Clinical Negligence, Product Liability, Professional Negligence, Personal Injury, and Inquests
Jonathan has built up a busy and varied clinical negligence practice and examples of his recent caseload include being instructed as sole counsel in claims arising from alleged birth injuries, such as cerebral palsy, amputation claims, injuries arising from bariatric surgery, injuries arising from failures to diagnose and treat kidney and liver diseases, late diagnosis of cancer claims and claims arising from cosmetic surgery procedures. He has successfully pursued claims advanced on the basis of systemic failures by Trusts that have then led to injuries to patients, e.g. by failing to adequately staff maternity units. He is also frequently instructed in claims against dentist and ophthalmic professionals. He has a particular interest in inquest work and he frequently acts for bereaved families. Jonathan undertakes a wide variety of professional negligence and personal injury litigation. In recent years he has developed a significant product liability practice, and he was one of the junior counsel acting for the Claimants in the 4 month trial of the Pinnacle Metal-on-metal hip GLO reported as Gee v DePuy International Limited (2018).
