Personal Injury & Clinical Negligence

Thomas acts for claimants and defendants on fast and multi-track claims on matters of liability, quantum, costs and procedure. His work ranges from providing pre-action advice to drafting, conducting interim applications, and appearing at trial.

Recent cases have involved: determining the claimant’s ‘employer’ and applying the tests for the alternative bases of liability under the health and safety regulations; a local authority’s liability for a dangerous defect on the highway; employer’s liability for an unsafe system of maintenance work; occupier’s liability for spillages in a nightclub; split liability for a motorway road traffic accident; costs budgeting in a multi-track claim involving complex orthopaedic evidence; and the assessment of general and special damages for burn injuries and complex dental injuries sustained by two young children.

Thomas is a member of the Personal Injuries Bar Association and is happy to accept instructions on a conditional fee basis where appropriate.

Credit Hire

Thomas is regularly instructed by claimants and defendants in proceedings involving claims for credit hire charges, often in addition to other heads of loss including personal injuries. Thomas has particular experience of the operation of the Cancellation of Contracts made in a Consumer’s Home or Place of Work etc. Regulations 2008 and the analysis of rates evidence (including cross-examination of the authors of rates reports).
