Personal Injury

Owain regularly advises in relation to personal injury claims including road traffic accidents, occupier’s liability claims, workplace regulation claims and those brought under the Consumer Protection Act. His work is predominantly fast track claims for both Claimants and Defendants, though he has had experience of multi-track cases and disease litigation (including deafness and HAVS claims). His interim hearing work includes advising on and appearing in applications for summary judgment, withdrawing admissions, setting aside judgment and amending statements of case.

He has been instructed in a number of CICA appeals often obtaining substantially increased awards for injury in addition to loss of earning’s. He brings his experience appearing in Coroner’s Inquests to his personal injury work.

Owain is happy to accept instructions on a CFA basis in appropriate cases.


Owain prides himself on his attention to detail, ability to grasp the issues and effective advocacy. The Chambers UK Bar Guide 2017 notes that: "He is unflappable, which is really nice because he can keep a calm head when everyone else is losing theirs. His drafting is nice and clear." "Has the ability to take a lot of documents and extract the most important issues."
