Brenda Mitchell

www.motorcyclelawscotland.co.uk

Brenda Mitchell has 27 years of experience in representing people with personal injury claims, specialising in cases involving motorcyclists who have been injured in road traffic accidents.

She is also a Champion for the development of cycling in Scotland and foundedBelles on Bikes in the Borders to encourage more women to get out on their bikes and enjoy the experience.

She is an Ambassador for Filles a Velo which helps women make the transition from riding sportives up into competitive cycling.

A passionate cyclist herself, you will always find Brenda out on either her bicycle or her motorbike!

“I’ve always taken a keen interest in motorcycling and obtained my full motorcycle licence in 1983. After my two children were born, I restricted my motorcycling exploits to off-road jaunts, but several years ago I decided it was time to make my two-wheeled return to the road.

Having dealt with the aftermath of so many motorcycle accidents, I started off with a visit to ProScot’s highly-regarded motorcycle training school.  Undertaking ProScot’s motorcycle refresher training and the Enhanced Rider Scheme gave me back my confidence and brushed up my skills.  To ensure I was as good as rider as possible, next, I completed several advanced courses run by John Macdonald of ProScot, including ProScot’s Cornering Skills course, which involved two days riding on some of the best roads in Britain.

Although it’s not necessary for a motorcycle accident lawyer to ride a motorcycle, I consider riding a motorcycle to be an important part of my role as it provides me with a full understanding and appreciation of motorcycle dynamics and control.

I was previously a Partner with a large personal injury legal practice and I’ve set up Motorcycle Law Scotland with Thompsons in order to provide a bespoke service to fellow motorcyclists. I am passionate about ensuring motorcyclists injured through no fault of their own receive the compensation they are entitled to. I strongly believe first class service and personal representation from experienced lawyers really does make a difference – not only to the outcome of a case but also to the motorcyclists and families involved.

I have provided some legal advice on a whole range of motorcycle accident and insurance related issues which I hope will be helpful to the motorcycling community. Read more>>

Recognising her success and expertise as a specialist Lawyer, Brenda was awarded Solicitor of the Year 2013 at the Law Awards of Scotland.

Brenda has recently won the BikeBiz Women of the Year 2015 – Pioneer Award having been listed as one of the Women in Cycling for 2015.
