Personal Injury

As a junior Simon specialised in high value personal injury claims and was able to secure a £10m plus settlement in a tetraplegic case that was on liability and quantum.

As a silk Simon has built up a claimant only ABI practice, represented claimants in historical sexual abuse claims and is currently representing British Airways pilots instructed by Thompsons and BALPA for spinal injuries caused by the configuration of security measures on flight decks.

Simon’s employment work also overlaps with his personal injury work in cases particularly relating to the Protection from Harassment Act and stress claims.
