Wakefield, York

Minster Law have been providing personal injury support since 1996, when it was founded as Corries Solicitors. The business has always worked very closely with BGL Group (a major insurance company working with many household name brands) and in 2001 became the partner of choice with Bennetts bike insurance. Working closely with insurance companies allows Minster Law to offer excellent personal injury support to genuinely injured people without advertising and cold calling.

Minster Law are legal experts but the similarities to the competition end there. They focus on the way things should be done, rather than on the way things are done. Industry norms are there to be challenged, personal injury perceptions exist to be proved wrong and evolving technology means processes can always be improved. Minster Law invest in people and processes to ensure they are always there when clients need them.

Minster Law are personal injury specialists with specific expertise in accidents involving a vehicle or on a motorcycle. They take learnings from inside and outside the legal industry, implementing them in creative and innovative ways to deliver the best support and results for clients. This has enabled their 600 colleagues in the last year (2016-2017) to settle over 25,000 claims, resulting in £100m compensation.

Minster Law handle all types of road traffic accident personal injury claims ranging from small claims through to multi track and catastrophic claims. Having such a broad range means they can take the learnings and efficiencies in the lower value claims through to maximise the service and efficiency throughout the business.

Minster Law have one of the largest multi track teams in the country with specialists in brain and spinal injuries and injuries that could result in amputation. These teams provide the highest level of care to their clients, including claims in excess of £10m.

David Sears 'a robust and able lawyer who is routinely tasked with atypical, complex personal injury litigation, consistently achieves great results for his clients in cases where others would fear to tread'.

Shaun Walker a solicitor in Wakefield who has 'extensive experience in multi-million pound orthopaedic injury claims' recently settled a case for £7,7m for a 20 year old who suffered a spinal cord injury, resulting in paraplegia. 'He wins the trust of his clients through obvious empathy, commitment to the cause, straight talking and refined tactical acumen.'

Jonathan Bamforth in York has 'a natural rapport with his clients, an ability to understand their real needs; and, considerable experience and tenacity. These attributes combine to result in excellent financial outcomes for those he represents'.

Minster Law's Principle Solicitors in brain injury, spinal injury, chronic pain and amputation make sure that all their multi track teams are kept up to date with the most recent developments in injuries and health care, ensuring that they always offer the best care and support to their clients.
