I am an associate solicitor in the serious injury and child abuse team in Irwin Mitchell’s London office. I have a varied case load specialising in claims following accidents at work, road traffic accidents, public liability and child abuse.
I bring claims against employers following injuries at work due to negligence and breaches of statutory duty. I specialise in claims following falls from height, manual handing or injuries caused by defective work equipment. I mainly represent clients with serious orthopaedic injuries and amputations.
I also represent adult clients in claims against individual abusers and following abuse whilst at school, in children's homes and in the care of the local authority. I have experience in representing children in civil claims against local authorities where they were found to have been negligent after failing to remove children from their parent’s care after a catalogue of incidents of concern.
I am accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) as a senior litigator. I am a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme and a member of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers (ACAL).
I went into the law to make a difference and support people and their families during what can be the most difficult time in their lives. I provide them with clear advice and support them through their rehabilitation.
The most rewarding aspect of my role is when I am able to help people improve their quality of life through the claim in addition to achieving significant settlements. Rehabilitation at the earliest opportunity is really important to me. Getting an injured person or a survivor of abuse access to treatment and support is extremely rewarding.
Working for a specialist firm allows me to achieve the best results for my client. We all share the ethos of “making a difference” and this is evident in all the work we do.
I spend the weekends with my young family usually enjoying good food and the great outdoors!
While many people with a brain injury may no longer show any physical signs after their initial recovery the effects can last for many years.
“Lenny faces major challenges because of his injuries. He is receiving significant care and assistance from his mum and dad whilst an independent occupational therapy assessment has identified that he requires specialist therapies to boost his recovery.
“It’s now important that Lenny’s case is progressed with the utmost urgency, allowing him to access the funds to cover the cost of therapies and treatment he needs to overcome his injuries the best he can.”
Despite extensive enquiries by the police, officers have so far been unable to trace the person responsible for the collision.
“We are supporting the police with their investigation and would appeal for anyone who may have information about the collision, or the moments before or after Niraj’s life was changed forever to come forward.
“It might only seem a small piece of information but that small detail could provide vital information in helping Niraj see the driver brought to justice. Justice that he deserves.
“Niraj faces a long road to recovery. We are working with him to help Niraj to obtain the treatment and therapies he needs to overcome his injuries."
“The high-profile cases we have seen in the past few years, like Rotherham and Savile, have highlighted the issue of abuse like never before.
“Like those cases this one serves as an important reminder of how people in positions of trust and power can take advantage of innocent victims.
“Sadly, we deal with many cases where people have been abused resulting in the survivor suffering devastating and lifelong issues. It is vital steps are taken to ensure they obtain justice and get answers.
“It is unacceptable that these survivors of abuse are being denied the answers they so deserve.”
Barry is lucky to be alive because of the driver’s actions which highlight the devastating consequences speeding can have. Speeding to cut a journey time by a couple of minutes is not worth risking someone else’s life.
“The injuries Barry suffered will affect his life for a long time and he needs intensive rehabilitation to help combat them. He has been left devastated at being unable to return to the job and has struggled to come to terms with the fact that he will not be able to work in an active role again.
“We hope that the settlement will now help him to concentrate on rebuilding his life with help from continuing rehabilitation so that he can try and move on from his horrific ordeal.”
