Adam also sits as a part-time Assistant Coroner for Birmingham and Solihull.

 

Recent Cases

Adam has recently represented the family of a man who suffered an avoidable ruptured brain aneurysm, who was left catastrophically disabled as a result. Adam successfully sued the Hospital Trust responsible and managed to obtain a full admission of breach of duty, paving the way for a settlement.

Adam has also recently represented a client who suffered a 17-month delay in diagnosing stomach cancer, which sadly has left the client with a terminal prognosis. Adam was able to prove that earlier intervention would have led to the clients’ cancer being treated and cured, and as a result the Hospital Trust responsible admitted negligence.
