I am a senior associate in the Serious Injury team based in London. I joined Irwin Mitchell in 2011.
I specialise in complex serious injury claims including cases where my client has suffered a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury. I also represent clients who have suffered serious orthopaedic injuries or amputation, as well as those who suffer with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). I regularly represent the families and dependants of people who have been killed as the result of an accident.
I deal with a full spectrum of accidents, including claims relating to road traffic accidents, accidents at work and Occupiers' Liability claims.
I help with claims for children as well as for adults.
I am an APIL accredited brain injury specialist.
The most rewarding aspect of my role lies in using the personal injury process to ensure that my clients gain access to the therapies, medical treatment, care and financial support that they need following their injury. By securing funding from opponents at an early stage, a personal injury claim can assist to maximise a person's recovery, to increase their independence and, in some cases, to assist them to get back to work following a life changing injury.
The firm has a fundamental commitment to helping its clients not only with compensation, but also rehabilitation, and it's this that I value most. Moreover, as full service firm we have the benefit of being supported by colleagues with specialisms across a broad range of areas - such as Court of Protection, public law, family law and employment law. These areas are often linked in personal injury claims: and so when issues arise, we're able to draw on the expertise and support of our colleagues to ensure that we can provide all-round solutions for our clients.
Employers are still taking chances with safety in the workplace and people, such as Pete, are still dying as a result.
“Pete was going about his daily work when this accident occurred. We believe that his death sadly illustrates the devastating consequences that can occur when companies do not follow health and safety guidelines.
“Workers’ Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have died in the workplace but to also campaign for improvements. We join Bev in calling for all employers to recognise the need of upholding health and safety standards at all times.
“We will continue to support Bev and her family in their fight for justice following Pete’s death.”
The details outlined at this inquest have raised a number of hugely worrying concerns regarding safety of the vehicle that Pete was operating on the day he died. It is our view that, had the defects in Pete’s vehicle been rectified, his death could undoubtedly have been prevented.
“Following this hearing, we are now continuing with our work to ensure that Bev and the family gain justice regarding Pete’s death and the many issues which have been identified in relation to the incident. It is our view that there are clear improvements required to ensure the same never happens again.”
This is a tragic case in which a much-loved husband, father and grandfather lost his life in the course of his work.
“Peter’s family have many questions regarding the incident and actions which led to his death and we are hopeful that the upcoming inquest will provide some key answers regarding what happened on that day.”
