I am a personal injury solicitor with over 15 years' experience acting for claimants in road traffic claims, accident at work claims, clinical negligence claims, assault / criminal injuries (CICA) claims and industrial disease claims. My main areas of specialisation are catastrophic injury claims, CICA claims and work related upper limb disorder claims.
I enjoy an argument and have a strong sense of justice.
Doing a good job for clients.
I enjoy working at Irwin Mitchell because of the challenging work and the fact that you are well supported, not only professionally but personally.
“Irwin Mitchell, who have been representing victims of crime for over 30 years, warmly welcome the Victims’ Commissioner Baroness Newlove's comprehensive report into the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
“It is great news for our clients, and indeed all victims of crime, that at long last it has been recognised that the system designed to help them very often in fact re-traumatises them.
“We wholly support the recommendations that a system currently mired in bureaucracy, be quicker, more transparent and fair so victims feel supported and empowered by the process and that they are compensated fairly for the injuries suffered.
“With the forthcoming Ministry Of Justice review of the process there is real force for change. We look forward to working with all the agencies concerned to help bring this about.”
This is a complex and significant case that ultimately boiled down to the interpretation of the Offences Against the Person Act.
“The lack of distinction between mothers and their unborn babies means a foetus does not have a legal personality to constitute ‘any other person’. Therefore, in the eyes of the law, no criminal offence took place against this young girl in the womb.
“The effects of excessive alcohol on an unborn foetus can be devastating and the impact the lifestyle of a child for the rest of its life. The risks of drinking excessive amounts of alcohol while pregnant are well known and it is vital this tragic case acts as a wake-up call to ensure people are aware of the dangers of consuming excessive alcohol when pregnant.”
Adam suffered from horrendous injuries due to the incident and his prognosis was not good, leaving his family devastated about what the future might hold.
“But he has exceeded all the doctor’s expectations and is a fantastic example of the importance of good long-term support – something he would admit has helped him to achieve what he has throughout his recovery.
“The settlement secured will provide Adam with the lifelong care and rehabilitation he needs and the figure also takes into consideration the fact he will struggle to maintain full-time employment.
“Whilst nothing can make up for the devastating injuries Adam suffered we hope the settlement finally provides closure for the family and they can begin to move forward with their lives safe in the knowledge Adam can now receive the best possible care and support.”
