Profile

Dave Coombes has over 20 years’ experience in personal injury claims suffered following road traffic accidents, accidents at work and/or public places and accidents on the public highway. Dave specialises in credit hire acting for clients against all the major insurance companies. Prior to working in legal practices, Dave has also worked in the County Court and therefore has an extensive knowledge of the court process.

Notable Cases

Barratt v Hopper

The claimant suffered multiple injuries following a collision with a third party vehicle. The main injuries suffered was to the shoulder which required surgery. An interim payment was released for the surgical procedure following application to the court. The claimant also claimed car damage, care hire charges, loss of earnings, treatment fees etc. The claim settled for a sum in the region of £50,000.00.

Smith & Rook v Skinner, Hudson, Tradex Insurance

The claimants suffered injuries and losses following a road traffic collision. The third party driver was driving someone else’s car which meant that the driver was not insured. The insurance company that insured the car was added to proceedings. There was a dispute on liability which was eventually resolved. The passenger in the claimant’s car had to get separate representation. The claimant’s recovered damages from the insurance company that insured the car and their costs.

Fleming v Rainham Industrial Services Ltd

The claimant suffered injuries at work. Whilst working at ground level, a scaffolding joint fell causing the claimant severe head and facial injuries. He also suffered psychological injuries causing the claimant to change employment. Liability was admitted and the claimant recovered damages in the region of £30,000.00.


Hobbies

When not working Dave tries to stay fit by working out. Dave is a very keen racquetball player. Dave also plays golf and loves a golf trip! Dave plays sports to a competitive level which he mirrors in his pursuit of client’s claims. Dave also watches all sports to include the sometimes frustrating following of Spurs.
