Solicitor - Health & Injury




Languages Spoken



I am a Senior Associate Solicitor in the Injury Department, specialising in serious personal injury claims.

To be able to secure the best possible result on liability I will obtain all appropriate evidence, be it a Police Collision Report or workplace documents. Witness statements will be obtained from relevant witnesses. If required, I will instruct accident reconstruction engineers or health and safety engineers to provide expert evidence and I have worked with many of the leading expert witnesses in these areas.  I adopt a very thorough approach to my cases.

To be able to fully assess and understand my client’s injuries I will obtain and scrutinise all medical records. My regular involvement in serious injury cases over many years has meant that I have extensive knowledge of treatment and rehabilitation requirements, consultants and therapists, for physical injuries, mental health conditions, neurological injuries or involve conditions such as chronic pain.  I always fully consider a client’s rehabilitation needs, progress as far as possible and claim for future requirements where this is required.

Where a client’s injuries have impacted on their employment, I not only assess the loss of earnings and fringe benefits that have been incurred but also carefully consider whether a client’s future earnings and career have been compromised. If so, I fully prepare and calculate any claim. 

I have conducted many types of personal injury claims including:

  • motor cars, motorcycle and cycle road traffic accidents
  • Highways Act claims
  • workplace accidents
  • accidents in public places
  • repetitive strain injuries
  • workplace stress
  • carbon monoxide poisoning
  • product liability
  • brain injuries
  • spinal injuries
  • orthopaedic injuries
  • mental health
  • chronic pain.
