I'm a Senior Associate in the Military Injury team. I have extensive litigation experience in personal injury claims and represent service personnel in claims against the Ministry of Defence for a variety of injuries.
My specialism is noise-induced hearing loss and bullying and harassment claims. I'm an experienced litigator having handled personal injury claims for over 20 years.
What inspired you to get into law?
A sense of right and wrong is what inspired me to get into the law. I like to win in whatever I do. Channelling that into helping others make a difference in their life has driven me to the do the best for my clients.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Seeing what I do make a difference in a person’s life and helping clients change their lives for the better after being injured. My clients face life-changing consequences due to personal injury and if I can help change their lives for the better, then I feel like it’s all worth it.
What do you like to do away from the office?
I enjoy dressmaking. As well as the creative aspect I find it mentally challenging, but I thoroughly enjoy the challenge.My next project is to master making a tailored Chanel-style jacket.
I also enjoy running and spending time with family members.
"I would like to thank Carol Purang who is exceptional. I am very grateful for her support, compassion and guidance which she provided at every stage. Her patience and ability to clearly explain the complicated legal proceedings was admirable and very much appreciated. Without doubt, the past four and a half years have been life changing for me. Thanks to Carol and the team, I feel as though I can once again look forward to a positive future." - 5* Trustpilot review
"From the start of my case, Irwin Mitchell have always been professional from the off. The team who represented me was Carol, Gruffydd and Danielle. They are amazing people. Not only did they believe in me and help me, they counselled me throughout 4 years of litigation and when times got tough, they talked me through it and made me feel calm and gave me reassurance. This is an important part of litigation as I myself found it quite stressful but because these three were so thorough and built such a strong case, I always felt like they had my back.. Truly and honestly, I can’t thank them enough for what they have done for me and my family. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all. I’ll never forget what you did for me. Kindest regards, Chris" – 5* Trustpilot review

"First got in contact with Irwin Mitchell in 2017, with my case recently being settled. Dealt with Danielle & Carol who were completely professional, helpful & understanding throughout. Any questions or queries I had were answered almost immediately either by phone or e-mail and I was kept up-to-date every step of the way. Can't thank them enough for their help and would definitely recommend using them & Irwin Mitchell to anyone reading this." – 5* Trustpilot review
