Personal Injury

Karamjit is known for his balanced advice which gives lay and professional clients realistic choices when deciding the merits of their case.

Karamjit regularly proofs and test witnesses for the Claimant and Defendant and advises in high value factually sensitive cases. He has been instructed to represent, for example, victims who have come forward as a result of Operation Yewtree, which was the Police investigation set up following the investigation into sexual abuse committed by Jimmy Savile.

On the whole Karamjit has a broad civil practice covering the most common areas of personal injury cases. However, he has a particular interest in sporting injuries due to his passion for basketball having been a member of Shropshire’s County Basketball Team. Karamjit has dealt with a number of cases of sportsmen and women suffering injury at the hands of other players or due to the negligence of organisers.

Notable Cases

P Stanley v P Walkden [2017]

P Stanley v P Walkden [2017] Miss Stanley was employed by the ambulance service. After finishing her shift, she was returning home from work. A vehicle being driven by the defendant and travelling the other opposite direction to her decided to overtake the vehicle in front. A collision took place between Miss Stanley’s vehicle and the Defendant’s. Miss Stanley suffered life changing injuries. Karamjit advised on the case in conference, which eventually settled for £950,000.

R Pearson v Demma Services [2016]
Karamjit secured damages of £325,000 following a JSM. The loss of earnings claim was the most contentious given the conflicting medical evidence. The Claimant was extremely satisfied with the result.

M Priamo v E Thompson [2016]
Mr Priamo suffered soft tissue injuries following a RTA. Karamjit was able to negotiate a settlement of £90,000 where there was a significant risk the Claimant could have recovered far less due to his employment history.

R Goobier v D Chittock [2013]
Roy Goobier was a cyclist riding at a high level. On average covering approximately 12,000 miles a year and participating in speed racing. Unfortunately, he suffered significant injuries in a road traffic accident. Working closely with his solicitors at a JSM, Karamjit secured a settlement of £250,000 in damages, which was 85% of that which was claimed.

M Hussain v R Shepherd v Provident Insurance Plc [2010]
The Claimant suffered injury in a road traffic accident. Karamjit represented him at a JSM and secured a settlement of £130,000.

L Williams v Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform [2009]
The Claimant claimed damages for noise induced hearing loss while working for the National Coal Board. The Defendant claimed that the claim was statute barred. Karamjit successfully represented the Claimant at the limitation hearing.

G Lodge v K Sargeant [2008]
Karamjit successfully appeared on behalf of the Claimant in a claim for damages arising out of a road traffic accident and helped to secure an award of £80,000.  The issue in the case was whether the injury in question was an acceleration of a pre-existing condition or not.

I Cockle v Balfour Beatty [2008]
Karamjit successfully appeared on behalf of the Defendant in the Claimant’s claim for damages arising from an accident at work on a building site.  The Claimant’s claim was based in negligence and under the provisions of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
