Richard Foyster - Partner
Richard is Head of Personal Injury at Ashtons Legal and specialises in catastrophic injury claims, particularly brain injury cases – usually following car accidents or accidents at work.
He has a reputation for taking on and winning particularly complex cases, and cases which other solicitors have turned away or failed to properly progress.
He is passionate about the importance and benefits of extensive early private rehabilitation following a serious injury, and the positive effects that this can have on the eventual outcome for his injured clients.
Richard has settled many cases with a value of more than £1,000,000; his recent work includes obtaining a settlement of over £4,000,000 for a young man who suffered brain injuries and a number of orthopaedic injuries in a road traffic accident. The High Court Judge who approved the settlement terms made it clear that Richard had achieved a very good outcome for the client
