  • Swift v Carpenter [2018] EWHC 2060 (QB); [2020] EWCA Civ. 1295 – represented Claimant in this seminal case rectifying the law on the assessment of damages for accommodation for seriously injured people, meaning that fairer compensation will now be assured.
  • Recovered £4.3m in damages for a Claimant who suffered an above the knee amputation of her left leg after being hit by a van whose driver lost control because of an under-inflated rear tyre.
  • £5.2m in damages recovered for a 43 year old man who suffered complete paralysis below his abdomen as a result of a road traffic collision caused by a car driver turning across the path of his motorcycle. 
  • Represented the family of Ralph Brazier at an inquest and in a successful civil case for damages. Ralph died as a result of the front wheel of his bicycle being trapped in a large pothole and sunken drain in Weybridge, Surrey. Despite the Coroner expressly stating that the incident was caused by Surrey County Council’s failure to maintain the highway and making a Prevention of Future Deaths Report, liability was denied by Surrey CC, who in any event blamed third party contractors if there was any fault. The case settled out of Court for a significant sum of damages paid by both Surrey CC and its contractor.
