Personal Injury

Matt frequently undertakes advisory, written and court work in personal injury matters, often with an international element. He has particular experience of group action and limitation issues, and was instructed at all levels up to the Supreme Court in the Nuclear Test Veterans Group Litigation (led by Charles Gibson QC). He is currently instructed by the MOD in a number of personal injury claims arising out of active operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, in which the MOD relies on the doctrine of combat immunity.
