Sofie Toft

Associate Solicitor

Biography

I am an Associate in the Serious Injury team based in London. I joined Irwin Mitchell in 2011.

I specialise in complex serious injury claims including cases where my client has suffered a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury. I also represent clients who have suffered serious orthopaedic injuries or amputation, as well as those who suffer with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). I regularly represent the families and dependants of people who have been killed as the result of an accident.

I deal with a full spectrum of accidents, including claims relating to road traffic accidents, accidents at work and Occupiers' Liability claims.

I help with claims for children as well as for adults.

I am an APIL accredited brain injury specialist. 

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

The most rewarding aspect of my role lies in using the personal injury process to ensure that my clients gain access to the therapies, medical treatment, care and financial support that they need following their injury. By securing funding from opponents at an early stage, a personal injury claim can assist to maximise a person's recovery, to increase their independence and, in some cases, to assist them to get back to work following a life changing injury.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

The firm has a fundamental commitment to helping its clients not only with compensation, but also rehabilitation, and it's this that I value most. Moreover, as full service firm we have the benefit of being supported by colleagues with specialisms across a broad range of areas - such as Court of Protection, public law, family law and employment law. These areas are often linked in personal injury claims: and so when issues arise, we're able to draw on the expertise and support of our colleagues to ensure that we can provide all-round solutions for our clients.
