Hannah Swarbrick

Hannah is an Associate Solicitor in the military team at Bolt Burdon Kemp, having joined the firm in September 2015.  She works on a wide variety of complex and high value personal injury and clinical negligence claims on behalf of service personnel and their families.

Since joining Bolt Burdon Kemp, Hannah has worked on pioneering litigation involving the wrongful prescription of the anti-malarial drug Lariam.  She has settled several clinical negligence claims against the MoD for delays in diagnosing and treating service personnel who have suffered with PTSD.  She has also secured significant financial compensation for a number of soldiers who have suffered non-freezing cold injuries, after been negligently exposed to the cold while attending training exercises.

She has significant experience in personal injury claims involving training accidents, defective work equipment, noise-induced hearing loss, harassment and stress at work.  She currently acts for a number of service personnel who have been subject to bullying and harassment during their military careers and regularly advises those pursuing service complaints.

Hannah is passionate about supporting her clients, many of whom have suffered life-changing injuries.  She has an understanding of the issues which affect service personnel whose careers have been ended by injury and the process of transition from military to civilian life.  She fights to secure early compensation to ensure that her clients’ care and treatment needs are met as soon as possible.

Prior to joining the firm she completed her training contract at a firm specialising in personal injury and clinical negligence and has worked on high value cases involving brain and spinal injuries.

  • I would like  to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and advise.  You are always available when I needed for help and am so grateful for your dedication and hard work. Absolutely it’s been pleasure and a joy working with you.  Am more than happy for the settlement claim offer and without you, it would have been really hard for us get the amount we have been offered. I would definitely recommend you and your firm to friends and family. You have changed my life completely and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thanks again Hannah, you are a star.

  • You were excellent in every way.  I can finally get closure on this time in my life.  Your firm and what it achieved for me has enabled my family and I to move forward with our lives – I never thought you would be able to change my life so much.  Hannah Swarbrick went completely beyond my expectations – she was supportive in every way – even when I was not well enough to deal with anything, she would call my wife to check on me.  She went far beyond what her job would expect of her.  She and your entire company are wonderful.

  • Bolt Burdon and Kemp provided an extremely professional and supportive service throughout, and worked extremely hard to ensure that I received a settlement offer well in excess of my initial expectations.  My solicitor, Hannah Swarbrick, was very pleasant and helpful to deal with.  She took the time to detail and help me understand the process and was exceptionally tolerant and understanding of my frustrations and patiently guided me to the correct course of action.

  • I would say I received first-class help and that Bolt Burdon Kemp did a brilliant job.  Hannah Swarbrick and Ahmed Al-Nahhas deserve special mention for working tirelessly to ensure that my claim was settled and that I was compensated for my injury.  From start to finish those two were always available to assist me with any query that I had, communication was excellent and always on time, they were helpful, they offered me great advice, they were friendly and I felt absolutely supported throughout the whole process.
