Personal Injury

Pritesh is very experienced in personal injury work, which still forms a significant part of his practice. He represents both claimants and defendants in a variety of personal injury claims, including road traffic accidents, employers’ liability and public liability claims. He is willing to consider instructions on a CFA basis.

Pritesh also represents claimants before the First-Tier Tribunal in relation to appeals against CICA awards, particularly in cases where claimants have suffered head injuries.

Selected Cases

  • JM v CICA (2017): Assisted in the preparation of the appeal of a man who suffered a severe brain injury following what was thought to be an assault to which there were no witnesses. The CICA argued that the claimant had not proved that he was the victim of an assault. The Tribunal found that the claimant was eligible for an award.
  • GM v CICA (2016): Represented a man seriously who suffered a severe brain injury following an assault, leaving him with serious neuropsychological issues for which he required care and assistance. Recovered maximum award under the Scheme.
  • Inquest Touching Upon the Death of William Avery-Wright (2013, West Sussex Coroner’s Court): Represented the family of William Avery-Wright, a 13 year old pupil at Worth School, who was killed after a collision with a motor vehicle when crossing a 60mph road between two school sites. The Coroner concluded that the school’s rule that pupils in the boy’s year group should not cross the road without adult supervision “was not enforced or adhered to”.
