Kerron practises exclusively in personal injury. He practises mainly in respect of claimants but also has a substantial practice representing defendants. More recently, he has represented various local authorities, carrying out drafting and advisory work as well as conducting trials in a wide array of cases, at both fast-track and multi-track level.
Kerron’s practice largely comprises claims with a value greater than £25,000, with a substantial proportion of those cases having values in excess of £100,000.
The vast majority of paperwork will be turned around within 7-14 days (2-3 days for the more straightforward advices/pleadings) but he is responsive to any request for faster or urgent turnaround.
He has extensive experience in the following areas of practice:
- Advising across a range of liability and quantum issues in cases worth up to £3m.
- Particular experience in chronic pain syndrome/CRPS/Fibromyalgia cases and the particular difficulties those cases involve;
- Costs budgeting hearings;
- Fatal accidents;
- Drafting schedules of loss in multi-track cases;
- Clinical negligence work
Kerron likes to meet the client wherever that is possible and as early as possible. He finds it improves greatly the assessment of a case’s merits and value, and puts the client at ease about the future progress of the case.
He ensures he is available to talk to instructing solicitors at any time on the telephone, and is happy to provide informal advice on cases regardless of whether he has been, or will be, instructed in the case. He considers that his primary role is to make his instructing solicitor’s life easier.
