Cases

  • Acted for a Defendant bus company at trial where there were issues regarding the credibility of the Claimant’s evidence. The Defendant was successful in obtaining a finding of fundamental dishonesty and an order for costs.

  • Acted for a Claimant who initially appeared to have suffered a relatively low level injury but went on to develop fibromyalgia. Drafted a significant Schedule of Loss and the claim ultimately settled for 6 figure sum.

  • Acted for Claimant with extensive injuries following a RTC. The case involved multiple experts across a wide range of issues. A particular feature of the case was future loss of earnings and Billett v MOD arguments. The claim settled following a JSM for a 6 figure sum.

  • Represented the insurer of a large chain restaurant in relation to a number of food poisoning claims arising out of the same incident. Although as a result of the same food poisoning outbreak, the claims all had different aspects to consider. Some had significant credibility issues. One multi-track matter is ongoing which involves complex issues of causation.
