A Day in the Life of a Personal Injury Solicitor – Work Experience Student gets a hands on experience

“I started my work experience at Geoffrey Leaver Solicitors with little knowledge of what the job of a solicitor entails. On my first day in the personal injury department Anne Maguire helped to rectify this by handing me a case specifically about a head injury which is where her personal expertise lies. From reading this particular case I could see all of the hard work and time that is needed to be  a solicitor of this nature and the good that they do for their clients in tricky situations. I also had the pleasure of sitting in on a marketing meeting which showed me the different ways Geoffrey Leaver are trying to make it easier for potential clients to access their company and to offer their help.

On my second day I was welcomed once again with a case to read, although it was similar to the previous case this time it was about a girl the same age as me. She was suffering symptoms of a head injury from a car accident she had been involved in. And during this period of time she was still attending school and taking her GCSE’s. She was being punished for an accident that wasn’t even her fault. Geoffrey Leaver are currently in the process of getting her the compensation she rightly deserves. Even though my time spent at Geoffrey Leavers was short, I enjoyed every moment of the educational experience and would like to thank Geoffrey Leaver and more specifically Anne Maguire for having me and teaching me so much.” Lucinda
