Personal Injury

David maintains a large and busy higher value personal injury practice. He acts on behalf of both claimants and defendants.

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 (& other somatoform disorders), amputee claims, employers’ liability, insurance disputes, military claims, product liability, public & 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.
