Experience Profile

Paul is an Associate Solicitor within the Serious Injury team in Manchester. 

He has had widespread experience since commencing practice in 2000 and has conducted claims for both minor and more severe injuries arising out of road traffic accidents, employers liability, public liability, criminal injuries and defective products and services.

Paul now primarily acts for claimants whom are seriously injured in road traffic accidents or for the estate and dependants in fatal accidents.

  • Multiple high value cases where police officers have had to medically retire due to injury 
  • High value fatal accident claims

  • Polytrauma cases and cases including serious orthopaedic, psychiatric and pain syndromes, amongst others 
  • Cases involving varying degrees of brain injury 

Paul believes in securing early rehabilitation for seriously injured claimants, recognising the importance that this plays in achieving the best outcomes and will seek to work with appropriate professionals to best pursue the best interests of claimants. 

In addition to his role at Slater and Gordon, Paul is a trustee of Headway Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde, a charity representing the interests of those with acquired brain injury.
