Assisting senior solicitors in handling claims for trade union clients across the North West who have had life-changing and traumatic injuries, including serious brain and spinal cord injuries, Amy is involved from start to finish.
Amy identifies and instructs the appropriate medical and technical experts to help build her trade union clients’ case and she will draft and update the Schedules of Loss, make applications to the court and issue proceedings. In daily contact with her clients, Amy makes sure they are supported and kept informed throughout the process. Amy attends meetings and conferences relating to the case, whether with clients or Counsel to negotiate a final settlement.
In addition to assisting senior solicitors, Amy runs a number of her own minor injury fast-track claims.
Amy has experience of dealing with sensitive Court of Protection cases, supporting clients and their families to manage funds in clients’ best interests, making sure their needs are met with interim payments.
Amy has also worked as an Assistant Case Manager for clients who lack physical or mental capacity as a result of serious personal injury or clinical negligence. Working with the legal teams, Amy would help build evidence and make sure that clients received the right therapy, equipment, accommodation and other support and care that they needed.
Working at Thompsons enables Amy to make a difference to seriously injured clients, having a positive impact on their future, and that client-focus is what Amy finds rewarding.
An experienced scuba diver, Amy loves to dive with her husband. Amy also enjoys walking in the Peak District, Saddleworth and West Yorkshire, and experimenting with gluten free cooking.
