David Bell

Senior Associate Solicitor


Our associated firm, Irwin Mitchell Scotland LLP was established on 26 April 2011. At Irwin Mitchell Scotland LLP, I am involved in a variety of personal injury claims including employment related accidents, industrial diseases such as vibration white finger, industrial deafness and asbestos related conditions and a wide range of cases ranging from straightforward falls to cases with complex legal issues and significant injuries. I assess the cases coming into the Personal Injury department in Glasgow and advise clients on their prospects.

I have extensive experience of instructing and preparing cases in the Court of Session, the senior civil court in Scotland, and also of conducting personal injury cases in sheriff courts throughout Scotland.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I was attracted by the challenge of trying to make sure that people who had a case to make should always have the opportunity to do so and also because I enjoy trying to make a point!

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I enjoy the level of support and expertise which is available throughout the firm and the readiness of my colleagues to share their experiences with each other.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I play hockey competitively and enthusiastically, if not well, play squash weekly and am a very keen hill walker, getting out most weekends if possible and if my daughters' social arrangements permit it!

    Clutha Report: Lawyers Of Victims Reveal Hope For Long-Awaited Answers

    “There are many questions which still need to be answered following the tragedy at the Clutha Vaults. The central question is what caused both engines of a modern helicopter to flame out? “Many of our clients are desperate to know the answer to that question after a long and painful wait. Had the helicopter been fitted with the black box equipment, the answer to this crucial question may have been known and published by the AAIB at a much earlier stage. “We hope that the meetings between the AAIB and the victims this week and the publication of the final accident report will identify the full chain of events that led to this tragedy. With the benefit of the AAIB's findings, we hope that the victims, the industry and the authorities will fully understand what went wrong and that steps will be taken to improve helicopter safety and prevent a similar tragedy in the future.”
