Grant has vast experience of the issues around, and quantification of, catastrophic and fatal injury cases. Practiced in representing families in the worst of situations, Grant works vigorously to achieve optimal damages awards to protect spouses’ and dependents’ financial futures.

Early intervention with a strong focus on rehabilitation is central to Grant’s approach for his clients. There is an immediate window of opportunity to implement rehabilitation such that it maximises the client’s chances of returning as fully as possible to their life pre-injury. The earlier rehabilitation starts, the better in order to achieve the best possible outcome. Each case turns on its merits, but where it is possible to establish some early contact with the defendant (usually an insurer), an early admission of liability and a simple agreement can enable us to secure an interim payment that will help fund and implement a vital rehabilitation package, while the claim itself is being sorted out. The benefits can be significant, serving to rebuild not just the lives of clients but also their families.

Grant is someone who will give his heart and soul and go the extra mile; he’s responsive and swift in his dealings and nothing is too much effort for him. Chambers and Partners
