Andrew Atkinson has specialised in personal injury litigation for over 15 years and, unusually, has extensive knowledge and experience of the workings of a claim from both a Claimant and Defendant perspective.
Andrew – known widely as ‘the CRPS solicitor‘ – joined BLB Solicitors as a result of his particular interest in compensation claims involving chronic pain conditions, including Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), Fybromyalgia, and Myofascial Pain Syndrome. In April 2018, Andrew became Head of our Personal Injury Team.
“I just want to say a massive thank you Andrew for everything you have done. You have not only been my solicitor but someone who has listened to me cry when in pain and struggling through my day to day life. If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t have got the help I needed and the knowledge about CRPS to be able to get to where I am today. I now have the financial stability behind me because of all the hard work you put in. I will be eternally grateful for not only me but for my daughter as well. It means her future now feels secure as well as mine. You should be proud of the solicitor you are and all your clients now and in the future are lucky to have you.” BE, Client
Andrew particularly enjoys working closely with medical specialists, particularly in the fields of pain medicine, rheumatology, psychiatry and neurology, in order to gain the best possible understanding of a client’s condition and the limitations it imposes upon them. He says:
“Our primary aim here at BLB is to obtain the best possible treatment and rehabilitation for clients who have often had little if any medical intervention. Many of the best forms of treatment are either extremely difficult to source from the NHS or are very expensive in the private sector. An important part of my job is therefore seeking funding for treatment from the other party’s insurance company. That is where my past experience as a Defendant lawyer can prove invaluable.”
At BLB, the number of clients that each member of the team acts for is kept low. In this way, we are able to dedicate quality time to each of our clients to ensure that each receives the highest possible standard of representation.
“From the time of our first telephone conversation Andrew was outstanding. He oozes calmness and confidence and his knowledge is second to none.” RT, Client
