I am a solicitor specialising in international personal injury as well as domestic illness. I manage a team in the Birmingham office which primarily deals with group actions against UK-based tour operators.
From a young age I have wanted to pursue a career which was both challenging and rewarding. As I enjoy debating matters, a career in law was the natural choice.
Being able to achieve the best possible outcome for an individual whose life has been adversely affected through no fault of their own.
Knowing that I am working with one of the top twenty national law firms in England and Wales whose reputation in the field of personal injury is second to none.
I have a new found love for landscape photography, so I now spend a lot of time at weekends in the Peak District as well as the Lake District.
“The illness Kirsty suffered during and after her trip to the Dominican Republic has obviously been extremely difficult for her to deal with. The terrible symptoms continue to impact her and she is understandably frustrated that the problems she is suffering are likely to be linked to the illness she developed at the Riu Bambu resort.
“The last thing Kirsty expected when she booked the holiday was to be admitted to hospital as soon as she returned home. She has told us of a number of hygiene concerns she has about the resort and we have launched an investigation into the hygiene practices in place at the time of her stay.
“Kirsty is not the only person to contact us about these issues and we currently represent other holidaymakers who suffered similar problems after staying at the resort.
“We would urge anyone else who suffered with illness or encountered similar problems during their stay at the resort to contact us as they may be able to help with our investigations.”
“Liam and Dannie should have been having the time of their lives, but this holiday was memorable for all the wrong reasons.
"We have seen first-hand the significant effects that gastric illness can have on our clients, demonstrating how those affected often require medical treatment and a prolonged period of recovery which disrupts their lives personally and professionally.
"Salmonella and Cyclospora are very serious illnesses that can have a massive impact on the health of those affected and, in some severe cases, can prove to be fatal.
“We have recently been contacted by a number of other couples who travelled to the Moon Palace Resort in 2016 and also suffered severe gastric illness following their stay. It is worrying to hear that other holidaymakers have suffered the same problems as Dannie and Liam. We would urge anyone else who suffered problems at the hotel to get in touch as they may be able to help with our investigations.
“We would also urge Thomas Cook to take action so no one else suffers in the way Dannie and Liam did.”
“It is welcome that the local authority has warned parents generally not to send their children to school if they show symptoms of norovirus in order to prevent the illness from spreading any further, and also that they have taken steps to close Milton Junior School.
“This is the third large illness outbreak reported at schools across the country in recent weeks and it is important that a thorough investigation is conducted into each of these outbreaks to establish if the measures in place to deal with these incidents are sufficient.
“We have seen through our work that gastric illnesses of this nature can be particularly dangerous for young people and can have a long-term impact on their health.
“Due to the number of young people falling ill, it is clear that many people will be seeking answers and it is vital that the parents of those affected understand what caused their child’s illness.”
“Having heard first-hand accounts of the illness Julia and Anthony suffered in April 2016 and the problems repeatedly suffered by passengers in May and July 2015, we are shocked to hear further reports of illness emerge on board the Balmoral this month.
“Clearly a significant number of passengers and crew members have fallen ill in this latest norovirus outbreak and we hope that this latest outbreak will lead to action being taken to ensure that the ship is free from norovirus ahead of its next voyage. We hope that Fred Olsen will take all appropriate measures to help prevent another outbreak from occurring.
“In addition to this, we would urge Fred Olsen to commence a full investigation into the outbreak if they have not already done so, to identify where improvements can be made to heighten hygiene standards and safety on future voyages.
“Norovirus is contagious and can leave victims suffering with significant symptoms which can have a huge impact on their day-to-day lives. The last thing passengers should be considering when booking a cruise is whether they could fall ill.
“Our investigations into the cause of the illnesses on the Balmoral in April 2016 are underway, however we remain very keen to hear from anyone else affected who may be able to provide further information regarding the outbreak of illness, and the circumstances giving rise to it.”
