Personal Injury

Andrew’s personal injury practice focuses on multi track claims, often with a value in excess of £100,000 and to around £1.5 million. He also accepts instructions on fast track claims where appropriate.

He has substantial experience in RTA claims and is the appointed counsel for a large national firm to conduct their claims involving motorcycles.

He is also regularly instructed in employer’s liability claims and Highways cases.

He provides a fast turnaround on paperwork for pleadings and advice on liability and/or quantum. Andrew is happy to act on a Conditional Fee arrangement where appropriate.

He seeks to establish and prioritise the practical needs and wishes of his clients, to negotiate strong settlements where this is possible, and to provide robust advocacy where is it not. He is very client focused and aims to put his clients at ease at the earliest opportunity. Whilst sensitive and empathetic to the situations facing his clients, he offers firm, independent and realistic advice, whilst adopting a practical and proactive approach.

Andrew offers a fast turnaround on paperwork and is happy to speak with solicitors either in or out of hours for ad-hoc queries or assistance.
