No matter what the severity of an injury, it’s bound to be a traumatic time. Family life and careers are often disrupted, so it’s gratifying to help clients succeed in their claims as it’s often the first step in regaining some degree of normality in their lives. I deal with all sorts of personal injuries, but as I’m a keen sportsman I’ve increasingly specialised in sports related injuries. Cycling is a passion for me, so I’ve built up a lot of experience in dealing with cycle and motorcycle injury claims, which few people do
