Previous examples of work or case studies:
- David acted for a client, Mike Just, who suffered a life-changing spinal cord injury following an accident while working on a construction site when a door lintel fell onto his back causing serious spinal cord injury, leaving him unable to walk and dependent on a wheelchair. He was no longer able to work on a building site. A claim was brought against the owner and project manager of the building project, who denied liability for the accident. Mike ultimately received a seven-figure settlement which enabled him to purchase suitable accommodation, transport, support work, physiotherapy , occupational therapy and private medical treatment. He was also able to purchase equipment allowing him to take part in the outdoor activities he enjoyed before his accident.
