Personal Injury & Clinical Negligence

Position

Andrew Lewis QC has vast experience in all areas of personal injury and clinical negligence work, having specialised in this field since joining the Bar. According to Chambers and Partners 2016, Andrew  “is exceptionally good. A modern, user-friendly silk who is very bright and very capable. He is an extremely able advocate with a very attractive way of getting a judge’s attention.”
He is a contributor to Butterworth’s Personal Injury Litigation Service.

Andrew’s personal-injury practice consists largely of fatal and catastrophic injury claims, particularly brain and spinal-cord injury cases. He is very experienced in work involving competing claims of exaggeration/fraud versus subtle brain injury/chronic pain/somatoform disorder.

In his employer’s liability work, Andrew will also become involved in conducting inquests and defending health & safety prosecutions.

Andrew Lewis QC offers vast experience in all areas of clinical negligence work. He works for claimants, the NHSLA and GPs, undertaking cases of all types up to the most serious cerebral palsy negligent-birth claims.

Andrew has dealt with a wide range of claims, with particular experience of accident & emergency and orthopaedic failures, obstetric claims (cerebral palsy/shoulder dystocia), paediatric cardiac surgery, delayed diagnosis of cancer, gastro-intestinal claims and failed cosmetic surgery.

Andrew’s work not only includes drafting, advising and court work but he attends a considerable number of joint settlement meetings and mediations in high-value claims.
His disease work is now largely based around asbestos-induced mesothelioma claims, and he works for claimant or defendant.
