Expansion Of Public Liability Team

Birchall Blackburn are pleased to announce the expansion of its public liability unit and welcomes the recent recruitment of Fiona Marsden, as a senior solicitor within the team.

The unit currently deals with hundreds of trip and slip claims, including Highways actions, occupiers liability claims and other related incidents. Whilst often these incidents cause initial embarrassment, in many cases the accident can lead to serious injuries such as fractures and ligament damage, often resulting in extended absences from work.

Established two years ago and based at our Preston Office, the team comprises 13 members of staff. The team now specialises in a number of actions against individuals and organisations, acting for hunderds of clients around the country.

“I am pleased to see the expansion of the unit and as a team we understand the importance of dealing with the client’s claim in a cost effective and prompt fashion, adding to the existing expertise within our large personal injury department. Above all we aim to offer our clients an efficient, yet friendly and professional service”, states Carlos Lopez, the Partner in charge of the Department.

Carlos has over 12 years’ experience dealing with personal injury work and is a member of the Law Society Personal Injury panel. Members of the team are experienced in litigation and strive not only to recover the maximum amount of compensation but also to deal with the often the more pressing issue of rehabilitation; so that clients recieve the treatment that they require following an injury. We work to recover all associated losses and whenever possible secure interim payments from the defendants. Hundreds of thousands of pounds has already been recovered in compensation for our clients and we are happy to discuss your claim in confidence, offering a free initial interview.

If you suffer a trip or fall, please contact Carlos Lopez by email or on 01772 561663 for more information.
