John is an experienced personal injury specialist and accepts instructions in a broad range of Multi-track injury matters (road traffic, work accidents and public liability claims) but has become best known for motor fraud cases, including fraud rings, staged accidents, those that never happened, and bogus passenger claims. He is the preferred counsel for a number of large insurers in this area. Credit hire is also a topic regularly covered in John’s road traffic practice.
John’s employers’ liability practice covers spinal and subtle brain injury, for claimants and defendants, as well as the full range of more prosaic work-related injury, for example lifting and falling. He has also provided advice and representation in industrial disease claims for over a decade (deafness, asbestos, respiratory conditions, skin disorders and upper limb conditions/RSI). All aspects of these claims are handled from pre-litigation advice through to CCMCs, trial and costs.
Public liability claims have recently included fireworks display burns, animal bites and crushes, ice slipping accidents, product liability matters and school claims.
Latterly John has become the preferred Counsel for a number of public bodies and local authorities, representing and advising them in both County Court and High Court proceedings.
