Stephen specialises in all aspects of personal injury work, acting both for Claimants and Defendants. His practise includes road traffic litigation, highways claims, disease and occupational illness work, product liability, claims involving minors, fatal accidents, Coroners Court inquests and CICA matters. His practice encompasses Court work from the fast track through to high-end multi-track and includes hearings up to and including the Court of Appeal.
Stephen is a strong advocate of client care and simplifying the legal process for clients. In this regard, he recognises the value of conferences in Chambers, over the telephone or at the offices of his instructing solicitors in order to facilitate settlement. He offers a 7 day turnaround for advices, particularly infant settlement claims.
Stephen’s experience of fraudulent claims includes road traffic cases, in particular, staged accidents, low velocity impact and phantom passenger claims, as well as employer’s liability claims where the accident has been fabricated or exaggerated. Recently, Stephen acted in a case brought against a landlord by a tenant in which the tenant staged the accident and a case against a hardware store in which a customer exaggerated the nature of his injuries.
Stephen is regularly reported on Lawtel and in Kemp & Kemp, Butterworths Personal Injury Litigation Service and Current Law.
He is a member of the Personal Injury Bar Association.
