Irwin Mitchell Night School – Autumn 2023: Claiming For a Personal Injury

One thing that brings all legal specialists together is the passion and will to help people access the support they need. But, sometimes it’s not as accessible as we’d like. That’s why, we created the Irwin Mitchell Night School.

The Irwin Mitchell Night School is a free and informative webinar series that offers a friendly and helpful introduction to the legal world.

Our speakers will be on hand to help you with any questions you may have along the way. They’re here to help you get the most out of the course, and feel empowered as a result.

If you have any queries, please call Laura Daly on +44(0)121 7569 884 or email

Claiming For a Personal Injury

During this session, our partner Hilary Wetherell from our Serious Injury team will cover:

  • What a personal injury claim is
  • How the law recognises a life-changing injury
  • Why you should choose a specialist solicitor
  • What to expect from a solicitor
  • How long a personal injury claim can take.

Hilary leads the Complex Personal Injury teams in Birmingham, who help of range of people. The team support those who’ve suffered life-changing injuries in road traffic accidents, accidents at work or accidents in public places.

The team specialises in brain and spinal cord injuries, polytrauma, and cases involving severe burns. They also do fatal accident work, including police liaison and coronial law.

Hilary helps her clients to access quality rehabilitation and support, as well as securing compensation to help them now and in the future. Her clients often lack capacity to manage their finances and property, so Hilary works closely with our Court of Protection team to make sure their interests are protected.
