Serious & Catastrophic Injury – Manchester

Qualifications and professional achievements: LLB (Hons) – English and Welsh Law


Amanda is an approachable and highly driven solicitor specialising in personal injury and litigation cases. She will act quickly to help you to relieve financial pressures as a result of the injury, arrange assessment from medical experts, funding for private medical treatment, funding to start early rehabilitation, arrange help with everyday practical problems and help you through often unfamiliar and complicated procedures such as inquests.

With a wide range of experience across a diverse case load, Amanda has supported and helped people affected by:


  • Road traffic collisions
  • Employers’ liability
  • Public liability
  • Clinical negligence
  • Criminal injuries
  • Cosmetic injuries

Amanda studied Criminology at the University of Leeds. She enjoyed the Law electives and developed a passion for the profession before studying a law conversion course at the University of Law, Manchester, which was an intense year but well worth it.

She has been a qualified solicitor since July 2017 and specialises in serious and catastrophic injury because she is passionate about helping others. Amanda says: “Helping vulnerable people access the compensation they deserve and need is very rewarding.”

Why did Amanda choose Birchall Blackburn Law?

She trained in a small practice, so wanted to move to a bigger firm within which she could expand her knowledge. Birchall Blackburn Law has a strong serious and catastrophic department and they are leaders in their field, which attracted Amanda to the role. The firm has a highly experienced team of solicitors from whom Amanda is constantly learning.

What does Amanda do when she is not practising law?

Amanda is an enthusiastic sports woman and member of a local running club. She has completed the Manchester Half Marathon for charity and is aiming to complete her first marathon soon. Amanda is also a keen volunteer and has raised funds for charities such as the Brain and Spinal Injury Centre and Alzheimer’s Society.
