Many of Kim’s clients have lung cancer or Mesothelioma but there are also clients with non-malignant asbestos conditions
Kim is always very aware that her clients need prompt clear and concise advice. She seeks to pass on her skills in the supervision of a trainee solicitor at the firm.
Being part of a team is a big part of being at Thompsons and Kim likes it that the team is focussed solely on claimants and never insurers or employers.
When she is not working, Kim reads, enjoys photography and is getting into Geneaology
KIM’S CASE EXPERIENCE
Kim has successfully recovered substantial compensation for many clients including:
A former scaffolder whose wife died from mesothelioma after washing his work’s overalls received a five figure sum for her untimely death. The claim was complicated by the deceased having died before Kim was instructed.
A former Aston University secretary who having come into contact with low levels of asbestos, died of mesothelioma. Though the low levels of exposure made the claim difficult, Kim successfully recovered a six figure sum.
Two former BT employees who developed mesothelioma having been exposed to asbestos during office alterations.
A kitchen assistant (70 years) who had been living with mesothelioma for some years before instructing Kim. The claim ended up in the High
Court in London which heard evidence from witnesses and experts including engineers before finding in favour of Kim’s client.
“A big Thank you to Amanda, Emily and Kim for all the help they have given to me to understand the severity of the claim, the outcome of which will give security to myself and my sons, nothing will bring back my husband but with all of the help from yourselves we can move on. We as a family, would certainly recommend your company. Once again, thank you all. You were always there at the end of the phone when I needed assistance.”
“Every member of the team at Thompsons have exceeded our expectations. At every stage of process, I have felt informed and confident in their abilities. They have been professional yet approachable, sympathetic and 100% on our side, fighting our corner! We would not hesitate to use Thompsons, Cardiff again and will recommend them wholeheartedly.”
