BL Claims Solicitors, a division of the Blake Morgan Group, has announced the appointment of three new solicitors.
The firm, which specialises in clinical negligence, personal injury and travel claims, has welcomed David Healy as a partner and head of the personal injury team, Deborah Lewis as a solicitor, and Martin Usher as an associate.
Healy joins the firm from Sampson Coward, with more than 15 years’ experience dealing with clinical negligence and personal injury claims. He specialises in multi-million pound clinical claims, usually involving brain or spinal cord damage cases.
Lewis, who has also moved from Sampson Coward, has more than 14 years’ experience in personal injury litigation and specialises in injuries arising out of accidents at work, particularly as a result of dangerous equipment or unsafe workplaces.
Usher, previously of Berrymans Lace Mawer, joins BL Claims Solicitors as an associate. Martin has seven years’ experience and has dealt with a broad range of claims. He specialises in high value and catastrophic injury claims.
“We’re delighted to make these key appointments to the growing team at BL Claims Solicitors,” said Dr John White the head of the clinical negligence team at the firm.
“David brings with him a wealth of expertise in high-value clinical negligence and personal injury claims. He, Deborah and David together have a wealth of experience and are already proving themselves to be valuable additions to the firm,” he added.
The Blake Morgan group was formed following the merger of Blake Lapthorn and Morgan Cole at the beginning of July.
