Ewan specialises in brain and spinal injuries for adults and children arising from all different types of accidents including road traffic accidents, accidents at work and assaults.

Ewan is the joint coordinator for the APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) Yorkshire Region Group. He helps facilitate seminars and webinars to fellow APIL peers in the Yorkshire region.

He is also a trustee and chair of Headway Rotherham, a charity catering for brain injury survivors in that locality.

Ewan is an accredited ‘Senior Litigator’ and ‘Brain Injury’ specialist with APIL in recognition of his skills and experience in personal injury and brain injury litigation.


Clients have said that Ewan is caring, hard-working and responsive. Clients can expect to receive legal advice in a manner that is easy to understand, as well as feeling in control of the process.


Ewan has extensive experience in catastrophic injury cases and has led and settled his own cases whilst supporting on higher value brain injury claims. He mainly works on cases where the damages exceed £1m but also is adept in working on moderate brain injury claims where there are causation issues.

Ewan is experienced in cases where clients require a large multi-disciplinary rehabilitation team and enjoys helping to facilitate these through the claim and mapping a client’s journey to recovery.

Ewan is also experienced and adept in taking over cases from other firms, where clients have not received the level of service required, or where the direction of the claim is not where it should be. Ewan works tenaciously in getting to know the client quickly and building up the evidential narrative, in order for the client’s case to “catch-up”. One example includes where a client fell down a flight of stairs, due to an unlocked door in public premises. That client had been with a previous solicitor whereby no private rehabilitation team had been put together after many months and the client was in dire financial straits due to no interim payments. Ewan and the team worked quickly to rectify that before eventually going on to settle the client’s claim in excess of £1m.

"Ewan was great from start to finish. I had a lot of questions which were answered, and which were answered immediately. He was super knowledgeable and kept me up to date on everything I needed to know. Without his help I don’t know what I would have done. The team were also great as I spoke to a few different people. I would highly recommend this company if anyone ever needed anything in the future.”
