David gave me confidence throughout and made the process much easier. He was always on the ball and available to speak. He explained everything to me and reduced my worry, a real rock. I would strongly recommend David to anyone with a serious injury like me. A nice man to deal with but tough on the other side when needed.Close quote

David recovered more than ten times the original offer [from a London law firm]... This has made a huge difference to my life, this has meant that I have not had to worry from a financial perspective. I would wholly recommend David to anyone, he gets a 10/10.Close quote
Police officer who sustained a lifelong brain injury whilst working

I had a worksite accident which resulted in a severe head injury, David Healy took my case on against 3 other defendants. I could have not chosen such an experienced helpful person for my case. It was a very torrid time for 3 and a half years but David Healy got me the best experts, the best care team available but more so than anything settled my case out of court with the best possible outcome a few months ago. David and his team were there with me in my darkest hours. I would recommend David at Lester Aldridge all day long.Close quote
Trustpilot review
Open Quote
Some two years ago, as executor of my sister's will, I consulted Lester Aldridge about making a compensation claim for significant inheritance tax losses incurred when my sister was killed by a careless and very elderly driver who mounted the pavement and crushed her against a wall. The claim has been expertly and energetically led in the past year by David Healy, resulting in a very satisfactory outcome without the case having to go to court.Close quote

Recent work

  • 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 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.
  • Negligent delay in performing an emergency C-section causing the death of one twin and cerebral palsy in the other.
  • GP’s negligent failure to recognise the clinical signs of an acoustic neuroma.  The errors caused the claimant’s loss of sight and left-sided Bell’s palsy.
  • Fall from helicopter causing a severe brain injury. The fall was caused by the negligent act of a colleague.
  • Several cases for children hit on bicycles causing very severe brain injuries.
  • Clamant injured by a horse with a known tendency to bolt. The defendant should have made the claimant aware of this. As a result the claimant sustained a high level spinal cord injury leaving her paralysed from the neck down.
