the Society of Clinical Injury Lawyers, the Brain Injury Social Work Group and the British Association of Brain Injury Case Managers.

The 2022 judging panel will be confirmed soon.
