Simon continues to maintain a significant practice in the fields of personal injury and clinical negligence, undertaking both claimant and defendant work. The majority of his claimant work is multi-track, and includes catastrophic injuries of the brain and spine. Simon’s practice also includes claims in respect of armed forces personnel. In clinical negligence he has developed a particular niche in birth injuries.
As well as high value defendant work Simon, as he has done for many years, continues to represent a number of Local Authorities in fast track highway, EL and PL claims.
Authorities that instruct him on a regular basis include Bolton, Wigan, Oldham and Manchester. The other significant area of volume work undertaken by Simon is defendant disease work. Whilst this includes deafness cases, his work is primarily centred upon mesothelioma claims.
Simon is an all-round performer although his particular strength is court trial work. He is affable and approachable and has a loyal and popular following amongst those whom instruct him.
