About James Braund
I am a Partner in the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Team at Trethowans LLP, leading the team in the Poole and Bournemouth offices. I specialise in complex and catastrophic cases.
I often act for clients who have suffered life changing injuries, including brain injuries and severe spinal injuries. I use my knowledge and experience to ensure that they get the best possible outcome from their claim. I understand that litigation can be stressful, particularly when clients are coming to terms with serious injuries, and strive to do what I can to help lift the weight of such issues off them.
I also specialise in clinical negligence claims and have considerable experience dealing with birth injury cases, instances of delay in diagnosis, claims involving incorrect / sub standard treatment and issues involving consent.
In addition, I have considerable experience in pursuing personal injury claims involving cross border and jurisdictional issues, bringing claims to the English courts for injuries suffered in road accidents in other EU countries.
I have obtained successful outcomes in a wide variety of cases including claims and compensation for accidents at work, road traffic accidents, product liability incidents, public liability accidents and medical negligence cases, often on a no win no fee basis.
I initially read Law at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, before completing my Legal Practice Course and then qualifying as a solicitor.
