In addition Tim has also dealt with a large number of road traffic accident claims acting for drivers, passengers motorcyclists pedal cyclists and pedestrians.

Tim has also dealt with claims for abuse and psychological injury.

Where required Tim has taken cases up to the Court of Appeal.

Examples of cases Tim has dealt with include:

  • Acting for multiple victims with serious burns and other injuries following an explosion in shop premises
  • Severe back injuries suffered when slipping in a shower area at work
  • Significant head trauma and other injuries following a road traffic accident as a passenger following collision with another vehicle which was in a police pursuit
  • Significant scarring injury to a child due to the defective construction of a loft hatch in her home
  • Significant psychological trauma as a result of a sexual assault in a restaurant

Tim also has a track record of succeeding in cases where previous solicitors instructed have withdrawn from the claims including:

Acting for an HGV driver who sustained arm injuries when a trailer collapsed onto him – this claim was won following a 2-day trial even though he had been dismissed by his employers for gross misconduct as a result of his accident and his union solicitors and declined to go ahead with the claim.

Acting on behalf of a radiographer who slipped on ice on a hospital car park sustaining a significant arm fracture -this was again won at trial after union solicitors had withdrawn accepting the hospitals assertions that the car park had been properly gritted without testing the evidence to support that.

Tim is also a fellow of the Association of Personal injury Lawyers.

  • “Our family had already used Tinsdills Solicitors prior to this case so we were confident in their knowledge and expertise as a firm. But Tim Cogan was beyond faultless in every aspect of this matter. His decisive actions and professionalism throughout were unquestionable and all whilst maintaining a personable approach. I never needed to ask any questions or raise any queries as Tim had already pre-empted every scenario possible. He truly is a craftsman. Every detail was looked over with a fine tooth comb and we were facilitated in every single way. We could not have done it without him.”

  • “I was recommended Tinsdills through a friend who had used them previously for other services. So after visiting their website and researching online, I really liked what I saw. My case was handled by Tim Cogan and he was simply brilliant. His direct approach to my case paired with his frank and open communication made me feel comfortable and confident that he would achieve the best results for me. It wasn’t simply about receiving compensation, but also about justifying my claim and if nothing else, making improvements so that others didn’t fall foul. Tim consistently kept me informed at every stage throughout my claim, it’s clear that he has a vast amount of experience as they way he handles and anticipates every scenario is exceptional. I would most definitely recommend his services to others.”

    Mr Gath, Stoke on Trent

  • “I had never used a solicitor for a personal injury claim before, but a friend recommended Tinsdills Solicitors to me and I was so impressed by the service I received. From the offset everything was clearly explained both over the telephone and via emails. The process was simply seamless and made even easier by the expert guidance of Tim Cogan. Throughout the process Tim and his team organised various appointments with consultants on my behalf, all of the administrative burdens were removed which made life so much easier. I am very grateful for all Tim has done for me, I couldn’t be happier to recommend Tim’s services, and I will certainly use Tinsdills Solicitors again in the future.”
