Personal Injury

David maintains a large and busy higher value personal injury practice.

His practice covers all aspects of the field with a focus on liability and quantum disputes of the more complex type.

He accepts instructions in a wide range of matters from catastrophic brain and spinal cord injuries, chronic pain disorders (and other somatoform disorders), amputee claims, employers’ liability, insurance disputes, military claims, product liability, public and occupiers’ liability, public liability, subtle brain injury and water contamination cases.

David is a strong advocate and negotiator but equally has a friendly and forward thinking approach to his practice and when appropriate he is more than happy to take an informal call to discuss a new case or discuss an issue in a case which wouldn’t necessarily justify a formal instruction.
