As the Partner who heads up the Critical Injury Team, I look after people who have suffered permanent and life-changing injuries (such as brain injury) and families whose loved ones have been killed in accidents.
The consequences of road traffic accidents or accidents at work (often in agriculture or the construction industry) are long lasting and emotionally and financially devastating. It’s my privilege to be able to help at a time in their lives when my clients and their families have been through such a traumatic experience and everything they hold dear to them appears to be changing.
I am dedicated to ensuring that my clients receive the care they need quickly, not at the end of a case. Appropriate and enabling rehabilitation promotes independence where that is possible. I secure substantial interim payments to pay for adapted accommodation, establishing case management and care and rehabilitation packages.
My clients receive full and proper compensation for their injuries or illness. In a recently settled case a client recovered in excess of £6m after suffering head and spinal injuries in an accident at work.
One of the most rewarding aspects of my role is the number of clients who choose to stay in touch with me after the end of their cases. I enjoy seeing how their lives have developed and improved. I hope this reflects the service I provided during the course of the case and the close relationship they built up with me. I am also a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel and chair of the newly formed Headway group in Ceredigion – the local charity for people with brain injuries.
Away from the office I am an enthusiastic sportsman, having played rugby and cricket at competitive level and continue to play team golf and squash. I also enjoy cycling, sailing and skiing.
I am a native of West Wales and a Welsh speaker.
I must commend Redkite solicitors for their total dedication in my personal injury claim, especially my solicitor Mr Mike Evans who was ever the professional. Mr Evans secured an out of court settlement for me, which was way above what I expected and was a load of pressure off my mind. I am so glad that Mike was on my side and not the opposition, once again many thanks.
