Victoria is an experienced Thompsons Solicitors serious injury lawyer, covering the West Midlands from the firm’s Birmingham office.
Supportive and effective, Victoria uses her 13 years’ experience to get the best deal for her personal injury clients. Victoria’s case-load includes people who have suffered serious road traffic accident injuries, those injured in accidents at work and clients who are the victims of assault, including those deliberately struck by cars.
Victoria is a determined and relentless litigator on behalf of her clients whose injuries are life-changing, with long-term symptoms, or epilepsy, brain damage, spinal cord damage or amputated or broken limbs.
Victoria built up her expertise initially through handling industrial injuries, such as work-related limb disorders (WRULD), caused by working in car or other factory assembly lines where movements were repetitive and positions were awkward. Or where workers had to use constantly vibrating tools in the manufacture of cars and developed hand and arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) or other repetitive strain injuries.
Victoria doesn’t just get the maximum amount of compensation she can, she also actively supports seriously injured clients with packages to help their rehabilitation, organises referrals to other agencies such as social services, and to medical consultations, and advises on getting the right benefits.
It’s strong emphasis on supporting workers’ rights and not being afraid to take on difficult cases, is what attracted Victoria to working for Thompsons Solicitors which she says is unique and makes it the best in the field.
In her spare time, Victoria makes sure that she spends it with her two young children, at the park, the cinema or taking them to their activity clubs. She also enjoys reading, socialising and the theatre.
VICTORIA’S CASE EXPERIENCE
Mr X, a senior prison officer and former Thompsons’ work-related stress client, was suspended twice and unable to return to work. He was forced to accept lower paid alternative employment. Despite the employers denying liability, Victoria was able to secure compensation.
Victoria is a member of the Law Society, Headway and Silver Lining.
Mr X, a former Thompsons’ serious injury client, said: “It’s been my privilege to have been represented by Victoria Kingscote in my difficult case with the prison service. Victoria has used her expertise and knowledge of the law to negotiate a settlement which far exceeded my expectations. Throughout the proceedings Victoria has kept me informed of how things were developing and returned all my calls and email queries promptly with honest answers.
“Overall, I am extremely happy and grateful for the service I have received, and the professional and friendly manner the service was delivered. I would highly recommend Victoria Kingscote and Thompsons Solicitors’ to anyone needing legal assistance.”
