Richard specialises in all aspects of Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence work. His practice encompasses injuries of the utmost severity and he regularly acts alone in cases where the value is pleaded up to £1,000,000. He has secured millions of pounds of compensation for seriously injured Claimants and their Dependants. He also defends cases of similar value at Trial, and at Joint Settlement Meetings, for numerous Insurers and the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. He has secured substantial awards before the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, where the damages initially awarded were inadequate.
