Notable Cases


Aziz v Rehmat and Rabia Educational Trust (Ongoing)
Carwyn acts for the Claimant in this multi-track matter proceeding in the High Court. He is being led by Rhiannon Jones QC. The Claimant was knocked over by a car suffering serious injuries, including a significant brain injury. Liability is currently disputed. In addition, complex arguments in respect of quantum are anticipated, in particular around the issue of capacity.

Mangle (Ongoing)
Carwyn acts for the nightclub in this matter arising from the acid attack perpetrated by Arthur Collins in April 2017. Claims have been intimated by several individuals allegedly hit by the acid that was thrown. The case is likely to be complex exploring the extent of the duty of care owed by a nightclub to its patrons, the availability of an independent contractor defence and issues of vicarious liability. In addition, the individuals involved have been affected in different ways with varying degrees of severity of injury. This matter is at an early stage.

P v AB (Ongoing)
Carwyn is currently acting on behalf of a local authority. The Claimant developed CRPS Type 1 following an accident that took place. Liability is not disputed, but causation and the extent of any ongoing symptoms are concerned is. The matter is currently scheduled for a 5-day trial in September.

Davies v Tanant Valley Scaffolding (Ongoing)
Carwyn acts for the Claimant in this matter who was injured when he fell through the roof of a barn that he was working on suffering a fracture to the spine. Contributory negligence and quantum remain in issue.

Abellio London Limited v Ahuja and Ahuja (2018)
Carwyn represented Abellio in this matter arising from a road traffic accident. Whilst liability for the accident itself was not disputed the Defendant’s case was that it was so minor that the Claimants could not possibly have suffered any injury at all. At the trial in the County Court the claims brought by Mr and Mrs Ahuja were dismissed and they were found to be fundamentally dishonest. Abellio then commenced committal proceedings. The contempt was admitted.

Re: Pop (Ongoing)
A fatal accident at work where the deceased was crushed by the load that he was delivering. Carwyn is currently instructed on behalf of an interested party in this inquest. There are several interested parties in this matter with the inquest considering the complex delivery network and opportunities to check the suitability of the load prior to the accident. Carwyn has attended several pre-inquest reviews in this matter with the full inquest scheduled to take place towards the end of the year.

Re Gemmill [2017]
A fatal road traffic accident. The Deceased was a cyclist killed by a lorry on a roundabout at the western end of Lambeth Bridge. Carwyn represented a local authority. The inquest considered the design of the roundabout and its suitability for cyclists and traffic to move around it safely. The verdict was returned as one of accidental death.

Barrie v TFL (2015)
Carwyn represented the Defendant in this case arising from a tripping accident. The Claimant suffered significant injuries to her wrist as a result of the accident and there was a high value care claim. Liability was disputed and Carwyn successfully defended the claim.

Quigley (2015)
Carwyn is currently working towards an inquest in September and is representing the family of the deceased who was killed in an accident at work. This is going to take several days and will be before a Jury.

Hatt v Hertfordshire County Council (2014)
Carwyn acted for the Defendant in this matter that arose as a result of an assault at school. The Claimant was claiming a substantial amount as a result of the psychological impact of the assault and other alleged incidents of bullying suffered. The claim was dismissed as the Claimant failed to establish that the school had breached their duty of care to the Claimant.

Gartside v Dew Piling & Ors (2014)
Carwyn represented the Defendant in this case where the Claimant suffered a traumatic amputation to his forefoot. Carwyn represented the Defendant at an interlocutory hearing and then at the JSM where the claim settled.

Ventura v Ceva Logistics (2014)
Carwyn represented the Defendant in a Manual Handling claim where the Claimant was seeking a substantial sum to reflect the injuries suffered. Carwyn successfully defended the claim.

Chaudry v Tunc & Ors (2014)
Carwyn represented the Claimant in a case arising from a Road Traffic Accident. The Claimant suffered from a permanent pain syndrome, however he had managed to continue to work. The case had a number of issues within it that required sensitive client care. The case was eventually settled.

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.
