Tim specialises in personal injury and employment law. He has a busy paper practice and is a very experienced trial advocate.
As a personal injury specialist for many years, predominantly acting for claimants, Tim has experience of a vast array of litigation. In addition to frequent instructions in claims arising out of accidents at work, public liability cases and road traffic accident claims, he advises and appears regularly in a wide variety of industrial disease claims, including those involving noise induced hearing loss, hand arm vibration syndrome, work related upper limb disorders, asbestos-related and other respiratory illnesses, skin complaints and stress at work. Tim has also worked on a large number of sporting injury cases, claims in respect of accidents suffered while on holiday, cases arising out of cosmetic treatment including hair styling, claims following attacks by animals and various product liability claims.
Particularly within his industrial disease practice, and occasionally in other personal injury claims, Tim undertakes advisory and oral advocacy work in relation to limitation issues. He is also frequently consulted with regard to procedural issues generally.
Tim's employment practice complements the industrial aspect of his personal injury work. He undertakes claims relating to unfair/wrongful dismissal, discrimination and equal pay; restrictive covenant and confidentiality disputes; internal disciplinary hearings; and trade union and industrial relations. He has substantial experience of acting for employers and employees in individual and collective disputes.
