Work Department

Personal injury.


Partner in the personal injury department specialising in catastrophic injury claims. Has a particular interest in brain injury, amputation, serious orthopaedic injury and fatal accident claims. Jason takes a tough stance on behalf of his clients, using his considerable skill and knowledge to drive an appropriate settlement. Heavily involved in training and supervision of junior lawyers to ensure they receive a solid grounding in personal injury law.

Willing to consider difficult or complex cases. Recent success stories include a settlement of £1.275million for a motorcyclist who suffered a severe brachial plexus injury when knocked off his motorbike on the way to work, £1million for a client who was knocked off her pedal bike resulting in a below knee amputation and £750,000 for a client who eventually had to have a below knee amputation following an accident in November 2011.

A clear marker of Jason’s ability and skill is the consistently high level of referrals he receives via word of mouth. Numerous amputation, fibromyalgia and head injury clients have all either been referred to him directly by previous clients for whom he has acted, or via case studies on the JMW website. 

Other notable successes include; a fibromyalgia case settlement for £290,000, in which the defendant’s representative made an initial offer to settle of £25,000; a £400,000 compensation award for a client who suffered multiple severe injuries in a road traffic accident, £350,000 for a client who suffered a serious wrist injury after falling from a mobile scaffold at work and £525,000 for the widow and dependents of a man who was killed after being knocked off his bicycle on his way to work.

Jason’s ongoing caseload is proving just as robust, with a wide-ranging set of claims, including several worth £1million plus.
