My Expertise

My expertise includes providing clear direction on matters surrounding catastrophic injury and large claims, commercial insurance, and employers and public liability claims.

Read more about me

I specialise in defending claims for insurers involving accidents at work, public liability, property damage and motor accidents.  I identify issues of exaggeration early on and make a priority of settling claims as soon as possible, unless a strong issue is identified which prevents this. 

In addition to providing authoritative, clear direction on litigation matters I work across the industry providing policy advice in relation to the areas of claim identified.  Understanding client needs and delivering service excellence is important for this.

Reported decisions include:

  • Tesco Stores v Pollard 2006 EWCA Civ 393 which related to consumer safety and the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
  • Ide v ATB Sales Ltd 2007 EWHC 1667  which looked at causation in a product liability claim
  • Gurney Consulting Engineers v Gleeds Health & Safety Ltd 2006 EWHC 536 which involved liability for the collapse of a building.
  • Brumder v Motornet Service & Repairs Ltd 2013 EWCA 195 which involved duties owed by companies to directors.
