Clare Nash began her career at Thompsons as a legal secretary before becoming a legal executive in 2001. She now represents personal injury clients from across Wales and the South West working out of the Cardiff office.
Working as part of the multi-track accident team, Clare’s specialisms are accidents involving orthopaedic and psychiatric injuries. She manages a diverse caseload ranging from accidents at work and assaults at work to road traffic accidents, and cases involving public liability.
As her testimonials make clear Clare has a reputation for providing excellent support and representation and securing the best outcome for her clients. She enjoys helping injured people and is proud of Thompsons’ pledge to only act for the injured person and never the defendant.
Outside work, Clare likes walking, reading and swimming.
Workplace assault: Clare acted for a UNISON member, Andrea McGowan, who had been assaulted in her job as a special needs teaching assistant. Ms McGowan was attacked by a student who had threatened to kill her on a number of previous occasions. Despite raising safety concerns with senior staff she was not relieved of her responsibilities for the student. She suffered back and neck injuries in the assault, as well as ensuing psychological distress.
Ms McGowan contacted her union for legal guidance. Her case was referred to Thompsons, and over three-and-a-half-years and then a two day court hearing, Clare secured a large compensation package for Ms McGowan.
“Thank you very much for the support, advice and help you gave me during my claim. It was a very difficult time for me and you helped me through it all with your contact and support, it was very kind. Thank you,” – a UNISON member.
“From the very outset, I found that Thompsons Solicitors are the most caring and helpful legal team I could have wished for. I was guided in clear terms as to how to proceed and they were with me each step of the way. I found that nothing was too much trouble for Clare Nash and the Team (Cardiff), and I received a response each and every time I had a query, no matter how trivial it may have seemed. A very professional service to say the least and my utmost and unlimited thanks for a successful outcome,” – a PCS member.
