Mike Cummings has experience in various types of litigation work. Since the mid-1980’s he has specialised in personal injury, clinical negligence and claims against other Solicitors for mishandling of this type of claim. He has a wealth experience of representing clients with catastrophic injuries, both spinal and head injuries and in some cases both. He has had cases referred to him from a number of sources including Headway and the Spinal Injuries Association. He has also served as Deputy Chairman of a local Headway branch.
Mike is part of the specialised Clinical Negligence Team and represents clients in complex multi-track cases relating to both medical and dental claims. He is also an integral part of the Military Injury Claims Team dealing with both civil claims against the Ministry of Defence and processing claims under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme.
Mike’s in-depth knowledge in these areas, coupled with his many years of experience of representing clients in complex cases, puts him in a position where he is able to recover the maximum amount of compensation to reflect not only the injury his client has received but also the ongoing care and rehabilitation they are likely to need and any future lost earnings.
He feels the most rewarding aspect of the job is winning a court trial for a client when the client’s claim is disputed and successfully awarding damages to them that will change their lives for the better.
