I specialise in injuries at work, fatal and serious personal injury claims, road traffic collision claims and industrial disease claims, including asbestos-related diseases. I have extensive experience in cases against the Ministry of Defence for noise-induced hearing loss and cases involving sporting and extreme activities, such as fitness training, abseiling and mountain rescue training.
I am a panel member of the Greater Manchester Asbestos Victims Support Group.
In the North West I work with the Communication Workers Union, Aftermath Support and I have assisted RoadPeace North West since its inception.
I became a lawyer to help people to improve their situation and where possible right the wrong they have experienced.
The driving force each day is the motivation to secure the best result for my clients.
I enjoy all aspects of working at Irwin Mitchell, but most of all the contact with my colleagues, the depth and breadth of their expertise, professionalism and friendliness. The resources of the firm really allow you to deliver the best outcome for each client.
I am married and have two young children so family life is the centre of my universe. When I have a chance I keep fit learning self defence, Krav Maga, and boxing. This is helped by cycling to work each day.

“Workers’ Memorial Day is an important moment to reflect on the terrible impact that asbestos has had on so many lives and these recent HSE figures highlight the sad reality that we see day to day in our work.
“That reality is many people are dying due to asbestos exposure in the past. The majority of those were exposed to asbestos at work, and were completely unaware of the dangers of the hazardous material.
“Many of these deaths were entirely preventable and resulted overwhelmingly from negligence or a breach of statutory duty on the part of employers who failed to fulfil their legal obligation to provide safe working conditions for their workforce.”
“This case is sadly like a great many others we are involved in, with people going on to develop very serious illnesses a number of years after asbestos exposure is thought to have occurred.
“As part of our efforts to develop a full picture of Trevor’s working life, we are keen to fully understand the conditions he faced during these roles and would be hugely grateful to anyone who may be able to provide information which will help us.
“Any detail, no matter how small, could prove fundamental to our efforts to ensure that he gets the answers he deserves regarding his illnesses.”
“The terrible legacy of asbestos had had a huge impact on so many lives and this is yet another case in which the consequences of exposure to the material have become apparent many years after the contact is believed to have happened.
“Our client is understandably keen for answers regarding how his illness has emerged and we are determined to do everything we can to help him gain justice.
“Any information regarding the working conditions at the Horwich Carriage and Wagon Works across the period outlined could prove absolutely vital in our efforts, so we would be hugely grateful to anyone who is able to come forward and help.”
“This is another case which demonstrates the shocking legacy that asbestos has had on so many lives, with our client developing the terminal cancer mesothelioma many years after he is thought to have come into contact with it.
“After reviewing David’s work history we have come to believe he could have been exposed to the material in a number of roles. With this in mind, we would be keen to hear from anyone who may have more information on its presence in these jobs.”
