Experience

Warren recently recovered £14M for a 17 year-old female who sustained a brain injury after she was run down when aged 5.

He acted for the claimant in Housley v Christiansen LTLPI 6/1/2010 where damages to pay for a light aircraft and associated costs, (including the cost of renting accommodation with attached airstrip), were recovered by a flying instructor who was unable to continue teaching as a result of his injuries.

He was also the claimant’s solicitor in Cheung v Zhu (t/a Yang Sing Fish and Chip) [2011] EWHC 2913 (QB): an employer’s liability action where the claimant sustained a spinal cord injury, which is now often cited in ‘slip/trip’ cases.
