Philip Turton was called to the Bar in 1989.
Philip specialises in all aspects of personal injury and clinical negligence work, with specialist experience of just about every category of case. He specialises particularly in high value and disease cases.
Over the last ten years, Philip has taken on an increasing number of catastrophic injury cases. Recently these have included, a double foot injury, causing crippling disablement in a young nurse, which settled for £1.4million, a serious fracture to the foot and leg of a keen motorcyclist, with real risk of amputation, which settled for £875,000, a birth hypoxia case, ongoing, giving rise to a structured settlement facilitating lifetime housing, rehabilitation and care needs and a “Montgomery” birth case, involving brain injury and complex subsequent diagnoses involving interplay between the original brain injury and a subsequent diagnosis of autism.
Philip has, for many years, advised and acted in complex spinal injury cases, which can range from significant fractures to vertebra, causing ongoing functional interference, through to cases involving paraplegia.
He is a disease specialist, familiar with all categories of this work, including asbestos-related injury, noise-induced hearing loss/tinnitus, hand-arm vibration syndrome, dermatitis, respiratory disease, occupationally induced carcinoma and stress related injury.
