Jamie is a personal injury practitioner.  He accepts instructions to appear on behalf of both Claimants and Defendants in a range of matters, including:

Road traffic accidents (including LVI & fundamental dishonesty)

Recent examples include:

  • S and others v S (2019) – obtained findings that all 3 Claimants were fundamentally dishonest in relation to an LVI. The Judge found as a fact that no personal injury had been occasioned. An enforceable costs order was obtained pursuant to CPR 44.16.
  • P v G (2019) – represented the Defendant in a PI claim in which the Claimant's account, as given to the MedCo doctor and in his witness statement, greatly varied from the contemporaneous records.
  • G v M (2019) – represented the Defendant in relation to a credit hire claim which exceeded £45,000.
  • A v C (2019) – represented the Claimant where the effectiveness of service on a Defendant incorporated and domiciled outside the jurisdiction was in issue.

Employer's liability (with a focus on the effect of s.69 ERRA 2013)

Recent examples include:

  • M v P (2019) – represented the Claimant in a case which turned upon the scope of the duty to keep traffic routes free from obstructions in the post-ERRA landscape. 

Holiday illness

Recent examples include:

  • F v T (2019) – successfully resisted the Claimant's application for pre-action disclosure in a low value holiday illness claim.

Occupiers' liability (including lawful visitors and trespassers)

Recent examples include:

  • T v A (2019) – represented the Defendant café owner after a customer was scalded whilst using their premises.

Highways Act claims

Recent examples include:

  • B v B (2018) – successfully represented the Defendant local authority who relied on the 'special' s.58 defence, when presented with a claim involving a sizeable and dangerous pothole.

Stage 3 hearings

Jamie regularly undertakes Stage 3 assessment of damages hearings and is familiar with the relevant Rules, Protocols and fixed cost regimes.

Alongside his busy court practice, Jamie is often instructed to draft pleadings and provide advice on liability, quantum and procedure. He also has experience of drafting Schedules of Loss in multi-track matters.

Jamie continues to expand his practice and welcomes instruction in any personal injury matter. His clerks can be contacted using the information found here.
