PERSONAL INJURY

Darren has over 12 years’ experience in personal injury law with extensive experience in industrial disease litigation and employer’s liability, with an emphasis on emerging fields such as non-freezing cold injury claims and MoD Claims as well as NIHL, asbestosis and upper limb disorders. His clients range from heavy industries like Tata Steel to small businesses and public services.

He works in all aspects of local authority/government liability in personal injury and employment. He undertakes local authority work ranging from matters concerning highways and occupiers’ liability to very sensitive employer’s liability in cases where patients have assaulted staff in secure units, specialist schools and respite centres, and civil assault in prisons and young offenders’ institutions. He has a loyal following among local authorities ranging from Walsall MBC in the West Midlands to Cornwall County Council in the South West.  He also represents companies operating privatised housing estates and arm’s-length management organisations.
