I'm a Partner in the Birmingham Serious Injury team.
I deal with all types of serious personal injury cases, including adult brain injury, spinal cord injury, paediatric brain injury, amputations and limb loss, serious burns, chronic pain, PTSD, orthopaedic trauma, motorbike accident claims and fatal accident claims.
I deal with cases arising from road accidents, occupier liability claims, employer liability claims and public liability claims. I have a particular interest in accidents at work, including falls from height, defective equipment, manual handling, construction site and agricultural accidents and cases involving vicarious liability.
I believe in fairness and the state and businesses being accountable. Those who have been seriously injured through no fault of their own face many challenges and they are in great need of careful, considerate and professional advice to ensure that they are properly compensated. My career in law has put me in the privileged position of helping people in very difficult circumstances.
Seeing what a huge difference a successful case can make to individuals and their families. I often meet my clients at their lowest ebb, but being able to secure interim funds, rehabilitation and appropriate housing can have a hugely positive impact.
I am fortunate to work with a team of like minded and dedicated lawyers who put clients first and achieve excellent outcomes for them.
I follow Moseley Rugby and Durham County Cricket when time allows and spend time with my young family. I'm also a Real ale enthusiast.

“We are regularly contacted by workers who have become ill because of the failings in their employer’s commitment to health and safety in the workplace, or by bereaved people who have lost a loved one at work whose lives have been devastated as a result.
“The issue of health and safety in the workplace is a crucially important one for both employers and employees. Good health and safety practices are good for business but the issue of workplace health and safety has to be given very serious consideration by all interested parties.
“At Irwin Mitchell we have previously called for a move away from inaccurate, irresponsible ‘health and safety gone mad’ stories before and we repeat that call today. Attention should also be given to addressing the problem of unscrupulous employers failing to comply with the legal requirement to take out employer’s liability insurance.”
“To see that the figures have increased for the second year running, even if it is a slight increase, is not acceptable and any number of deaths is simply too many.
“We monitor HSE statistics to determine whether improvements have been made and while it is promising to see that the UK is considered to be one of the safest places to work in Europe, there are still some industry sectors where deaths at work are on the rise.
“We have repeatedly called for improvements to safety standards in the workplace and will continue to do so until companies stop putting the lives of employees at risk. All workers should be able to go to and from work every day without facing risk of injury or worse.
“Health and safety law needs to be a forefront priority for all employers and the government, and attention also needs to be drawn to disreputable businesses that fail to comply with their legal duty to take out employer liability insurance.”
“We have repeatedly called for improvements to safety standards in the workplace and will continue to do so until companies stop putting the lives of employees at risk. All employers should be able to go to and from work every day without facing risk of injury or worse.
“We are fighting for greater levels of protection all year round but Workers Memorial Day is a day in particular to remember those who have sadly lost their lives because of their employment. Time and time again we are approached by workers who have become ill by failings of health and safety in their workplace, or by people who have lost a loved one at work whose lives have been devastated as a result.
“There are 13,000 deaths a year from lung disease and cancer which are attributed to exposure of chemicals in the workplace. These deaths and others can be prevented with greater attention to health and safety, appropriate training, equipment and supervision.
“The issue of health and safety in the workplace is a significant one for employers and employees alike. Good health and safety is good for business. The issue of workplace health and safety needs to be given serious consideration by all interested parties. There needs to be a move away from inaccurate, irresponsible ‘health and safety gone mad’ stories. Attention also needs to be given to how to address the problem of unscrupulous employers failing to comply with their legal duty to take out employer liability insurance.
“We are campaigning today and shall continue to campaign to ensure that workers’ safety is a priority for the government, and that these risks are confronted head on with practical solutions.”
“The absolute priority at present is undoubtedly ensuring the loved ones of workers caught up in this tragic incident are given any support they require.
“Many others caught up in the blast have also lost friends and colleagues and may need support or therapy to recover mentally from this tragedy.
"It remains too early to say what caused this incident, but the police and the Health and Safety Executive will now work together to produce a thorough report into what occurred at the steelworks and decide if any further action is necessary, as well as providing the answers workers, and the families of those who lost their lives, are desperate for.
“Any findings from the investigation may also pin-point lessons that can be learned and measures that can be implemented to prevent a similar disaster in the future."
