Darren Tomlinson is a key member of Thompsons Solicitors’ accident at works team based in Leeds and covering Yorkshire and Humberside. His particular specialism involves clients who have been assaulted during the course of their work.

A chartered legal executive, Darren has extensive experience of taking personal injury and road accident claims and dealing with employers’ liability and public liability. His cases involve fast track claims (where damages are between £10,000 and £25,000) and multi-track (more than £25,000).

Darren makes sure he is constant touch with his clients, keeping them up-to-date with their claims. He knows they are undergoing some of the most stressful times of their lives and reassures them that Thompsons will fight hard to ensure they are fully compensated for their injuries. He values working for Thompsons and shares its commitment to fight for clients who have been injured during the course of their work, often in extremely trying circumstances and through no fault of their own. He also appreciates his colleagues: “It’s a great team. They are really friendly. I look forward to coming to work every day.” 

Away from work Darren plays cricket and golf and is involved in the leadership team at Life Church in Leeds. He is Liverpool fan and watches Wakefield Trinity rugby league. For the rest of his time he is “a taxi service” for his two children.


One client praised Darren for being “very professional”, always answering her questions and phone calls promptly. The client said he was polite and made a stressful process much easier for her.

Another client said Darren was a credit to his firm and gave him great service. The client said he would use him again – and did so with three other claims.
