He is an APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) accredited Senior Litigator with extensive experience of complex, high value personal injury litigation. He specialises in recovering compensation for victims of overseas accidents and injuries caused as a result of defective and harmful products, with particular experience of defective medical devices.
Aidan is currently working with a team of highly experienced lawyers pursuing the manufacturers of various metal on metal hip devices. In these cases, metal ions from the implants have caused extensive tissue damage and have required further revision operations to replace the joint and remove the damaged tissue, often leaving the patient with permanent mobility problems.

He has experience of multi-jurisdictional claims and has provided expert advice to lawyers from other countries and jurisdictions.
