Two new members for Leigh Day's cycling injury team

The Leigh Day cycling injuries team has welcomed two new members into the London office.

Grant Incles and Rory McCarron

25 April 2016

Keen cyclists Grant Incles and Rory McCarron have joined Leigh Day's cycling injuries team - one of the leading cycling personal injury teams in the country, providing support to all members of both British Cycling and the British Triathlon Federation.

Grant Incles has joined as partner and head of the cycling team in London, having spent the last eight years litigating almost exclusively in the High Court, representing people who had sustained life-changing spinal cord, brain injury and limb lossand developing an expertise in cycling-related injury cases.

Grant rides with Islington Cycling Club averaging around 200 miles per week riding his road bike and commuting around the city of London. He is currently preparing to ride several sportives this year including the Dragon Ride L’Etape Wales in June, riding 250km over some of South Wales’ highest peaks.

Rory is a solicitor in the team and re-joins Grant, having worked with him as a paralegal at a leading personal injury practice before qualification. He has extensive experience of working on cases for vulnerable road users, particularly cyclists and is building a genuine expertise in cases where cyclists have been injured as a result of potholes and poor road surfaces.

Rory is a member of the Regents Park Rouleurs and is a keen racing cyclist, although a broken wrist at the beginning of the 2016 season has seen him delaying his racing schedule until later in the year.

Despite his accident Rory is still managing to get 360m a week under his belt both on the road and training at home and will be in action in the support race at the London Nocturne, which Leigh Day will once again be supporting this year.

Sally Moore, Head of the Personal Injury team at Leigh Day said: “We are extremely lucky to have two very talented lawyers, who are also dedicated and knowledgeable cyclists, joining the cycling team here at Leigh Day.

“Cycling remains an overwhelmingly positive activity, enjoyed by millions of people and is at the heart of creating the liveable cities and towns of the future. The continued boom in UK cycling must be encouraged and lawyers have a role to play in ensuring accountability and, perhaps most importantly, getting people back in their saddles after injury.”
