Claim Today Solicitors will continue to be a Legal 500 recommended law firm for personal injury claimants in the West Midlands for a fifth consecutive year.
The 2017 United Kingdom edition of the Legal 500 was published yesterday, with Claim Today Solicitors continuing to be at Tier 4 for the West Midlands in the subsection of Personal injury; claimant.
The Legal 500 is a comprehensive review of the capabilities of law firms worldwide, and has provided an up-to-date vision of the legal market in regions and countries across the world for the last thirty years.
The rankings are made based on a number of factors, primarily focussed “on the bench strength of the team (including partners and associates), and the consistency of quality of the individuals within the team”. It also considers factors such as case capacity, market share, future investment, reputation, and perception in the market.
In the rankings, Legal 500 said this about Claim Today:
“The personal injury department is comprised of 24 fee-earners and is led by operations director Vicky Blodwell, who recently assisted a motor car servicer with his claim following an accident at his workplace where he was crushed by a car he was in the process of servicing.”
“The practice is equipped to handle all aspects of personal injury work, including asbestos-related disease, fatal accidents, amputations, brain and spinal cord injuries, and employers’ and public liability investigations. Recent work includes handling several hit-and-run incidents, and acting on behalf of a self-employed man working as a contractor who lost his hand while using an operational saw; despite admitting to contributory negligence, the claimant was awarded £85,000 in damages. The team also successfully proved the employer’s liability in a case where a construction worker was critically injured at the workplace, resulting in £200,000 in damages.”
Vicky Blodwell, Head of the Personal Injury department, spoke of her satisfaction to be included in the rankings for another year:
“It’s always a good feeling to be included in the Legal 500 as one of the major firms for personal injury claimants, and highlights the dedication and commitment of our team to help those who need to claim compensation.”
“This, alongside other awards such as Feefo’s Trusted Service Award, and the Customer Service Excellence awards, goes to show the firm’s standing in client service, and expert legal practice.”
“We are also looking to the future to climb higher in the rankings over the next few years, investing in areas of the firm to ensure that we can offer our clients an even better service.”
