Significant Legal Experience

McLaughlin –v- Morrison and Esure (assisted in while trainee)

A multi million pound claim for his client as Guardian of her nephew who was left catastrophically brain damaged after deliberately being hit by a car driven by the first defender. Lord Jones in the Court of Session rejected the claim the victim had provoked the assault and also held that there was no contributory negligence on his part and thus should be awarded damages with no deductions. Settlement followed thereafter for undisclosed damages.
