Grant is a specialist in life-changing and fatal injury cases and is able to advise Claimants and their families regardless of how those injuries were sustained thanks to wide experience across road traffic collisions, employers and public liability, criminal injuries and clinical negligence.

He joined the partnership at Kingsley Napley in April 2021 having led the Serious Cycling Injuries team at Leigh Day for five years. Prior to that Grant spent almost seven years with Stewarts Law working only on cases of the utmost severity, and Irwin Mitchell before that in the Clinical Negligence and Neurotrauma team in London.

He is prominent for his expertise in Cycling-related injuries and his knowledge of such cases in the context of road traffic collisions and breaches of the Highways Act 1980 (“pothole cases”) is extensive.

Between 2016 and 2020 Grant represented the Claimant in Swift v Carpenter [2018] EWHC 2060 (QB); [2020] EWCA Civ 1295. The case is celebrated in the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence world, having changed the law on the assessment of damages for accommodation for seriously injured people, meaning that fairer compensation will now be assured. The Claimant had to seek judgment in the Court of Appeal in that regard but Grant also assisted her in achieving helpful judgments for Claimants on a number of other issues of quantification of damages following the original High Court trial.

Grant is recognised in the legal directories, including Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 with increasing praise and received the prestigious accolade of being named The Times Lawyer of the Week  and Law Society Gazette Lawyer in the News  in October 2020 for his work in Swift.

His work in cycling-related incidents particularly has resulted in vast experience of the issues around and quantification of fatal injuries cases, representing many families in the worst of situations and achieving optimal damages awards to protect spouses’ and dependants’ financial futures, having lost loved ones.

He is dedicated to helping injured Claimants and their families use the law to build their lives again after injury through obtaining the earliest possible rehabilitation and financial assistance. He enjoys nothing more than ensuring his clients get access to the accommodation, equipment and therapy they need to get home, back to work and thriving again as soon as they are ready.
