Multi Track Solicitor/Litigator

We are looking for an experienced Multi-Track Solicitor/Litigator  to work on a  case load of complex and/or poly-trauma  portal and fast track claims. Must be diligent and thorough and consider each claim as a potential serious injury matter.    The candidate must be able to draft expert instructions, witness statements, preparing bundles, court documents and liaise if necessary between our fast track and multi-track departments.     Must have at least 3 years’ experience in running a multi- track case load and has an understanding of client’s clinical needs and rehabilitation needs as well as  funding, fixed fee and portal costs and CPR.    The firm proactively uses a case management system (proclaim) to improve speed of settlement, MI and manage compliance.
The applicant must be client and customer focused and have a good command of English both spoken and written.

The successful candidate will be working in our fast track department working on cases that have the potential to exit the portal to the multi-track department. The candidate should have some background in auditing files so the following skills will be necessary:

Attention to detail is essential
A good understanding of medical terminology is helpful or at least has the ability to use the internet to understand unfamiliar medical terminology.
The potential impact of a clients pre-existing medical history on subsequent injuries
Excellent communication skills to determine and clarify unclear issues in order to determine the most positive outcome or if need be to crystalize the claim at that stage by the matter being posted to the pre-litigation department.

As a bulk personal injury litigation firm we work in a compartmentalized way where matters are received, placed on the RTA/EL/PL and processed to settlement in the best majority of cases. However an experienced candidate will appreciate that many such cases develop and or have the potential to become serious injury/high value cases. The candidates role will focus on identifying such cases in the early stages, assisting in the conduct of those cases in order to steer the claim, collect appropriate evidence which in some cases will be complex in order to then either ensure appropriate settlement within the portal process or escalate those matters to the SI department.

Our multi-track department is expanding so there is scope for progression within this department for the successful candidate.
