Industrial disease.


Andy is head of the industrial disease team and is responsible for marketing, supervision and training. He has run a number of ground-breaking mesothelioma and asbestos disease cases. These have included a reported High Court decision clarifying the position regarding disposal of tissue samples in a lung cancer/asbestosis case and settling a case after trial but before judgment was given which extended the scope of Chandler v Cape to visitors and obtained compensation for low level exposure between 1958 and 1960. Andy is also a Trustee of Headway Preston and Chorley and runs a caseload of challenging brain and spinal injury cases. In one year alone he settled three cases transferred to him from other solicitors for a total of £13.4m, including a £6.65m lump sum award for an SCI injured paraplegic patient. He is committed to ensuring that his clients receive the very best early rehabilitation and support and obtain the maximum possible settlement. He works closely with the Child Brain Injury Trust and is the firm’s appointed representative for Headway and the Spinal Injuries Association.
