I am a partner in the Personal Injury department at Leigh Day. I have been a qualified solicitor since 1991 and have previously worked as a partner with another leading personal injury firm. I joined Leigh Day in 1997 and specialise in high value catastrophic injury claims including brain injuries.
I strongly believe that people should have access to lawyers with specialist expertise in dealing with their particular injury. It is vital that the right medical and legal team are on board from the beginning so that the injured person has access to the best support and guidance to enable them to have the best possible chance of recovery.
Some recent cases include:
- Acting on behalf of a minor who sustained multiple injuries including brain injury; the client had pre-existing learning difficulties which made assessment of the impact from the brain injury complicated.
- Acting on behalf of an adult who sustained a severe brain injury in an accident which occurred abroad, this included jurisdictional complications.
- Acting on behalf of a freelance writer and producer who sustained a severe brain injury, this involved a complex assessment of a loss of earnings claim.
I am a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL), a member of the Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers (PEOPIL) and an accredited member of the Law Society Personal Injury panel. I am also the co-author of the APIL Guide to Evidence published in March 2011.
