Based in Thompsons’ Solicitors Manchester office, litigation assistant, Wendy, works on personal injury claims for clients across the North West, mainly involving animal attacks.
With 6 years’ legal experience, initially handling industrial disease claims, Wendy has built up an expertise in handling claims for injuries caused by animal attacks. The majority of the attacks involve dogs or horses.
Common incidents include postal workers bitten by dogs through letter boxes when delivering post or workers, such as midwives, nurses, police or social workers going into people’s homes being bitten or attacked by dogs. Horse-riding accidents will result from people at riding schools being thrown from their horses or being kicked by them.
Now she also handles personal injury claims as well as providing assistance with multi-track high value (over £25,000) accident claims for clients across the North West. Claimants may have been injured at work by faulty equipment or through slips and trips, or in road traffic accidents involving orthopaedic or soft tissue injuries, burns and scarring. Wendy always strives to achieve the maximum compensation in the least time for her claimants.
Wendy values Thompsons ethos of genuinely putting the client first that the firm is committed to informing clients early of their prospects of succeeding in their claim.
