Q7. Will you PERSONALLY always be handling my claim?

A7. Yes – I have done that consistently for over 20 years

Q8. Do you work for both claimants (ie those who suffered the injury) and defendants (those who caused the injury)?
A8. No – I have always worked only for claimants

Q9. “Will you take any of my compensation to pay your costs?”

Q10. Have you ever written or published on the topic of catastrophic injury claims?
A10. Yes:

Q11. Have you ever lectured on the topic of catastrophic injury claims?

A11. Yes. I have been lecturing on personal injury claims since 1992, in the UK and Europe. I have given hundreds of lectures on a wide variety of topics.

Q12. Are you familiar with modern methods of managing catastrophic injury claims, such as mediation and non-court resolution of claims?

A12. Yes. I am an accredited mediator, and I support mediation and ADR (alternative dispute resolution) when appropriate. I have written frequently on non-court resolution.

Q13. Will you PERSONALLY come to see me at home, or locally, so that I don’t have to travel to your office? And will you do that throughout the claim, not just on the first occasion?

A13. I have spent the last 20 plus years travelling the country, seeing injured people and their families, at their convenience, and at every stage of the claim.

Q14. Do you believe passionately in the rights of those who have suffered catastrophic injury, and their families?  Can you prove this?


A14. I do, and I have the track record to prove it. I've done nothing but fight for claimants since I became a QC, which is why I called my book “Brain and Spine Injuries – the Fight for Justice”.

KEY Questions To Ask your potential Legal Team:
Your Solicitor, your Barrister, and your lead QC

Identifying expert specialist brain and spinal cord damage lawyers can be hard, as many negligence lawyers say they have the requisite expertise in this area and take on brain damage and spinal injury cases.  Unfortunately, this is not always the reality, and it is critically important that you only retain injury lawyers with an established and proven track record.

Here are some questions you should ask about any lawyer (a solicitor, a barrister and a QC) who wants to take your case.  My own answers are given below each question:
