Personal injury specialist Phil is Head of Personal Injury at Thompsons Solicitors.

Qualifying as a solicitor in 1998, Phil has used his wealth of legal knowledge and experience to expertly handle high-value cases of up to seven figures, which include head injuries, amputations, fatal accidents, multiple orthopaedic injuries, psychiatric and chronic pain conditions.

Phil’s case experience

  • Settled a case for £2.2 million for a firefighter who suffered life-changing injuries after he went into a burning house to rescue a family. This was the biggest-ever settlement for a UK firefighter.
  • Obtained over £750,000 for a paramedic who suffered relatively minor physical injuries in an RTA but developed a neuropathic condition requiring a spinal cord stimulator and was able to continue working in their chosen career. 
  • Secured £500,000 for a worker at a recycling plant who had his hand crushed by machinery and needed a partial amputation.
