Serious Injuries Abroad

Gerard is routinely instructed to represent those who suffer brain, spinal and other serious injuries in accidents both in the UK and abroad.   Examples of his case results can be found here.

Gerard is more than aware of the additional difficulties faced by those who have been injured overseas. After any serious accident, individuals and their families have to turn their minds to:

  • The immediate clinical needs of the injured and the cost of dealing with those needs
  • Travel insurance issues
  • Repatriation
  • Liaison with clinical services on return
  • Liaison with medical experts for the purpose of the claim
  • Understanding very different legal processes.

Gerard is recommended in the UK Bar Guide for his expertise in Travel Law. He has an increasing number of cases with a cross border element to them. He also has specialist knowledge of conflicts of law and has been instructed in some of the leading cases in this area.

Whilst Gerard acts in a number of Personal Injury cases, he also has experience in a number of other areas of law including Product Liability, Employment Law and Commercial Law. As a result, he is happy to advise clients in a broad range of disputes arising overseas.
