- I was able to challenge the much used case of Pascoe v Ministry of Defence (2013) – defendant solicitors regularly use to argue that losses at 6kHz, in absence of losses at 4kHz was not diagnostic of NIHL. In my case of Derek Reay –v- Schlumberger Flow Measurement Limited (2017) which we won at trial, we were successful in arguing that losses at 6kHz alone is indeed diagnostic of noise induced hearing loss. The defendants sough to rely upon the oral evidence of Professor Lutman (one of the co-authors) of the literature used by all representatives in the field of noise induced hearing loss whose evidence was not preferred over our medical expert Mr Ian Johnson.
- Successfully obtained redacted disclosure from defendant solicitors despite them arguing the redactions were GDPR compliant and redacted due to data protection amongst many other factors. Able to convince the courts that this was not correct in which the judge stated that ‘it is at the height of arrogance for the defendants to decide what they should or should not disclose’
- Successfully obtained specific disclosure of documents from the defendants in an noise induced hearing loss case which included ‘Inception of the insurance policy document/s for the defendants along with all term of conditions attached to the insurance policy documents’, which is very uncommon to come across.
- Multiple wins on obtaining correctly signed list of documents when defendant argued there is no one to sign these for a dissolved companies
