This is the first part of a four-part mini-series dealing with the key stages of the litigation process in a catastrophic injury claim.

Partner Daniel Herman examined the early stages in the life of a catastrophic injury case from meeting the client and their family, ascertaining immediate needs and establishing funding, choosing a case manager and single versus joint instruction.

About the speaker –  Daniel Herman, Partner

Since 1999, Daniel has only acted for clients with very serious injuries. Most of his clients have sustained a spinal cord injury or a brain injury. He has particular expertise in cross-border cases: acting on behalf of British clients injured overseas or foreign nationals injured in the UK.

Daniel has been involved in more than 60 cases in which the claimant received compensation in excess of £1m.

Described by Chambers as “an utterly first class lawyer” and by The Legal 500 as “highly knowledgeable”, Daniel was also the first-ever Association of Personal Injury Lawyer accredited spinal cord injury specialist solicitor.
