Industrial Disease and Professional Negligence – Chester

I have been a partner at Birchall Blackburn Law since 2010 and have been practicing personal injury litigation for 24 years.

I specialise in claims made by those affected by asbestos diseases and acts for clients across the UK, as well as for those who have expatriated around the world and has acted in high value personal injury and professional negligence cases.

Qualifications and professional achievements:   BA (Hons), Senior Litigator accredited member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).

Personal Accreditations: APIL Accredited Senior Litigator, Personal Injury Specialist, Occupational Disease Specialist and Asbestos Disease Specialist.

How did you end up working for a law firm? I was not good enough to make a professional sportsman! So being a Solicitor was my next choice.

Unusual fact: Whilst travelling in Africa as a student I visited the Etosha National Park in Namibia, spending a night sleeping on a bench by a watering hole.  The following year a national newspaper reported the death of a tourist at Etosha, eaten by a lion while sleeping on the same bench at the same watering hole!!
