Personal Injury Solicitor
Jon heads up the teams in Manchester and Liverpool that handle Personal Injury cases for USDAW and UNITE members.
He has nearly 30 years’ experience in this area of law and has dealt with personal injury cases in the Courts and Employment Tribunals.
Jon has dealt with all types of employment and work-related injuries, including individual accidents and complex conditions such as neurological injuries, Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome and Noise Induced Hearing Loss.
He is proud of his record of helping union members recover compensation for an Accident at Work and occupational conditions and diseases throughout his career, and recognises that each case presents its own unique challenges.
Jon recently recovered a six-figure amount of compensation for a client who had suffered a serious Head Injury in an accident at work where there was no direct witness evidence about the incident, and the client had no recollection of what happened due to severe memory loss related to his injuries. To succeed, Jon had to carry out a painstaking and thorough investigation to steadily construct a winning case from secondary sources of evidence.
Interests Outside of Work
Jon is a keen fell runner and a cyclist, and is a member of Rossendale Harriers Athletic Club and the Fell Runners Association. He regularly competes in fell races throughout Great Britain and Ireland, including The Mournes Seven Sevens, The Isle of Jura Fell Race, The Edale Skyline, The Snowdon Race and The Ben Nevis Race.
