Experience

After graduating from Liverpool John Moores University, Tejal completed the Legal Practice Course at Leicester De Montfort University. Prior to joining George Ide, Tejal gained legal experience working for law firms in the Midlands and the North West of England.

She then trained at Barnetts Solicitors, going on to work for a personal injury law firm where she gained invaluable experience of working closely with nationally recognised insurance companies. At this time Tejal advised insurers in relation to claims being made against them in areas such as road traffic accidents, employer’s liability and public liability claims.

Tejal also provided insurer clients with comprehensive advice on the legal costs of claims as well as negotiating formal bills of costs.

On joining George Ide, Tejal had responsibility for a fast track road traffic accident caseload, which involved elements of credit hire, before being offered the opportunity of assisting one of George Ide’s partners in dealing with catastrophic injury claims.

Tejal now assists in undertaking claimant work of a high value, and has gained a wealth of experience in dealing with brain-injured clients with a particular focus on catastrophic injury and rehabilitative services.

From her past experience to date, Tejal has developed skills that enable her to maintain positive relationships with clients by taking the time to understand their needs. She also makes effective use of her negotiation and communication skills to ensure that she acts in clients’ best interests at all times.
