Ian is a catastrophic injury specialist who regularly acts for British nationals injured abroad as well as foreign nationals injured whilst visiting the UK. He handles a complex caseload of high value, multi-track cases (mostly over £1 million), acting for those who have suffered multiple trauma injuries.
Recent successes include the following:
- £4.4m settlement for 73-year-old client who suffered a severe traumatic brain injury as a result of a road traffic accident in August 2018. In addition to the final settlement, Ian secured funds from the insurers for a full multi-disciplinary rehabilitation package which included a 24/7 care regime provided by specialist brain injury support workers.
- £3.4m settlement for a 45-year-old client who suffered an above knee amputation following a road traffic accident in July 2017. The settlement ensured that his client was able to purchase the most advanced prosthetic limbs available on the market.
- £1.5 settlement for a 47-year-old client who suffered a severe crush injury to his foot as a result of an accident at work. Ian secured a settlement which enabled his client to purchase suitable single level accommodation.
In 2016, Ian won a landmark case following a High Court trial, which involved an award of damages determined by English courts but applying Polish law. The Claimant had suffered a miscarriage following a road traffic accident and received a significant award of damages near £500,000, including the cost of three cycles of IVF treatment.
This year Ian is representing a number of clients in highly complex matters, where damages are anticipated to run into the millions, to include a severe spinal cord injury case involving an uninsured driver and a British holidaymaker who suffered life changing injuries following a quad bike accident in Zante.
