Natasha Fairs

Associate Solicitor

Biography

I am an associate solicitor in the serious injury and child abuse team in Irwin Mitchell’s London office.  I have a varied case load specialising in claims following accidents at work, road traffic accidents, public liability and child abuse. 

I bring claims against employers following injuries at work due to negligence and breaches of statutory duty. I specialise in claims following falls from height, manual handing or injuries caused by defective work equipment. I mainly represent clients with serious orthopaedic injuries and amputations. 

I also represent adult clients in claims against individual abusers and following abuse whilst at school, in children's homes and in the care of the local authority. I have experience in representing children in civil claims against local authorities where they were found to have been negligent after failing to remove children from their parent’s care after a catalogue of incidents of concern. 

I am accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) as a senior litigator. I am a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme and a member of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers (ACAL).

What inspired you to get into law?

I went into the law to make a difference and support people and their families during what can be the most difficult time in their lives. I provide them with clear advice and support them through their rehabilitation. 

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

The most rewarding aspect of my role is when I am able to help people improve their quality of life through the claim in addition to achieving significant settlements. Rehabilitation at the earliest opportunity is really important to me. Getting an injured person or a survivor of abuse access to treatment and support is extremely rewarding. 

What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?

Working for a specialist firm allows me to achieve the best results for my client. We all share the ethos of “making a difference” and this is evident in all the work we do. 

What do you do away from the office?

I spend the weekends with my young family usually enjoying good food and the great outdoors!
