Personal Injury

Position

Joe is a personal injury solicitor at Slater and Gordon's Cambridge office.

His superb eye for detail gives him the edge when handling difficult liability cases.

He excels at working on high-value and complex claims, and has handled actions for clients suffering from serious brain and orthopaedic injuries.

He understands the physical, emotional, relationship and financial difficulties that injured clients routinely face following accidents.

As such, he approaches cases with sensitivity and takes time to translate legalese to make the process understandable and less daunting.

Career

Joe began his legal career at Taylor Vinters LLP in 2006 and has been with Slater and Gordon since 2013.

Slater and Gordon  in Cambridge 'gives a very good service to its clients; the lawyers are diligent in their investigations, go to great lengths to pursue claims and make things as easy as possible for the client'. The firm runs a multi-track practice handling complex, multimillion-pound brain and spinal injury claims; military claims; Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) matters; fatal accident and repetitive strain injury claims; and second opinion cases for clients seeking new legal input into existing claims. The firm has numerous panel appointments including Child Brain Injury Trust, Limbless Association, Headway and Spinal Injuries Association. It has a deep bench of talent that includes Paul Tapner (who is ‘a good tactician who is also extremely experienced‘); military claims expert Richard Gaffney;  Andrew Zajac who handles complex and high-value brain and spinal injury claims and is 'a tough negotiator who handles cases with great skill'; and Angela Beric, who is ‘experienced and pragmatic and works tirelessly and effectively on behalf of her clients’. One client notes that Beric ‘has a high level of knowledge in the area of complex brain injury – with children and adults – and is extremely thorough in her work‘. The office also has a strong associate team in Crystal Eaton, Mick Upton and Joe Speed. A key highlight saw Tapner act for a claimant who died as a result of a defective tumble dryer which caused a house fire. He obtained formal admission of liability from the manufacturer and the case is now being valued.
