Michael Shaw

Most of our clients will have had very difficult experiences when they come to us for help and protection. It is a privilege to be trusted to help people during what for some may be very dark and trying times indeed. I am very proud of the trust our clients place in us and my objective is not only to achieve the settlement the client deserves but to recognise that the choice to fight for your right to compensation is not always only about money

Michael Shaw is the head of Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury department as well as Marketing Director here at CM Solicitors. He has been a practising lawyer since 2003 and is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.

After completing his degree in Business Management and before Michael found his place in the Law Industry, he was working as an Organic Food Retail Director. Being from the retail sector, Michael has a strong belief in exemplary customer service.

Michael specialises in Medical Negligence Claims, higher value complex injury claims, abuse cases and social media harassment. He appreciates that compensation claims often arise out of complex and stressful events, understanding that the last thing you need is added stress and worry about the process of your claim so he ensures that the process is laid out clearly and all of his clients are kept up to date.

When it comes to Michael’s clients he recognises that it is important to understand the client’s needs so that he and his team’s abilities are pushed to their limits, ensuring they gain the best deal for their client, every time.

Notable recent settlements have included £200,000 damages for a client who had acquired a spinal injury as a result of GP misdiagnosis. A settlement of over £500,000 for a client who completely lost their sight in one eye and developed severe visual disturbance in the other as a result of a manufacturing defect in a firework.
