I am a Partner in the Serious Injury team, based in our London office. I joined Irwin Mitchell in 2006 and specialise in complex cases involving life changing injuries; I have a particular interest in brain injury.
I am accredited by APIL as a senior litigator and am a member of the Law Society's Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme.
In addition to my case work I have close links with Headway, the brain injury charity: I was appointed as a Trustee of Headway East London in 2013. I am also a Committee member for the Acquired Brain Injury Forum for London (ABIL) and am keen to raise awareness of acquired brain injury across London and the UK.
I am passionate about rehabilitation and have extensive experience of securing interim payments for my clients to ensure that their rehabilitation can start as soon as possible.
Jaxx Cave, one of my clients, suffered serious head injuries in a road accident. She's since made a remarkable recovery, which you can follow in the online mini series below. Read more about Jaxx's story here.
I became a personal injury lawyer to help make a difference to people who need clear and skilled advice at a traumatic time of their lives.
Whilst my priority is to obtain the best possible settlements for my clients, I find it most satisfying to help to bring some sense of normality back to their lives after a serious and often life changing injury.
I work within a team of highly skilled solicitors of all levels of experience. We often share our knowledge and experiences and this is invaluable to the development of our team. I feel proud to work with such highly skilled and dedicated colleagues, who do all they can to support their clients.
I love visiting London's amazing art galleries and theatres but with two young boys, I spend most of my spare time playing football.
“We see first-hand the terrible effects of brain injury on our clients, whether it be through illness or injury and many of the people we have helped have also benefited from the wonderful work of Headway.
“A brain injury turns a person’s life upside-down; suddenly their families have to start researching facilities and therapies, not to mention start thinking about when their loved one returns home and the adaptions and care they may need. Speaking out during Action For Brain Injury Week helps signpost that help and support for those going through those terrifying and traumatic early stages of brain injury.
“Having visited Tom in the beginning, I could never have imagined how successful his rehabilitation would be. Tom is an inspiration to so many people suffering with severe brain injury and a testament to how love and support – and his love of sport - can lead to rehabilitation.”
“Andrew suffered terrible injuries at work in 2012 and has faced a very difficult road to recovery in the last four years.
“He still has a long way to go and we are determined to help him by accessing funds that will allow him to provide for his family, as well as to ensure he has access the care he continues to need.
“The HSE’s prosecution of Highway Care Ltd and the fined imposed on the company will hopefully mean that the failures identified during the investigation will be resolved immediately. We also hope this incident and the legal action will act as a reminder to all employers of the need to protect staff and provide them with a safe working environment."
“Tom and Louise are an amazing example of a couple who have defied the most traumatic and trying of circumstances to stay together and come out the other side stronger than ever.
“We see first-hand the terrible effects of brain injury on our clients, whether it be through illness or injury. A brain injury turns a person’s life upside-down; suddenly their families have to start researching facilities and therapies, not to mention start thinking about when their loved one returns home and the adaptions and care they may need.
“We were able to help Tom by appointing a case manager to assess his needs so we could secure funding for treatment and specialist rehabilitation. This has enabled Tom to continue the momentum of his recovery.
“Having visited him in the beginning, I could never have imagined how successful his rehabilitation would be. Tom is an inspiration to so many people suffering with severe brain injury and a testament to how love and support – and a love of sport - can lead to rehabilitation.”
James has made tremendous progress thanks to specialist rehabilitation but the fact remains that he is going to need substantial care and support.
“We are working with the MoD to finalise a settlement that ensures James has this specialist care as well as on-going rehabilitation and therapies that help him to live life to his full potential.”
