Myfanwy Buckeridge

Myfanwy joined the firm in 2004 having represented and supported Claimants through their personal injury claims since 1990.

She has broad experience of all types of personal injury claims ranging from road traffic and construction site accidents to heavy industry employment-related claims. Myfanwy now specialises in serious injury claims including head injuries, spinal injuries and fatal accidents. She has a particular interest in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Myfanwy frequently takes over cases from other firms of solicitors which require swift assessment, investigation and conclusion of cases, often with tight deadlines. She is keen to establish early access to rehabilitation for her clients and is familiar with arranging for the provision of complex care packages to promote the best possible recovery and to alleviate pressure on family members.

She believes that having a good understanding of her clients is the way to secure the best results.

Myfanwy is listed as a ‘Recommended Lawyer’ in the Legal 500 2024 listings.

Myfanwy is recognised in Chambers and Partners UK 2024 for her advice on significant cases arising from accidents at work and RTAs, which often encompass brain and orthopaedic injuries. One testimonial says, “She is an experienced solicitor who is easy to work with and brings good outcomes for her clients.”

Myfanwy has conducted personal injury seminars with membership organisations and lectured to doctors. She also sits as an Assistant Coroner in the Avon Coroner’s Court.
