Defence to actions
I am a Senior Litigation Executive in the Dispute Resolution Department. I have been dealing with personal injury actions for Claimants for over 22 years. I specialise in personal injury cases, including cases of catastrophic injury, injuries of utmost severity, employer liability, road traffic accidents and public liability cases. I also specialise in medical and dental negligence matters.
I have extensive experience in dealing with all manner of cases from minor low value road traffic accident cases to cases involving catastrophic injury, brain injury and injuries of the utmost severity. I have recovered tens of millions of pounds in compensation for my clients, taking great pride in attention to detail, client care and bring a technical ability of the highest level to each case.
I have books and reference materials written on cases I have conducted. I have assisted the Health and Safety Executive in lectures and presentations on cases I have conducted in co-operation with them.
I have been the conducting lawyer for several cases which have been used in national test cases, which settled successfully. My cases have received national press coverage, and I have provided expert commentary on legal issues on local BBC broadcasts.
