Andrew McVerry is a Senior Solicitor specialising in Personal Injury Claims at Co-op Legal Services, based in Manchester.
Andrew works in the Fast Track Claims team and has considerable experience of dealing with a wide range of accident and personal injury claims across England and Wales.
Andrew has particular experience in personal injury claims in which liability is disputed. He particularly enjoys helping clients in this area, because for many people claiming compensation, getting the Defendant to acknowledge responsibility for the accident is often more important than the amount of compensation received.
Andrew successfully recovered over £60,000 compensation, including a substantial loss of earnings payment, for a 55 year old gym instructor. She was injured in an accident, as a result of which she was no longer able to continue taking classes at the gym. The Defendants had argued that her age was a barrier to successfully recovering compensation for her loss of future earnings.
Andrew successfully recovered over £200,000 compensation for a client who lived in rural Wales. She had to get taxis for the rest of her life as a result of an accident in which her eyesight was damaged, meaning that she could not see below a certain point and the DVLA revoked her driving licence.
Andrew successfully recovered £450,000 compensation for a 24 year old policewoman who sustained ankle injuries in an accident. Because of her injuries she could no longer work as a policewoman and has to wear orthotics in her shoes for the rest of her life.
Andrew studied Law (LLB Hons) at John Moores University, and in 2003 completed the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in Chester. He has worked in Personal Injury since getting an administration role in a small, two-partner firm in Altrincham. From there he moved to a mid-sized firm in Manchester where he progressed through a training contract to become a team leader. He joined Co-op Legal Services in May 2016.
