- Adult and child severe brain injuries
- Spinal cord injury
Recognised as one of the UK’s leading catastrophic personal injury lawyers, I am the firm’s senior partner and head of personal injury, based at our London office. I also have overall responsibility for the firm’s litigation service.
I have two key areas of practice which I am passionate about – I help people with severe brain injuries and spinal cord injuries secure fair compensation for what can be life changing injuries.
My areas of expertise are:
- Catastrophic injuries – adult/child brain and spinal cord injury
- Accidents abroad and cross-jurisdictional claims
- Complex medical causation and intervening medical negligence
- Court of Protection
As a team, we are dedicated to improving the quality of life of our clients.
Clients with spinal cord injuries are helped through the award-winning Aspire Law – www.aspirelaw.co.uk – a law firm I created with leading spinal cord injury charity, Aspire.
Through Moore Barlow, I support adults and children who have suffered severe and life changing brain injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence. I work closely with brain injury charities, most notably Headway and the Child Brain Injury Trust.
I have dealt with a large number of claims on behalf of clients, many claims resulting in seven-figure settlements. My interest has always extended far beyond maximising compensation awards; one of my key priorities has been to enable the effective rehabilitation of my clients.
My clients come from across the UK and abroad. I also have significant experience acting for clients whose injuries were sustained abroad.
Wherever possible, I aim to obtain interim payments for clients. This enables me to put rehabilitation, a care package and suitable accommodation in place at the earliest possible stage and ideally before my client leaves hospital.
I am supported by a dedicated team with vast experience of succeeding in complex and high-value brain injury claims. We assemble a partner led team for every brain injury claim we handle. As each team deals with a small number of cases at any one time, all our clients receive a proactive and personal service.
We always aim to secure clients the best possible level of compensation in the shortest time possible. This gives clients peace of mind that their future medical needs and care will be adequately covered.
I visit clients at major trauma centres, hospitals or rehabilitation centres throughout the country. I also see clients at their homes or, if they prefer, at an appropriate venue close to their home. I am also able to see clients at our offices in London, Richmond, Southampton and have access to meeting rooms in most major cities.
I also assist clients who lack capacity to manage their own affairs; I am a Court of Protection approved Deputy.
