Kam is a senior serious injury solicitor, based in Thompsons Solicitors’ London office, covering London and South East England.
A highly knowledgeable and experienced solicitor of 17 years’, Kam handles claims for the most serious injuries caused by accidents at work, in road traffic accidents or in public places, those caused by assaults and also fatalities. Many serious injury claims, by their nature, take time to reach court or a settlement, but Kam is a determined, successful litigator, in his pursuit of justice for his trade union clients.
Kam’s clients include those with orthopaedic injuries, brain injuries, head injuries, amputations, spinal cord injuries, catastrophic and life-changing injuries, with continuing symptoms, and he aims to provide support and guidance in a sensitive, professional way throughout the legal process.
Getting the best possible deal for his clients to help rebuild their lives is Kam’s bottom line. Taking care of his trade union clients is Kam’s number 1 priority. But Kam knows that it’s not just about compensation – his team also actively supports seriously injured clients to ensure they receive the rehabilitation they need, with guidance on where to get help and benefits, so that they can get their lives back on track.
Kam keeps in contact with union officials and convenors, and regularly gives talks and training to union stewards and members on legal changes, health and safety issues and Thompsons Solicitors’ campaigns, including Small Claims Big Impact, which campaigned against the proposed rise to the small claims limit.
Kam gets enormous satisfaction from being the voice of his trade union clients in the fight to get them the compensation they deserve. Thompsons Solicitors’ ethos of only acting for claimants, never insurance companies or employers, keeps Kam motivated.
Outside of work, Kam has a busy home life with three children to keep entertained. Kam enjoys attending classes at his local gym as well as yoga and cycling.
