Based in Cardiff, Ian Bridgeman is part of the serious injury and medical negligence team with more than 15 years’ experience.

Ian’s work extends to both accidents at work, and road traffic claims including serious head injuries and major orthopaedic injuries where rehabilitation plays a big role. Ian says that Thompsons differs from other firms, as they only act for injured people and helping them get back what they deserve against insurers who try to avoid paying out is a very rewarding aspect of his job.

Ian is a cricket fan and has been involved with Cardiff Cricket Club Youth.


Ian helped to settle a claim for his client Mandy Davies, who aggravated a pre-existing spinal injury when her chair was lowered by a colleague without her knowing. Ian’s determination made sure that Mandy got the compensation she needed to recognise her injuries and compensate her for her losses.
