Additional Expertise

Jim has also represented workers in the nursing and care sectors with serious back and other strain injuries due to poor moving and handling practices and office workers with RSI from undertaking intensive typing or data entry for prolonged periods in the working day. These claims have included a number of hard-fought test cases.


I spoke to a few solicitors who didn't want to take it on because it was for an international company. There was more paperwork rather than it being simple. Jim took it running and put the hard work in, we got a settlement just before it was going to go to court. It worked out better than I thought.

A client, Jan 2020

Jim was fantastic. He always kept me informed over a long period of time. He couldn’t have been more professional and more understanding. He went into a lot of depth and did a lot of investigating to get the evidence we needed. I would recommend Jim and Blake Morgan 100%.
