Daniel is Head of the Personal Injury Team at St John’s Buildings. His practice focuses on high value and catastrophic injury claims.

He has a wealth of experience in dealing with issues of capacity, rehabilitation, care regimes, accommodation claims, prosthetic claims, interim payments and Periodical Payment Orders.
He adopts a truly forensic approach to his cases, providing detailed documentation at conference for early evaluation, which forms the basis of a strategic plan, which will analyse breach and causation, expert evidence, DVD evidence, costs and the risks of or incidences of fraud and/or exaggeration.
His understanding of the legal and medical issues is focused upon providing clear and unequivocal advice with risks and benefits carefully balanced. The majority of cases settle at either JSM or Mediation and he seeks resolution where it is in the best interest of his client, but otherwise is not afraid to proceed to trial.
