Specialisms

Adam has recently successfully resolved or handled cases concerning birth injuries, brain injuries, spinal injuries, renal injuries, delay in diagnosis of cancer, cardiac diseases, gynaecology treatments, wrongly reported radiology cases, mistreatment of orthopaedic injuries, drug overdoses and drug interaction cases.

Notable Cases

Adam has experience of running cases on behalf of individuals and in relation to large group actions. One group action of note was one which was highly publicised where he acted for a large group of Claimants who allege that they had received negligent treatment from a Consultant Urologist, who had appeared on the ‘Embarrassing Bodies’ TV programme.

Another case to note is one which involved a young girl who sustained hypoxic brain injury shortly before her birth. As a result she was born severely disabled with cerebral palsy and she required around the clock care. The Defendant Trust admitted liability and the level of damages awarded to her, which was a multimillion award, was used to provide her with more suitable accommodation and an intensive care regime.

Interests

Outside of work Adam enjoys kayaking and cycling.
