Grant Incles's Profile Picture
Grant has been working in all forms of personal injury litigation, including fatal accidents, since 1999.
 
He joined Leigh Day in March 2016 taking partnership and leading the cycling and sports injures team in London.  He previously worked at Stewarts Law for over six years, where he represented people who had sustained life-changing spinal cord, brain injury and limb loss. It was in this role that he honed his expertise dealing with cases of the utmost severity, dealing with cases with a capitalised value up to £13,500,000.00.

Prior to Stewarts he was at Irwin Mitchell, dealing with complex and high value neuro-trauma and clinical negligence cases. 
 
Grant has spent the last 12 years litigating almost exclusively in the High Court, Queen's Bench Division, achieving very significant results on behalf of seriously injured people, focusing on achieving the best possible rehabilitation and quality of life for the future.
 
With a passion for all things cycling and the protection of cyclists and vulnerable road users, Grant has developed a genuine expertise in cycling-related injury cases. He has written and commented widely on the legal issues around cycling and personal injury compensation including for LexisNexis and contributed to the debate on the introduction of London’s cycle superhighways on the television channel London Live. He is a speaker for MBL Seminars on the subject of Cycling Injury Claims. 
 
In addition to leading a team of solicitors dealing with multi-track cycling injury claims, he maintains a practice of life-changing injury and Fatal Accidents Act cases. Among his current case-load, he is representing:
 
  • the family of Ralph Brazier, who died as a result of hitting a pothole in Surrey whilst riding his bicycle   
  • a cyclist who suffered serious brain injuries as a result of riding across a defective cattle grid 
  • a cyclist who suffered a traumatic amputation of his right lower limb as a result of a tractor pulling out into his path
  • the family of a cyclist who struck an oncoming vehicle and died as a result of trying to avoid a ‘cluster’ of potholes on a known cycling route 
  • Charlotte Swift, who suffered serious bi-lateral leg injuries and underwent below-knee amputation of her left leg. The amount of damages to which she was entitled was contested in almost all respects by the Defendant insurance company and the case went to an eight day trial in the high court in April and May of 2018. She was awarded £4.1m by the Court, beating the defendants last pre-trial settlement offer by a very significant margin. Miss Swift has been given permission to appeal to the Court of Appeal on the issue of the capital cost of purchasing special accommodation and could become an important test case on this issue.
