Lindsey Allen is a senior executive at Thompsons Solicitors, helping to direct the group of highly trained solicitors at the firm who deal with personal injury claims and accident at work claims. Based in the firm’s Birmingham office, and covering the West Midlands, Lindsey specialises in dealing with cases involving assault and supervises those team members with cases in that area of the law.
Lindsey is currently a senior member of the “multi-track” (MT) section at Thompsons, which deals with cases expected to yield compensation of between £25,000 and £500,000.
As a senior executive, Lindsey not only helps to supervise other lawyers, but is also directly involved in a demanding caseload of complicated cases.
Lindsey represents clients who have been exposed to hazardous substances at work. However some of the injuries sustained by clients have been caused in accidents outside work. She also deals with product liability cases.
Her duties involve representing clients suffering from multiple orthopaedic injuries, minor brain injuries and those suffering from serious psychological injuries. Lindsey sometimes deals with cases involving fatalities. She has also gained considerable experience in the past dealing with deafness at work.
Lindsey graduated with a law degree from Wolverhampton University and completed a postgraduate legal practice course run by De Montfort University. She became a fully-qualified solicitor in 2007, having undertaken further training at Thompsons Solicitors.
Her main motivation at Thompsons is to secure the highest possible compensation for the people she represents, so that it reflects the suffering, disability and financial losses they have already incurred and are likely to incur in future.
Lindsey points out that Thompsons always works for the victims of injury and not defendants. She says: “Our focus is aimed at ensuring that people who are injured, disabled or suffering a psychological impact through other people’s actions or failure to act, achieve a just settlement and the best possible compensation.”
Away from work, most of Lindsey’s time is taken up by her young children, attempting to ensure that the time they spend together is “fun-filled and action packed”.
Lindsey is a member of the Law Society panel.
