About James

  • Amputee claims
  • Claims involving complex liability or causation issues
  • Cases involving jurisdictional issues

I work in the serious injury team specialising in supporting clients who have suffered injuries of maximum severity as a result of negligence.

My clients are children and adults who have suffered severe injury including spinal cord injuries, severe head injuries and serious orthopaedic injuries.  I also represent the families of individuals who have died.

I work on many multi-million pound claims, and have particular expertise in personal injury, catastrophic injuries, severe burns and orthopaedic injury claims.  I also have expertise in fatal accident claims including coroners’ inquests.

I have extensive experience in representing clients in high value and complex cases and have specialist experience in cases where accidents have occurred at sea meaning there are complex jurisdictional issues.

I regularly represent clients at court hearings myself.  I have also developed relationships with leading barristers whom I can call on when needed.

I work closely with the partners of the firm, in particular senior partner, Damian Horan.
