Dorian is a Solicitor who has specialised in serious and catastrophic personal injury and medical negligence actions over the last 20 years. After qualifying as a Solicitor in 1995 he developed expertise in industrial injury and disease claims acting for trade union clients. He joined Freeman Johnson in 2000 and works at our Darlington office. His caseload now comprises mainly medical negligence cases.
My medical negligence caseload encompasses a broad spectrum of cases, pursuing claims where errors were made by the NHS against Hospital Trusts, private clinics, GP practices, Walk-in centres and Nursing Homes. I enjoy a close working relationship with Barristers and medical experts so as to ensure the best possibility of a successful outcome.
My particular specialities and experience are in the following type of cases:
In personal injury cases I have acted for claimants who have unfortunately sustained serious brain, spinal and orthopaedic trauma. This requires close liaison with various medical specialities to assist in the provision of rehabilitation. I have also represented families of the bereaved following fatal road traffic accidents. Clients have instructed me in sexual abuse claims where Legal Aid is still available, subject to assessment. In other cases I represent clients on a “no win no fee” arrangement (known as a Conditional Fee Agreement) or through legal expenses insurance.
Over the years I have acted for business clients in litigation, representing both Claimants and Defendants in commercial disputes and breach of contract.
In my spare time I am often found hiking in the Lake District or the Dales or enjoying the beautiful north east coast.
