Speaker profile for Kevin Walker and Michael Blair: Speaking at Naidex

Speaker Name: Kevin Walker and Michael Blair

Company Name: Clear Law LLP

Kevin Walker:

Kevin is Head of Serious Injury at Clear Law with a niche specialism in amputation claims, and a particular interest in spinal cord injuries and brain injuries. Kevin’s breadth of knowledge and experience expands the spectrum of life-changing injuries and for over 25 years he has regularly achieved settlements in excess of £1m for his clients.

Kevin has a passion for active prosthetics and assistive technology and through these interests and his experience, Kevin is able to help his clients overcome a range of mobility, dexterity and confidence issues.

A long-standing Member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, Kevin is dedicated to providing a quality, personable service to clients and delivering successful outcomes. He appreciates the importance of clients feeling confident in their choice of lawyer and emphasises trust, respect, confidentiality and compassion. Kevin gets to know his clients as individuals – understanding their personal circumstances, their family, their likes and dislikes. He is there for his clients every step of the journey post-serious injury and will always help to maximise their recovery and well-being.

Kevin recognises his clients’ need for a clear and prompt rehabilitation pathway, for care and support and alongside the sensitivities involved he looks to guide his clients and their loved ones to a return to living.

An accident 5 years ago has left Kevin living with chronic pain. He knows that although pain cannot be seen or measured objectively and there is no set protocol to manage it, pain is very much real.

Outside of work, Kevin enjoys time with his young family, sailing and travel, wine (who doesn’t?!), theatre and sports

Seminar Title: Solicitors – A Painful Experience?

This seminar will explore pain following serious and catastrophic injuries. How pain is managed, how pain is viewed by others i.e. often with scepticism and ignorance, and why your solicitor should always consider pain in isolation in a claim for injuries and loss arising from negligence of a third party.

Public Theatre 1, 11:45 - 12:15, Wednesday 25th.
