Chris has acted for insurers in defending catastrophic injury claims for over 25 years and has been involved in many reported cases. Some of his most notable cases are the House of Lords decision in Hunt v Severs, a leading personal injury decision where he acted for the successful defendant, Doyle v Wallace concerning the assessment of loss of earnings and loss of chance, and Wall v Mutuelle de Poitiers which determined the expert evidence to be called in claims where foreign law applies to the assessment of damages in this country.

Being a founder member of the Disability Assessment Unit, he was also closely associated with the introduction of rehabilitation into the process of claims handling. He is also a founder member of its successor, The Bodily Injury Claims Management Association (BICMA).
