David is a member of the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence teams, and joined Chambers following the successful completion of his pupillage under the supervision of Matthew White and Ben Handy. His busy and growing practice involves both court work and paperwork for both claimants and defendants.
He is frequently instructed in small claims, disposals and fast-track matters as well as interim applications, and infant settlement approval hearings. During his pupillage David was exposed to most (if not all) areas of personal injury practice, including highways law, employer’s liability, occupier’s liability, travel claims, defective premises, contributory negligence in road traffic accidents and inquests. He has developed a particular interest in highways law having worked closely with his supervisor Matthew White in the case of Barlow v Wigan Council  EWHC 1546 (QB).
Having volunteered for 18 months at the Bristol Law Centre he is adept at dealing with clients and witnesses from all walks of life and is an experienced and natural advocate. His written advice is thorough and tactically focussed and he is happy to accept work on a CFA basis.
