Mr Mike Gomm

Expert in Assistive Technology and Disability

Mike Gomm of Steve Martin Associates (SMA) is an expert in assistive technology and disability. He has over 30 years of experience working in the field but also benefits from a direct and personal insight into the everyday problems faced by families supporting a disabled relative - as well as the benefits technology can bring to this sector.

He has worked for very many of the country’s leading law firms, personal injury lawyers and barristers. Over the years he has prepared many hundreds of technology reports for the Court - in the last three years he has produced over 200 (claimant 95% and defendant 5%). He has a solid reputation for clear, honest advice, working with a very wide range of disabling conditions such as severe physical disability, head and spinal injury, work-related upper-limb disorder (RSI), sensory loss, learning difficulties and mental health issues.

Mike can work with claimants who have any disabling condition as a result of, for example, a birth injury, cerebral palsy, a road accident (RTA), industrial accident, congenital disorder or assault. Subjects considered regularly include:
