Michael Shaw is the head of Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury department at Carter Moore Solicitors. He has been a practising lawyer since 2003 and is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers.

“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”

Being formerly from the retail sector, Michael has a strong belief in exemplary customer service.

Michael specialises in Medical Negligence Claims, higher value complex injury claims and abuse cases. He appreciates that compensation claims often arise out of complex and stressful events and believes that the best way to relieve that stress is to ensure the smooth process of your claim and that the process is laid out clearly. All of his clients are kept up to date.

Michael recognises that it is important to understand the client’s needs and concerns and that this isn’t only about getting the most money for each client but also about managing a smooth path for the client toward that compensation.

Notable 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.

In July 2017 Michael was called to the Bar at the Middle Temple Inn and is now a fully qualified barrister.
