Personal injury specialist Martin is based out of Thompsons Solicitors’ Newcastle office and covers cases across Cumbria and the north east.

Part of Thompsons’ accidents at work team, Martin deals with claims involving workplace injury, public liability and road traffic accidents.

With over a quarter of a century’s experience as a solicitor, Martin combines his extensive legal know-how and impressive litigation skills with an open and down-to-earth demeanour.

Martin’s daily duties consist of managing a mixed case load made up of predominantly multi-track claims of more than £25,000.

Often dealing with accident cases involving multiple plaintiffs, orthopaedic and psychological injuries and fatalities, Martin is proud to have never represented defendants during his career, only claimants.

For Martin the best thing about working at Thompsons is the fact the firm shares his dedication to providing justice and redress for working people.

In his spare time, Martin takes part in clay pigeon shooting and enjoys DIY.

Martin's Case Experience

Accident at Work Claim: Martin represented the widow of man who fell to his death while at work. After beginning litigation, Martin ensured his client received a six figure sum for the death of her husband.

Road Accident Claim: Martin’s client was run over and subsequently trapped underneath a car on a pedestrian crossing. Her injuries were so severe that she was unable to find paid work again and her home life was badly affected. After the defendant admitted liability, Martin secured damages of £700,000 for his client.
