Abigail is part of Thompsons Solicitors’ industrial disease team for the north west of England and north Wales and is based in Manchester.

As a case handler, Abigail manages pre-litigation fast track claims worth under £25,000.

Specialising in claims involving lung diseases, chemical expose, repetitive strain injuries, hearing loss, dermatitis and harm-arm vibration and carpel tunnel syndrome, Abigail is responsible for negotiating settlements or moving cases to trial.

With three and a half years legal experience, Abigail has gained a considerable skill set, ensuring that her clients’ best interests are always represented. Whether investigating the source of illnesses or injuries or negotiating with employers, Abigail is determined, meticulous and thorough.

Abigail’s main focus is to make sure her clients – who have often been made redundant or been forced to take long-term sick leave – achieve the best possible legal and financial redress, so that they and their families can move on with their lives.

Abigail is proud to work at Thompsons because the firm is dedicated to helping working people, never bosses or insurers, and is committed to campaigning to improve workers’ rights.

Outside of work, Abigail is studying to become a fully qualified solicitor. In her free time, Abigail, who loves cats, supports Everton football club.
