James MCarthy

I provide assistance to those who have suffered very serious and often life-threatening injuries. This is a particularly rewarding and motivating aspect of the job by virtue of the fact that we are seeking to establish a foundation upon which these individuals can start rebuilding their lives. It is important to recognise that in addition to obtaining compensation, clients require the necessary help, care and support to allow them the best possible chance of proceeding with a positive future.

Pursuing a legal claim is often a very stressful and overwhelming experience for clients. Therefore, it is vital to adopt an individualised and considered approach in every case by acknowledging that the wants and needs of each client may be different. By providing a personable and approachable service, the client’s specific concerns can be more easily identified and therefore quickly addressed, reducing any added pressures that litigation may bring.

Significant Cases

Assisted in achieving a multi-million pound settlement for a client who suffered a catastrophic injury from a road traffic accident.
