Personal Injury

Personal injury law makes up the bulk of Ian’s practice. He is instructed by both Claimants and insurers in matters arising out of RTAs, slips and trips and accidents at work. He also has a developing practice in industrial deafness (NIHL) claims.

Ian successfully represented the Claimant in Nathanmanna v UK Insurance & Ors (May 2016, unreported) one of the first hearings to deal with the interpretation of CPR 44.15.


Ian is the author of The Injury Appeals Blog, which provides summaries of every personal injury or clinical negligence appeal decided by the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal as the judgments are released.


Ian has also written the Westlaw Insights articles on Duty of Care and Causation in personal injury and clinical negligence and on RTAs.


He has also given a Lexis Nexis webinar on the future of the Ogden Tables in the light of Billett v Ministry of Defence [2015] EWCA Civ 773.
