Position

Specialises in Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury work. He has wide-ranging experience across both these fields, and acts for a mix of Claimant and Defendant clients. Much of his work involves catastrophic brain and spinal injuries as well as fatal accident claims.

In the Clinical Negligence field, he is frequently instructed in cases involving complex liability issues and high value quantum, including claims arising from birth injury resulting in cerebral palsy and from other neurological injury.

He has extensive experience of multi-party litigation, having acted in the claims arising out of the misdiagnosis and mistreatment of epilepsy at Leicester Royal Infirmary during the 1990s. He was closely involved in the successful ADR process devised to manage the several hundred claims which were brought.

He has a particular specialism in equine and other animal related litigation, including claims under the Animals Act 1971, where his expertise in this area can bring a real benefit. He is the author of the Liability for Animals section in the Westlaw Insight service and is a legally qualified chair for British Equestrian Federation panels.

Other aspects of his practice include representation at Inquests and Professional Negligence claims arising out of the conduct of personal injury and clinical negligence litigation.
