Richard Biggs

Senior Associate Solicitor
  • 0370 1500 100


I work in the Serious Injury team, specialising in complex and catastrophic injury cases. I am involved from the very start to the conclusion of every case, working to get each of my clients the very best possible rehabilitation from the outset to restore their quality of life quickly.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

Law is all I ever wanted to do. I remember choosing my A levels with that sole aim in mind. I have gradually worked my way up from dealing with the most straightforward of claims when I was a newly qualified solicitor, to the most complex of cases.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I am passionate about the work I do and give my all for my clients. An award of damages is just one part of the work I do and I believe the journey to the award is equally important.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Our great strength is that we work as a team, each member bringing different qualities and expertise to ensure our clients receive the highest possible level of advice and guidance.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I have a two young children who, as well as being my greatest achievements, keep me very busy away from the office. I love watching and playing all sports and am a keen runner, participating in half marathons. I'm just trying to get round to making that step up to 26 miles.

    Family Speak Out After Driver Who Caused Fatal Accident Is Sentenced

    “Road safety is a cause we are passionate about, as at Irwin Mitchell we see on a daily basis the impact that collisions like this can have on people’s lives. “Unfortunately, this is a heart-breaking example of the devastating, fatal consequences of this kind of collision and of drivers failing to be fully aware of other road users. “Due to the actions of one person, a fiancée has lost her future husband and a family has lost a son and a brother. “Nothing is more important than your own safety and the safety of others on the roads. It is vital that people remember this while driving. We will continue to work with Michael and the rest of the family to ensure they receive all the support they need following this sentencing.”

    “Julie and Mike’s crash was horrific and it is nothing short of a miracle they both survived. But the crash, for which both Mike and the HGV driver were blameless, has left Julie with a severe brain injury which has meant she has been unable to return to a job she loved and was exceptional at and struggles with many everyday tasks most of us take for granted. “We are delighted to have secured a settlement for Julie which will fund her ongoing rehabilitation and therapy and give her financial peace of mind so that she can hopefully work towards returning to independent living.”
