Personal Injury

He has a particular interest in employers’ liability and clinical negligence claims and is regularly instructed to act on behalf of Police Officers injured in the course of their duties.

 

He has experience of dealing with complex high value claims, including those involving brain injury and serious orthopaedic injuries.

 

Daniel is praised for his calm and reassuring manner and is frequently instructed in cases requiring a sensitive and client-focussed approach, including Fatal Accident Act cases and a recent case advising a terminally ill and fragile client necessitating a home visit.

 

Notable personal injury claims include:

  • Representing a Defendant in a High Court case concerning the recovery of approximately £10 million of fees relating to personal injury claims – Daniel was successful in having the claim against his client struck out.

  • Re AS – ongoing claim in respect of a catastrophic brain injury sustained in a road traffic accident.

The case required detailed and careful consideration of a complicated dependency claim on behalf of a variety of family members with different statuses.
