Below, Bruce answers some questions about his work.
Typically, what type of accidents do you see in Bath?
“It’s probably fair to say that there’s no ‘typical’ accident scenario. Every case is unique in some way and some are very novel indeed. The important thing is that whatever the nature of the accident, every client receives the same time, care and attention to detail.”
What is your largest claim settlement?
“Over the years in Bath, we’ve had a number into seven figures. The largest was £3.5 million, but it’s important to remember that damages are never a windfall, they’re calculated carefully to compensate your past and future financial loss. Therefore, if you’re receiving a seven-figure sum, sadly, you will not be in a good way.”

What do you enjoy most about your job?
“That’s easy – my clients. The nature of personal injury litigation means I have a lot of contact with them. Understandably, in many cases when I first meet them following their accident, they’re at a low ebb. As time goes by, in many cases it’s very rewarding to be able to play a part, however small, in helping them to return to fitness, get back to work and, hopefully, resume a normal life.”
“Thank you so much for everything. This is a lifechanging amount of money and it’s just an incredible relief that my family have this financial security.” TB, BLB client
What is the most difficult thing about your job?
“The nature of my work means that I can never totally switch off and leave work behind. My clients have often been seriously injured and rely on me to help them to rebuild their lives through arranging rehabilitation, medical appointments, interim payments – the list goes on. Ultimately, I must ensure they recover the maximum possible compensation to protect them for the future.”
In most cases we are able to act on a No Win/No Fee basis. Read more about who pays the legal costs.
Why did you become a personal injury lawyer?
“It sounds odd now but I studied law because I was so taken by a US TV series in the ‘70s called ‘The Paper Chase’. I had images of being one of those fictional law students at an Ivy League university. In fact, I ended up at the University of East Anglia which, whilst it wasn’t Harvard, was and remains an excellent Law School. On graduation I began my legal career in-house with Norwich Union (now Aviva). It was a fantastic opportunity and the training was excellent but I wasn’t particularly comfortable working for an insurance company and came to realise that I was more interested in representing and standing up for injured individuals.”
Do you have a stand-out case?
“There are quite a few, but a good example was a client who was injured when a mediaeval cannon was fired! It just brings home the idea that no one can necessarily foresee what can and will happen and that health and safety is an issue for everyone, not just an employer or a motorist.”
