Hatt v Hertfordshire County Council (2014)
Carwyn acted for the Defendant in this matter that arose as a result of an assault at school.

Oliveira (2011)
Carwyn attended this inquest representing the employer of the Deceased who passed away as a result of a fatal accident that occurred on the Construction Site of another. This was a multiple day inquest before a Jury. Following on from this Carwyn acted for the same company in the civil claim.

McClean-Brian (2010)
Carwyn acted for the family of a young mother that was killed in a road traffic accident. This was a particularly harrowing case given the ages of the Deceased and her children, and the fact that a good friend of the Deceased was driving the car in which she had the accident. Carwyn went on to represent the family in the Civil Claim, which was a complicated fatal accident case that resulted in a substantial settlement for the family.

HSE v DLCE (2010)
Carwyn was again led by Patrick Harrington QC in the HSE Prosecution arising from the accident referred to in the previous entry. They successfully had the Prosecution stayed as an abuse of process.

HSE v North Kent Shotblasting (2010)
Carwyn acted for the Director of the Defendant in this case that arose as a result of a fatal accident at the premises of the Defendant company. As a result of the basis of plea that Carwyn worked on with the representatives of the company the Prosecution discontinued their prosecution of the Defendant. Carwyn then went on to represent the Company in the civil claim.
