In the personal injury arena, where he acts for both Claimants and Defendants across the full spectrum of personal injury litigation, Chris has a high-end fast-track and multi-track practice which regularly involves claims valued in excess of £100,000, and often in excess of £250,000.
Whilst he has a particular interest in employers’ liability matters, he routinely represents both Claimants and Defendants in public and occupiers’ liability claims and all aspects of road traffic litigation to include, fraud, credit hire and LVI matters. He routinely deals with fatal accident claims and has been involved in a number of modest brain injury cases.
He is regularly instructed in cases in which pain disorders are diagnosed or disputed. He is, therefore, well versed in the interplay between such conditions and allegations of exaggeration and/or fraud.
Chris also undertakes clinical negligence work including dental negligence claims.
His costs background makes him an ideal choice as advocate in CCMCs and in other situations in which costs issues arise.
He attends JSMs where his manner with both clients and opponents and his fair, but firm, advice allows the best chance of claims being resolved without the need for trial.
In these areas of practice Chris accepts appropriate work on a CFA basis.
