Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence

Alex is frequently instructed in complex/catastrophic personal injury claims (both by claimants and defendants) and clinical negligence claims (especially concerning mental health). He has particular expertise of workplace stress claims, high-value psychiatric injury, cases where fundamental dishonesty is alleged and fatal accident claims. He recently represented a public authority in a High Court claim, for £1 million, in respect of psychiatric injuries. He is currently instructed in a high-value High Court clinical negligence claim against the MOD, combining allegations of misdiagnosis and bullying/harassment. 

Alex delivers lectures on workplace stress claims and fundamental dishonesty issues. He is often instructed by defendants when evidence of potential fraud arises in a clam. His extensive experience of psychiatric injury cases and experts in this area means that he is often instructed when new medical evidence emerges to suggest the claim will be of a very high value.

Alex also represents defendants in clinical negligence claims, including the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Justice. Alex successfully represented the Ministry of Justice in a 5-day assault trial involving oral evidence from 4 expert witnesses.
