Personal Injury


Karen works as an Associate Legal Executive (FCILEX) in the personal injury department. Karen deals with the higher end of fast track work and also works on multi-track cases.

After leaving college she completed a one year NVQ in Business Studies and then obtained full time employment in a solicitor’s office and has been working in a legal office ever since.

Karen has been working with Lanyon Bowdler since 1996 and, whilst initially working on claims with a value of up to £15,000, she has developed her skills and knowledge and now works on high-value cases including brain injuries and fatal claims. In addition Karen was responsible for negotiating a settlement of £250,000 for a client as a result of clinical negligence.

Karen has a particular interest in Criminal Injuries Compensation Claims and recently was successful on appeal for an abuse victim and obtained a settlement of £13,000 after the initial application was refused. Karen also has a particular expertise in relation to dog bite claims.


In this episode, Karen talks about mental health in the workplace and how Lanyon Bowdler excels in the support it offers to staff. How her work involves working with clients affected by all types of personal injury claims, including fatalities and catastrophic life changing injuries. Also about signposting clients and their families to mental health support, and the importance of supporting the team's wellness.

Road Traffic Accident 4th February, 2021.  I would like to express my sincere thanks to Karen Clarke who took on this case. She has worked with dedication and efficiency throughout the last 2 years, giving advice and recommendations to enable this claim to be finalised very satisfactorily. Communication has been clear and precise throughout. Hopefully, I would not need to call on these services again but, if necessary, would not hesitate to use Lanyon Bowdler solicitors again. With very many, grateful thanks.
