Robert Lawton has over 15 years’ experience dealing with personal injury claims, including road traffic accidents, assaults, accidents at work and public liability claims.

He is based in Bristol, within the multi-track accident team, dealing with claims across the South West and Wales. He runs a full case load with settlement values between £25,000 and £250,000. He has experience dealing with significant injuries, such as orthopaedic injuries or psychiatric injuries.

Robert’s aim is to ensure that those individuals who have suffered significant injuries and losses are represented in a way that ensures they get back proper compensation for what they have been through and lost.

Robert says that Thompsons differs from other law firms because it only acts for the injured party and never works for insurance companies, and that drives him on.

Outside of work Robert is a keen sportsman, and enjoys spending time with this three young children.
