James Hastie

Year of Call 2004        

Since calling James has developed a busy reparation practice acting for both pursuers and defenders (mainly local authorities) in accident and industrial disease claims. In reparation terms he has appeared mainly in the Court of Session.

While reparation forms the mainstay of James' practice he continues to be instructed in other areas including professional negligence claims, medical and clinical negligence claims, conveyancing and property disputes (servitudes, boundary disputes and actions of division and sale), commercial matters and wills and executries. In these matters he has appeared both in the Sheriff Court (and before the Sheriff Principal) and in the Court of Session.

Campbell v Elliot Group 2009 - successfully pursuing a claim for injury at work where the pursuer injured his knee in a fall in his employer's works yard;

Sinclair v Morrison and another 2009 - successfully defending a claim for an uninsured developer in respect of a claim by a lorry driver for damages when a load being unloaded at a development site fell on him;

Nugent v Glasgow City Council 2009 - acting as junior in the successful defence of a tripping case against a local authority;

McDougall v Emtec Limited 2012 –unsuccessfully pursuing claim where a plumber alleged cramped working conditions resulted in the onset of neck pain
