Gaggan Mawi

Gaggan is an Associate in the Military Claims team, having joined Bolt Burdon Kemp in September 2016.  She specialises in complex personal injury and clinical negligence claims for serving and former military personnel and their families.

Gaggan is frequently instructed to act in high-value claims.  She has extensive experience in cases involving catastrophic accidents, including spinal and brain injuries.  Gaggan is also well versed in claims relating to Non-Freezing Cold Injuries and represents clients in claims for sexual harassment within the Armed Forces.

She is experienced in complex clinical negligence claims involving spinal surgery, missed and delayed diagnosis of Cauda Equina Syndrome, amputation cases and pain cases involving mistakes made both by civilian doctors/hospitals and the Ministry of Defence’s medical teams.

Gaggan’s focus on military claims has honed her understanding of the unique environment faced by serving personnel, veterans and their families, such as the complexities of returning to civilian life and how her clients’ experiences could have translated into future careers and opportunities if they had not suffered injury.  When coupled with her experience representing those with serious life-changing injury she is always mindful of the importance of assessing their needs at an early stage and doing everything that she can to ensure that her clients have the best access to rehabilitation and medical experts, wherever possible.

Gaggan is committed to working closely with her clients, advising and supporting them throughout the litigation process.  She fights hard to obtain early admissions of liability to secure her clients access to interim damages to help fund immediate needs.  She has a proven track record of achieving high value settlements and prides herself on delivering excellent client satisfaction.

Gaggan was an assessor for the Law Society’s Catastrophic Injury Panel.

  • My solicitor, Gaggan, was fantastic.  She couldn't have been more helpful towards me.  My mental health did take a turn for the worse dealing with this case and she recognised this very quickly and even contacted a charity on my behalf to get me help.  Something I will always be extremely grateful for.  With this case being difficult for myself to go through I was dealt with fantastically and courteously.  People showed patience towards me and was extremely helpful at every step.

  • I was recommended to the firm by the British Legion and I am very grateful for this!  I never thought I’d find such a great team to deal with my case.  I worked with Gaggan and Hannah and both of them were superb.  They provided me with an amazing service and never bombarded me with stuff.  They gave me just enough information as was needed and always got back to me.  I never found it overwhelming because of them.

    Military claims client

  • I was personally recommended to Bolt Burdon Kemp and from the first to the last contact with them, they were absolutely amazing.  My case was dealt with by Ahmed and Gaggan and they were both brilliant, they put me at ease right away, were easy to talk to and always did what they said they were going to.  I had absolute confidence in them at all times, I received honest and realistic advice about what could and could not be achieved and was treated with respect and care at every stage, they managed my expectations throughout.  I would not hesitate to recommend either of them for anyone else seeking advice.
