Personal Injury

He brings over 25 years of experience handling higher value liability and quantum disputes in all types of personal injury. His range is vast, covering conventional and niche areas. There is little if anything he hasn’t seen before.

David has enormous experience in high value claims. He has a particular expertise in multiple orthopaedic injuries and brain injuries arising from motorcycle and cycling accidents. He has huge experience in pedestrian cases and has a particular interest in accident reconstruction. He has developed a significant and growing following in the niche field of Functional Neurological Disorder which compliments and sits alongside his wider pain practice. More widely he deals with amputations, brachial plexus injuries, serious upper and lower limb injuries and psychiatric injury in which he has a specialist experience in secondary victims.
