Ezra Macdonald - Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence

Ezra Macdonald - Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence profile

Ezra has substantial experience of a range of drafting and advisory work, encompassing a broad spectrum of claims for personal injury, including occupier’s liability, public liability, highways, road traffic accidents, nuisance, and negligence pleaded with reference to breaches of health and safety legislation. He is well-versed in noise-induced hearing loss claims, hand-arm vibration syndrome, and other aspects of industrial disease. His drafting experience extends to schedules of loss in excess of £250,000.

He has represented both claimants and defendants in a range of county court hearings, on the small claims track, fast track, and multi-track – including full trials of liability and quantum, directions hearings, applications, and costs and case management conferences. Having cut his teeth in the criminal courts, he is particularly well suited to examining cases of alleged fraud.

Ezra has a particular interest in credit hire cases, acting for both claimants and defendants, and is always happy to provide guidance at any stage of litigation.

Ezra has published articles in The Journal of Personal Injury Law and for PI Brief Update. His article Withdrawal of Part 36 Offers (Journal of Personal Injury Law, September 2013) accurately predicted – or influenced (he isn’t sure which) – the revisions made to Part 36 of the current Civil Procedure Rules.
