I generally act for clients where a life changing injury has occurred through negligence or where the issues in dispute are particularly complex. These can be everything from road traffic accidents, employment claims or medical negligence. I have acted on behalf of a number of clients who have suffered severe brain injuries resulting in significant ongoing impairment. I am also frequently instructed to represent families where medical negligence has occurred which has resulted in permanent disability or death. In cases where someone has died I am frequently asked to represent the families of the deceased at an inquest.
I am particular passionate about obtaining justice for families when a wrong has occurred and understand that this is often just as important as the financial side.
I have had a number of cases which have been reported in both the regional and national media and I have been interviewed about these appearing on both television and the radio.
Other matters where I have achieved successful outcomes for clients include:
- Securing a £2million pound settlement for a man left brain damaged after a road traffic accident. The Defendant initially offered just £40,000 alleging that the Claimant was exaggerating his injuries.
- Settling a case for £1.3million on behalf of the family of a man killed by a hit and run driver.
- A substantial confidential sum for a Claimant who suffered a traumatic brain injury following a road traffic accident.
- Acting for Keith Tarry in a high profile claim against easyJet.
- £450,000 for a protected party who suffered a brain injury after his a chair he was sitting on collapsed.
- Settling a ‘secondary victim’ case two weeks before trial. Liability was denied on the basis that the Claimant had no right in law to damages but despite this, a favourable settlement was achieved.

“We want to take the opportunity to say the biggest thank you for helping T in winning his case, particularly your diligence and expertise in turning a dire situation into a success, which now allows us as a family the stability we need.”
“From the start to the final end result we found [Ben Davey and Alex Brown] to be professional, precise, communicative and very knowledgeable in their field of expertise. Little or nothing was too much for them, they accommodated our every need especially in terms of visiting our home to oversee business since my husband was housebound with little mobility due to a serious accident at work.”
