Ian Bridgeman has over 15 years’ legal experience, and currently works within our serious injury and medical negligence team in Cardiff. He deals with claims from across South West and Wales.

Ian specialises in accidents at work, and road traffic accidents, dealing with clients who have sustained serious injuries as a result of their accident, such as those with head injuries and multiple orthopaedic injuries.

Ian’s focus is on his client’s injuries and rehabilitation to obtain for them the compensation they need to be left financially able to cope with their new reality.

Ian says “successful cases and happy clients are always rewarding. Thompsons differ from other law firms in that we act for Claimant’s only and our longstanding links with the Unions means that we can investigate cases in forensic detail where needed and often work with them to make sure that similar accidents don’t happen again.”

Outside of work Ian enjoys cricket and assisted with Cardiff Cricket Club Youth set up a coaching role at under 15 level.


Ian’s client Mandy Davies suffered an injury whilst sitting on a chair that unknown to her had been lowered by a colleague. Mandy suffered an aggravation of a pre-existing spinal injury and Ian worked hard to negotiate a settlement with the other side, and settle the claim.
