Sam works in JMW’s Personal Injury team as an Associate.  He has been with the firm since July 2007. Before joining the firm, Sam completed the Bar Vocational Course in Manchester.

Sam deals with a wide variety of personal injury matters, including injury sustained as a result of accidents at work, claims against highways authorities involving trips and slips, road traffic accidents, defective products claims and criminal assault claims through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.  

In his spare time, Sam is attempting to learn Cantonese. He is also a keen walker and has climbed 13 Munros to date. He is hoping to complete the remaining 270 at some point in the future! 

Why did you join JMW?
I joined JMW because I was looking for a job in a well-respected firm.  I stayed because of the friendly atmosphere and vast expertise which the team is able to offer.



Road traffic accidents

Accidents at work

Highways tripping cases

Product liability claims

Key cases

  • I was able to successfully gain £40,000 on behalf of a client who was injured after falling down a broken manhole cover.  The client has permanent back and knee injuries as a result of the fall. 
  • One of my clients tripped over a defective footpath.  They sustained a fractured ankle and needed open reduction internal fixation surgery leading to a risk of future surgery being needed and an increased potential for early osteoarthritis.  I was able to gain £13,000 compensation on their behalf. 

What others say

Who would you...

Share a pint with:
If he was still around then I think Keith Floyd would have been a great person to have cook for me, but I reckon he’d also be pretty interesting company for a pint!

Have cook for you:
As Keith Floyd isn't around, I guess I’d have Heston Blumenthal cook for me, as I’d love to go to the Fat Duck one day.

Stay in with:
I’d spend a night in with my girlfriend and my family, or better still, go out and have Heston cook for us all!
