I have nearly 30 years' experience acting for people injured through medical negligence and personal injury accidents. My cases include:
- Medical Negligence claims
- Personal Injury claims
- Work Accident claims
- Road Traffic Accidents claims
- International personal injury claims
Many of these claims involve serious head injuries or birth injuries and have settled for more than £1 million. This ensures my clients receive adequate compensation to pay for education, rehabilitation, care and treatment.
In 2018, my client, a severely disabled six-year-old boy, was awarded £37 million after contracting the Herpes Simplex in hospital, leading to catastrophic brain damage.
I regularly speak at events including the RoadPeace and BISWG (Brain Injury Social Work Group) conferences. I have also contributed a chapter to the well-received Experts in the Civil Courts edited by Sir Louis Blom Cooper QC.
I am a member of AvMA (Action against Medical Accidents), the Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel, the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL), and a Fellow of the Society for Advanced Legal Studies.
I was named Lawyer of the Year 2023 for Clinical Negligence, London in The Best Lawyers in the UK awards.
