Sophia Begum


Sophia joined Bell Lax in July 2017 as a Solicitor in the Personal Injury Department.

She has many years of experience working on behalf of insurers and blue chip companies defending personal injury claims.  This experience allows her to predict what arguments a Defendant will raise, and find solutions in advance.

Sophia  has managed her own caseload for over 9 years and has experience dealing with a wide variety of cases, including claims arising from road traffic accidents; accidents at work; product liability and slips and trips.  Her caseload involves high value claims as well as lower value claims. However, Sophia understands the need to treat every client as an individual.  She takes the time to liaise with each client and to take instructions in a methodical and patient manner. This ensures that every possible avenue is explored and addressed thoroughly leading to the best compensation payout.

Sophia is not afraid to litigate if required and has dealt with litigated claims for many years  thoroughly enjoying the fast pace and challenges litigation brings.

Sophia says "I decided to make the move from Defendant to Claimant work as I really wanted to help people receive the compensation they deserve. An injury can have devastating consequences for an individual and through the advice and guidance I provide, I give my clients some means to help them get back to how they were before the incident occurred.”

In her spare time Sophia loves to travel to experience different cultures and ways of life, and also enjoys keeping fit through Muay Thai.
