We mainly focus on high value catastrophic injury cases, particularly those involving brain, spine and amputation injuries, and fatalities. Last year we concluded a number of multi-million pound settlements and recovered tens of millions of pounds in damages, whilst also ensuring our clients receive early access to rehabilitation.
Many of our cases receive extensive media coverage, often because we are instructed by high-profile figures in sport, the media and the film industry. Other cases have been in the media spotlight because they have highlighted safety issues or matters of public concern, or because they are matters of broader public interest, both nationally and abroad.
We offer specialist expertise in several niche areas of personal injury practice. 5 out of our 9 teams, led by Richard Geraghty, focus on UK-based serious injury litigation; 3 teams led by Demetrius Danas deal with international serious injury litigation; and a further team deals with workplace disease claims.
We have numerous specialist industry accreditations with over 20 APIL accredited personal injury litigators, including 4 APIL fellows, and 10 APIL specialist accreditations in brain or spinal injury. Our team also holds a broad range of linguistic skills, including fluent Spanish, French, Dutch, Greek and Russian speakers.
