Andrew Dalton is a highly experienced trial lawyer who delights in taking on difficult and demanding motorcycle cases. He is one of the few solicitor advocates in the country who regularly carries out trial work in all levels of Court. He has a tough and relentless litigation style and is utterly focussed on getting the best possible outcomes for his clients, whether in Court or by negotiation. Andrew originally practiced as a Barrister but preferred the specialisation that being a solicitor advocate allowed him. He has very hands on style of litigation, and is always willing to come to accident scenes to fully understand the case. He is a determined and successful trial lawyer.
Andrew took a career swerve in 1988 when his entry into HM Forces was postponed by a motorcycle accident which left him with a steel pin in his ankle. Unimpressed by his own solicitor, he decided that he could do a better job for injured motorcyclists, and he started his legal training.
His formal qualifications are impressive, an honours degree in law, a qualified Barrister (1993), Solicitor (1997) and Higher Courts Solicitor Advocate (2000), as well as a Personal Injury Panellist (1999). He is also regularly instructed as trial lawyer by other firms of solicitors who need to bring in real heavyweight experience of motorcycle trial work. He is also authorised to provide continuing professional development training to other solicitors. He has been a regular motorcyclist for over 20 years and was a motorcycle courier for two years prior to University and throughout University and his Barrister’s training.
Andrew’s special interests are brain injury and amputation work, fatal accident claims and large loss of earnings claims. He also becomes closely involved in cases where there is likely to be a trial or a complex point of law or difficult evidence.
Andrew has had over 20 bikes in his time from Kawasaki GT despatch nails to hypersports bikes, but has now given in to all year round riding (and age) on his R1200GS with hot grips.
Background: Motorcycle courier, Hod carrier, Royal Engineers
Andrew has been riding motorcycles since he was 10 years old and currently rides a GSX1400 as his daily commuter whether it is sunny or snowing. In addition, he is currently restoring an old Honda CB750 K1. Andrew practices across all areas of motorcycle law, with his practice involving both civil claims and motoring defence work.
