Bournemouth and Southampton law firm Lester Aldridge has appointed David Healy, who has joined as a partner in the personal injury team.
Healy brings over 21 years’ experience in the industry and has previously led the personal injury and medical negligence teams in various firms.
Specialising in cases for those seriously injured, Healy has acted in many high-profile cases, typically involving spinal cord damage, brain injury, amputations and/or serious burns.
He had been accredited with the Law Society Personal Injury Panel for over 10 years and has been an approved solicitor with both the Headway and Spinal Injuries charities.
Tim Blackwell, head of personal injury and clinical negligence, said: “It’s great that David has joined the team. David is a very talented practitioner in the personal injury field. The level of expertise and knowledge in the team is of an exceptionally high standard. We are able to offer the very best possible service to clients who have suffered life-changing and catastrophic injuries through no fault of their own. We welcomed Paula Barnes to the firm last year and now with the addition of David it demonstrates our commitment to support the firm’s growth in catastrophic injury work.”
