Wayne Smith

Advocate - Associate


I practice exclusively in civil litigation, specialising in personal injury and complex liability disputes. I advise across all levels of complexity, from small value to multi-track claims. I have a broad range of advocacy and advisory experience encompassing:

  • Road traffic accidents
  • Public liability claims (Highway claims)
  • Breach of statutory duty
  • Credit hire
  • Fatal accidents and inquests

I am widely accepted and acknowledged within the department as being an expert referral point, with particular emphasis on unusual, technical or complex matters. I regularly represent the interests of the firm and its clients at Court in various hearings from applications and case management to RTA Stage 3 hearings, disposals and inquests.

I also provide written and verbal advice (to practitioners, work sources and clients) across the spectrum of motor-related matters. I draft technical legal documents such as unusual particulars of claim, appeals, questions to medical experts, complex Part 18 questions and highly complex witness statements.

I have provided numerous lectures across the practice area on various topics such as the interpreting/challenging of medical evidence, the Compensation Recovery Unit and making appeals, self-employed lost earnings claims and defences.
