About Matthew Tuff
I qualified as a solicitor in 1999 and have worked in the area of catastrophic personal injury ever since. I specialise in brain injury, amputation cases, fatal accidents and severe musculo-skeletal injuries.
The areas that I deal with include:
- Catastrophic personal injury
- Brain injury
- Complex musculo-skeletal and spinal cord injuries
- Amputation injuries
- Psychiatric injury
- Fatal accident cases
As well as recovering compensation for our clients, I place particular emphasis on securing rehabilitation for them at an early stage. I have extensive experience of working closely with expert case managers and rehabilitation companies to secure this goal.
I have worked on numerous cases involving brain injury and other life changing injuries, including the case of Black v Barrett, a spinal cord injury and brain injury case that settled for £6 million, the case of C v D a complex musculo-skeletal injury case that settled for £1.75 million, the case of D v D a brain injury case that settled for £1.2 million, and the case of D v B, a brain injury case that resulted in an award of £4.45 million.
I have been a volunteer trustee of Headway South West London for over 8 years; this is an amazing charity that helps survivors of brain injury. I have worked with the spinal injury charity Backup Trust and I have volunteered as a buddy working with wheelchair users on Backup activity weekends on Dartmoor.
Outside of work, I enjoy cycling and jogging. I am a member of Toastmasters International (a not for profit organisation that promotes public speaking and leadership skills).
