Matthew qualified as a Solicitor in 2009 and has worked in the personal injury field ever since, working in most areas of personal injury work. He has substantial experience in dealing with accidents in the workplace and accidents in public. He also heads up the Travel Claims Department which deals with accidents abroad in many areas such as road traffic accidents, package holiday accidents, cruise ship holidays and accidents on an aircraft.
Matthew has worked on and continues to work on claims of significant value. His most memorable settlements have been:
• Accident at work settling for £240,000.00 in which an individual employed as an engineer for Go-Ahead London Buses had his tibia and fibula broken as a result of a bus driver reversing over his leg whilst he was repairing the bus. The individual was left with permanent mobility problems and was unable to return to employment with the company.
• Recovered £50,000.00 for a lady who slipped on ice in the car park of a Co-operative store in Carlisle in which she fractured her right ankle. The Claimant was unemployed at the time of her accident and therefore the vast majority of her damages comprised of damages for personal injury compensation in addition to carer’s and treatment/rehabilitation costs.
• Occupiers claim in which two individuals slipped on foil confetti at an event at Blackpool Tower Ballroom in which one of the individuals suffered a fractured jaw and the other a fractured elbow. The case was disputed close to Trial before a settlement of £29,000 was agreed. Neither of the individuals required time off work, however, they did receive compensation for care they required post-accident in addition to injury.
Matthew is passionate about building a relationship with each of his clients in order to meet their expectations and understand them. having worked at the firm since it was established, his dedication to his work and customer service is unquestionable.
