About Matthew

  • Adult brain injury
  • Child brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Complex orthopaedic, including amputation
  • Fatal incidents, including inquest

I am an experienced serious injury solicitor who specialises in accessing rehabilitation for people who have suffered major trauma. I also represent at inquest those who have been bereaved. 

My clients are those who have, through no fault of their own, suffered major trauma or bereavement either in the UK or abroad. On their behalf, I claim compensation from the party at fault. An important part of this process is to secure payments as quickly as possible (interim payments) to support rehabilitation.

I am also experienced with acting for those who suffer serious injury or bereavement as a result of an incident on Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB).

Many of my clients are people who have suffered major brain or spinal cord injuries, and the families of fatal incident victims.

I like to keep as fit as possible. I am a keen cyclist, half-marathon runner and skier.
