At Kester Cunningham John we understand that people subjected to violence and assault need and deserve special care and understanding.  We are passionate about obtaining justice for our clients and helping them to get their lives back on track as rapidly as possible.  The CICA scheme has its challenges and limitations but we always strive for the best possible results for our clients.

We have been rated in the top tier for personal injury work by the national directories ‘Chambers’ and ‘Legal 500’ for over 10 years.  The Legal 500, 2008 said: “Kester Cunningham John has some excellent practitioners …. Simon Davis is helpful, efficient and sympathetic” while Hannah Rutterford and Ruth Booy are “exceptional, show absolute dedication and bring real focus”.  Chambers 2009 describes us as “… the go-to personal injury firm for many claimants in East Anglia … a regional leader in heavyweight catastrophic injury cases”.

KCJ is an East Anglian based firm, with offices in Cambridge in the south and Norwich in the north.  Our reputation has spread however and our injury clients are national and international as well as regional. The Spinal Injuries Association, Headway, the Limbless Association and the Child Brain Injury Trust are among the organisations that have appointed us to their panels.  Please contact us to see how we could help you.

For individual advice contact Ruth Booy, Simon Davis or Hannah Rutterford on 0800 616 299.  You can also contact them via our website at www.kcj.co.uk.

We can advise on likely awards and on appealing or reviewing inadequate awards. We always press for an early conclusion but also seek interim payments wherever necessary.

We want to do more than just hand you a cheque. We are here to help you recover as much quality of life as possible and can access the best providers of medical and therapeutic rehabilitation.  We offer:

  • A free informal initial chat about your case and will visit you at home or in hospital if appropriate.
  • A sympathetic and understanding ear
  • A commitment to getting the best possible result
  • A promise that you will never be out of pocket as we only charge if we win and the fees will only ever be a realistic proportion of the money we have recovered for you
  • Many years’ experience of sexual, spinal, brain and other complex injuries,  including fatal claims and claims for psychiatric injury.
