All forms of maximum severity claims are regularly undertaken with a 65:35 split between Claimant and Defendant work. The majority are either accidents at work or RTA claims, often motorcyclists, for solicitors throughout England and Wales including the south coast and The Channel Islands.

Philip has a substantial disease practice including asbestos, bladder cancer, VWF/HAVS, deafness, fibromyalgia/chronic pain and others. Philip is recognised as having the greatest experience of perhaps all Counsel at the Bar in England and Wales in the field of vibration white finger, and has been involved in many of the leading cases.

All areas of clinical negligence have been covered over the past 30 years including hypoxic brain injury to babies resulting in an extensive involvement with neonatologists, paediatric neurologists, neuro-radiologists and obstetric experts. He works, on average, on 30 brain injury cases each year. 

Philip specialises in catastrophic injuries, in particular brain injuries, spinal injuries and amputees. His experience in this field has been described by a partner in one of the country’s leading solicitors as ‘second to none’.

He has been instructed by large specialist firms of solicitors in multiple numbers of cases including those involving acquired brain injury, spinal injuries and amputations together with complex orthopaedic and polytrauma injuries.
