For over 25 years I have specialised in pursuing compensation claims for individuals who have suffered injury in an accident at work or developed  illness as a result of their work. Over the years I have dealt with claims for accidents across a wide range of industries as diverse as mining, construction, manufacturing and the health service. I have wide experience of dealing with occupational disease claims including mesothelioma and other asbestos related disease claims in which I have a particular interest. I have also dealt with claims for other lung diseases including occupational asthma and  have extensive experience of dealing with claims for other diseases including VWF and RSI.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

A desire to help achieve justice and redress for those who have suffered illness and injury from going about their work.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Winning compensation for people whose lives have been blighted by accidents at work or occupational disease or for the families of those who have been killed. No amount of compensation can make good the loss of health or of a loved one but compensation can help and provide them with financial security.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I enjoy working as a member of a team, supported by the resources of the larger organisation, the National Law firm.
