Thank you for dealing with my claim in a swift and efficient manner. I will not hesitate to recommend you to anybody else in the future that may require your help. Once again Charlotte, thank you.
I am sympathetic to all my clients and the tough times they are going through. I enjoy working hard to obtain the compensation they deserve
After completing her A Levels, Charlotte obtained a job as an office assistant at a firm of solicitors who specialise in commercial debt recovery. She worked there for five years, progressing from office assistant to a full time lawyer with her own case load. She dealt with a wide range of low value debt recovery matters and also assisted the senior partner with larger claims ranging from £25,000 to £1,000,000.
Charlotte began studying through the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives in 2007. She qualified as a Chartered Legal Executive in January 2016.
Charlotte joined Bell Lax in February 2012. She works in the personal injury department dealing with all aspects of personal injury work. She specialises in dealing with road traffic accident, public liability, employers’ liability and occupiers’ liability claims through the new claims portal.
In addition, she assists more senior solicitors with their cases, including clinical negligence and trespass to the person claims, as the need arises. She also deals with uninsured and “hit and run” driver claims through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. The majority of her clients are funded on “no win, no fee” agreements.
In this role Charlotte manages her own case load of predominantly Claimant personal injury claims from the time of initial new enquiry through to successful conclusion of the claim for damages and costs.
Charlotte has advised and assisted in settlement negotiations, helping to ensure that her clients receive the full amount of compensation they deserve, as quickly as possible.
Charlotte also has experience dealing with claims through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, which compensates people who have been physically or mentally injured because of acts of violence.
She has developed her advocacy experience by representing children at court hearings to approve their settlements.
Outside of work, Charlotte enjoys reading, socialising and going to the gym.
