About Charlotte Dowson
I am a Senior Solicitor in the Complex Injuries team at Bolt Burdon Kemp having joined the firm in 2019.
I qualified as a Barrister in 2012 before cross-qualifying as a Solicitor in April 2017.
I have specialised in helping people who have sustained serious injuries since September 2013. Initially I assisted injured service personnel and their families in making claims against the Ministry of Defence due to a wide range of issues. I also have considerable experience in general workplace accident claims where workers have sustained serious injuries such as traumatic and elective amputations, crush injuries, complex orthopaedic injuries and where they have developed psychological conditions. I also assist families of workers who have suffered fatal accidents and have considerable experience of inquests.
In addition to the above I have been involved in a wide range of cases including those relating to accidents in public places (including claims against local authorities, businesses and individuals) and road traffic collisions (including claims involving complex indemnity issues and claims against the Motor Insurers’ Bureau where the driver responsible for the collision is either uninsured or untraced). I have helped people who have sustained a variety of injury types, ranging from complex orthopaedic injuries to traumatic brain injuries.
I have a particular interest in workplace accident claims, Animals Act claims and equestrian related claims.
I previously ran a Legal Advice Clinic at Headway East London and I am an accredited Senior Litigator with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
I obtained a First Class degree with honours from Sheffield Hallam University. I then obtained a grade of Very Competent on the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) and a Distinction on the Legal Practice Course (LPC), both at BBP Law School in Leeds.
