    At the beginning of his career, he dealt with a wide variety of claims covering different legal matters before becoming specialised in personal injury and litigation.
  • His case load is varied from road traffic accidents, public/occupier’s liability, accidents abroad, accidents at work, criminal injury and claims against the Local Authority. The value of his caseload ranges from fast track to multi track.
  • A highlight of his career is that with the appropriate experience and knowledge is knowing when to consider the right time to settle a claim. On one occasion, a client suffering with a painful shoulder after guidance and advice before attending on medical experts whose subsequent opinion was that she required surgery to improve the range of movement and to reduce pain levels. This surgery was arranged privately, with the costs being by the third party insurers, with the outcome that her quality of life was greatly improved before a substantial settlement was achieved.
  • He is a member of APIL.

    What our clients say about
    Cycle Accident  Claims Management.

    After a nasty cycle accident we placed our trust to CACM. Jan Canter and his very efficient team talked us through the procedure. The complete journey from post-accident to settlement was very smooth, painless and we are very happy with the result CACM supplied us with. A job well done by a very professional company.

    Jill M. - Gloucester

    I was involved in a cycling accident and CACM have acted efficiently and courteously throughout my case. They are busy but despite this they were very good at returning my calls. I was also very satisfied with the outcome of my claim. I would recommend them highly.

    Thorstein V. - Manchester

    Friendly, explanatory and supportive service from beginning to end. CACM supported me through a bicycle injury involving a car. Fantastic experience throughout an uncertain time. Cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you!
