Lionel has a High Court and multi-track practice specialising in personal injury, clinical negligence and health & safety with complementary expertise in aviation and product liability (particularly in the context of prosthetic and medical/surgical equipment failures, as well as aviation and light aircraft accidents). He combines robust advocacy where required with a focused ‘team’ approach to litigation, tactical insight for JSMs and mediations and the ability to manage clients in challenging cases or where difficult messages need to be delivered.
He is regularly instructed in catastrophic injury cases, as well as those involving serious brain or head injuries, loss of limbs/limb amputations, fusion surgery, hip replacement surgery, chronic pain and/or resulting in other significant disability. His general practice encompasses injury arising out of defective products; and he is well versed in claims for serious bodily injury arising out of domestic and international aviation accidents and other claims with a foreign element, including complex dependency claims arising out of the Germanwings disaster.
Lionel’s clinical negligence practice incorporates factually complicated claims arising out of obstetric and gynaecological injuries, diagnostic failures (such as compartment syndrome, as well as cancer and MCL cases), negligent treatment of post-surgical infections leading to kidney failure, negligent surgery, failure to diagnose retinal detachment, failure to convey to hospital, failure to refer or diagnose (such as meningitis, sepsis and encephalitis), negligent nursing care of vulnerable patients, and failure correctly to advise of surgical risks or alternative treatment (application of Montgomery).
