Senior Associate (CILEx)
I'm proud and privileged to have spent the last 20 years representing both bereaved families and clients who have suffered life changing injuries as a result of a road traffic collision. I'm passionate about securing early rehabilitation treatment and interim payments to enable my clients to begin to rebuild their lives.
Get to know Daniel
I'm a qualified Chartered Legal Executive and began my legal career in 2000, working for a trade union law firm, which had an excellent reputation in the personal injury market. I joined Fentons Solicitors in 2010 which was acquired by Slater and Gordon in 2013.
I have a wealth of experience in most areas of personal injury law including road traffic collisions, accidents at work, accidents that occur in public places and accidents involving faulty products.
I specialise in cases where my client has suffered injuries of the utmost severity such as an amputation, head injury, spinal cord injury, serious psychiatric injury or serious orthopaedic injury. I also represent bereaved families.
I have been recognised in the Legal 500 2022 edition as a Key Lawyer.
I have secured a compensation settlement of £3 million for a motorcyclist who suffered life changing injuries including a below knee amputation. The early settlement enabled the motorcyclist to move to adapted accommodation with his family, undertake the best possible rehabilitation including specifically adapted prosthetics and gave him the financial security to support himself and his family in their future.
I was also the first legal executive at Fentons Solicitors to be promoted to an associate before being promoted again to a senior associate.
Excellent service so far with my personal injury claim. They have kept me informed throughout. Very friendly to deal with. Client testimonial (for Daniel Denton)
The service I received from Slater and Gordon, in particular, Daniel Denton was completely outstanding throughout. Daniel was not only professional and patient, he was also compassionate, considerate, and always took the time to explain things thoroughly. I have a significant amount of gratitude to Daniel and I would not hesitate to put my trust in him again. I would highly recommend this firm based on the professionalism, support, and care they have provided. Client testimonial (for Daniel Denton)
I'm glad I chose Slater and Gordon to represent me. Daniel Denton has guided me and represented me throughout this lengthy case. I now regard him like a friend. He's worked very hard to win my claim and kept me informed all the time. Very thorough, honest and professional. Client testimonial (for Daniel Denton)
