Personal Injury

Andrew has a substantial personal injury practice, representing clients in a range of cases on the fast and multi tracks. He is experienced in cases involving road traffic accidents (including allegations of LVI), employer’s liability 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.

Andrew also acts in professional negligence claims against solicitors relating to personal injury litigation. He also has experience in mid and high-value credit hire claims and regularly receives instructions in respect of industrial disease claims.

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.
