Paul Turner

Associate Litigator

Paul specialises in acting for victims of negligence resulting in debilitating chronic pain conditions arising from accidents at work, road traffic accidents and medical negligence. He has vast amounts of experience in recognising the symptoms of Neuropathic Pain and other Chronic Pain conditions having previously acted for clients with Chronic Pain, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) , Fibromyalgia, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Somatoform Disorder.

Paul carries out a forensic approach to medical causation by reference to a client’s medical records and history. Paul seeks to fully understand the chronology leading to the onset of pain and the consequential impacts it has had on the lives of his clients. Paul will advise on  the prospects of bringing these potentially high value and complex claims and will ensure the necessary insurance funding is in place in order to secure appropriate medical evidence from carefully selected medical experts.

“I understand that chronic pain conditions are multi faceted and impact on many areas of a victims life.  Pain is subjective and often not visible to the naked eye. Victims of pain often feel that they are not believed or are made to feel that the pain is in their head. Medication alone is not necessarily the solution for long term chronic pain and I will work hard to gain access to funding for treatment and medical opinion in order that my clients have the opportunity to reach their best possible outcome. I will also seek interim payments to offset financial hardship where at all possible”.

Paul is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL)

“Paul conducted his work in an efficient and professional manner. His foresight was truly remarkable. My case was successful due to his dedication, knowledge and perseverance”.
