Tom Ranson - Senior Associate
Tom is a member of the Personal Injury team and an APIL Senior Litigator with over 30 years’ experience.
Tom acts for injury victims across the length and breadth of the country. He has a broad practice but often deals with cases involving employers’ liability, public/occupiers’ liability and road traffic accidents.
Tom advises on all aspects of injury litigation but has a particular interest in complex poly-trauma and causation cases; for example, those involving spinal injury, psychiatric trauma, chronic pain and traumatic brain injury (especially at the subtle end of the spectrum). He also specialises in dealing with defending cases involving allegations of insurance fraud within the context of personal injury and is often asked to provide “second opinions” for clients (of other firms).
Tom is passionate about the work he does. He is committed to ensuring his clients get the best treatment, support and service right from the start and takes great pride in ensuring his clients get the best possible results within the legal framework.
Tom has extensive litigation experience (in both the High and County Courts) and he has been involved in a number of notable cases that have gone to trial or been approved by the Court. He also has experience in the appeal courts. Over the years, Tom has also secured many millions of pounds worth of compensation for clients through negotiation.
The Legal 500 says of Tom that: “he is like a Grandmaster of the chess world – a great listener and brilliant tactician with a very good sense of honesty and integrity and his level of expertise is second to none”.
Chambers and Partners say of Tom that he is “immensely hardworking and clinically quite brilliant” an “exceptional litigator” who “pays attention to detail and gives excellent client care”.
He is a longstanding member of various professional organisations, including the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL). Tom was also one of the founding members of the Ipswich & Suffolk Medico-Legal Society.
Outside of work, Tom enjoys spending time with his family and is a community volunteer at his local church.
