David is a founding partner at Barratts with nearly 30 years’ experience helping clients with even the most complex brain and spinal injuries to achieve their full potential. Independent legal guides (Legal 500 and Chambers) both recognise him as a leading lawyer for personal injury claims. The firm was set up to offer clients the best independent legal advice, with a dedicated specialist to ease them through the stress of litigation; David continues to believe that clients with complex injuries deserve to have only experienced lawyers handling their cases.
David believes that early rehabilitation is key to a client’s recovery. Taking active steps to help clients with discharge from hospital and setting up care regimes is far more important than compensation, although there is no getting away from the fact that compensation does secure the best possible quality of life for a client’s future.
All clients are reassured that, by only having an experienced lawyer, they will recover the maximum compensation for their future. David has personally secured over £50 million for clients, as well as ensuring that early payments are made whenever possible. He works closely with specialist doctors and therapists as well as architects, to maximize the client’s quality of life and home environment. His expertise in Brain and Spinal Injury enables him to seek the latest innovations and equipment to help clients.
David is a Fellow of APIL (the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) which is only granted to lawyers with many years personal injury experience. Until recently he was Secretary of APIL’s Spinal Cord Injury Group and continues to be involved with the group.
David is pleased to say that whilst many firms are now beholden to shareholders or have become large corporations, his ethos for setting up Barratts continues as strongly as ever. He ensures that Barratts have the time and experience to offer clients practical and informed advice; this means clients always have someone at the end of a phone who knows about their case and Barratts personally deliver results without clients having to deal with a large team of people.
Barratts continued top tier ranking in the independent legal guides confirms their status as the leading firm to turn to for all personal injury and clinical negligence claims.
