Personal Injury & Clinical Negligence
During pupillage at 3PB, Tom received comprehensive training in clinical negligence and personal injury law under the guidance of Hamish Dunlop.
Tom continues to develop upon those skills and now enjoys an ever-growing practice in both PI and clinical negligence. He has a particular strength in advocacy and is instructed in a range of court hearings including county court trials, civil application hearings and case management. Tom acts for claimants and defendants across the spectrum of personal injury litigation.
Tom is regularly instructed to advise on liability and quantum and to settle pleadings where necessary.
In addition to his own developing practice, Tom has worked closely with one of the largest ATE insurers in the UK, assessing the merits of a multitude of cases concerning areas such as clinical negligence, breach of confidence, asbestosis, occupiers’ liability and accidents at work.
Tom has a particular interest in clinical standards and medical ethics owing to the fact that his father practices as a GP and both his uncle and aunt are psychiatrists.
Tom will consider acting under a conditional fee agreement in appropriate cases.
