This niche compensation firm acts primarily for claimants in the fields of personal injury, child abuse, clinical negligence and military claims.
The firm: This innovative firm is dedicated to progressing claims swiftly and tenaciously whilst providing the highest levels of client care. Exceptional direct access to solicitors and meetings at times and places to suit the client are standard features of the service. The approach is holistic with interim payments being sought at an early stage to alleviate financial hardship and to enable clients to access the professional support and specialist targeted intervention they need at the very earliest opportunity.
Types of work undertaken: The experienced personal injury team led by partner Marilene Antoni deals with the full range of personal injury claims with a particular emphasis on catastrophic injuries, including brain injuries, amputation claims, psychiatric injuries, disfigurement claims and fatal accident claims.
The child brain injury and spinal injury departments are led by Caroline Klage and Raquel Siganporia respectively. The dedicated departments reflect the firm’s expertise in these areas.
The leading child abuse team headed by partner Jonathan Wheeler is the UK’s biggest department representing claimants who have been traumatised by recalling events of abuse in childhood. It brings actions against individual abusers, their employers, foster parents, operators of children’s homes and schools, social services departments which placed children in care or failed to protect children from being abused at home, religious organisations and charitable foundations.
The well established and pro-active clinical negligence team headed by partner Suzanne Trask undertakes the full range of clinical negligence work and has particular expertise in claims involving amputations, birth injuries, brain injuries, the late diagnosis and misdiagnosis of cancer, obstetric and gynaecological injuries, orthopaedic injuries, pressure ulcers, and fatal injuries.
The niche military team pursues claims for injuries arising from breaches of duty that range from bullying to providing defective equipment and inadequate medical care. Its client base is composed of serving and retired personnel and their families, and members of the civilian services linked to the Ministry of Defence.
Bolt Burdon Kemp aims to further develop its expertise in its specialist areas and is committed to expansion through investment in excellent staff.
