Tim graduated from the University of Manchester with a degree in law in 1989, and then went on to qualify as a solicitor in 1992.

He has specialised in personal injury work since 1998. Tim joined Levenes in 2000 and became a Partner in 2004.

In 2017, he became Head of Catastrophic Injury. Tim has worked on a number of challenging and high value cases involving spinal cord injurybrain injurylimb amputation and chronic pain cases. He has handled cases that resulted in multi-million pound settlements as well as taking cases to trial, the latest of them:-

  • £6.5m settlement for cyclist suffering tetraplegia after a collision with a car.
  • £5.25m settlement for passenger in a car who suffered partial paralysis, due negligence of the driver.
  • £3.5m settlement for brain damaged car passenger when the driver skidded on a road and crashed the car in a ditch.
  • £1.7m settlement plus £60,000 per year index linked tax free payment for life after brain injury.
  • £7.5m settlement for double below knee amputation of a road construction worker hit by a lorry that was out of control.
  • £5m settlement for pedestrian struck by a car as he was walking along the road.
  • £7.2m settlement for young man born with brain damage.
  • £1m settlement for man suffering multiple injuries when struck by a falling tree.

 

Most of Tim’s cases are clients who have been personally recommended to him including recommendations from counsel.

Tim’s expertise and experience in Brain and Head Injury claims work has been recognised by Headway, the leading Brain Injury charity which has appointed Tim as a member of the Headway Solicitors Directory, and by the Spinal Injuries Association for Spinal Cord Injury claims.

Tim has considerable experience in claims arising from accidents abroad where issues of jurisdiction arise.

He leads a team who specialise in representing clients who do not speak English. Members of his team are proficient in several languages and in some cases are dual qualified as solicitors in England and Wales as well as other jurisdictions.

Tim also acts as a Court of Protection appointed Deputy where clients are unable to manage their property or affairs or make financial decisions because they lack mental capacity, often after traumatic brain injury.

Tim is known for his strategic approach and has an ability to see the detail as well as the big picture. He relishes taking on difficult cases and has often succeeded in cases where others have failed.

Tim believes strongly in using the claims process to unlock funding for rehabilitation from the insurers.

Tim is passionate about helping seriously injured clients make the best possible recovery from their injuries. He is a strong supporter of the Rehabilitation Code of Practice and enjoys working with clients, case managers and experts to get the best possible outcome for the client.

He spends much of his time in conferences with client’s and experts as well as drafting complex schedules of loss, and attending settlement meetings where claims are often settled.

Although he attends court from time to time, his careful preparation of cases, is often the key to the other party wanting to negotiate to avoid going to court.

Tim’s clients love his down to earth approach. He is known for his ability to take on challenging cases and he has the knack of explaining complex issues in a way that is easily understood. The rapport he has with clients puts them at ease, removing any anxieties or worries that they might have had.

Tim handles a range of cases, but reserves his greatest passion for representing cyclists, as a cyclist himself. One of his biggest settlements was for a cyclist who suffered tetraplegia after a collision with a car.

In his spare time, Tim rides his bike as often as he can. He has cycled from Lands End to John O’Groats (raising £2,500 for the Spinal Injuries Association and the Child Brain Injury Trust) as well as a solo ride from Calais to the Mediterranean. He has ridden the London-Surrey 100 sportive, also in aid of the Spinal Injuries Association.

He is also a more than competent boater, and has enjoyed boating holidays in England, Ireland, Belgium, Holland and France. He holds an International Certificate of Competence for the Navigation of Powered craft in Inland Waterways.

Tim is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers who are dedicated to furthering the interests of accident victims.

He is also a member of the Pan-European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers (PEOPIL), The London Cycling Campaign, and Push Bikes- the Birmingham Cycling Campaign.

Levenes Solicitors are in the Headway Solicitors Directory for Brain Injury Claims and The Spinal Injuries Association Solicitors Directory for Spinal Cord Injury claims.

His professionalism and huge knowledge are everything what I need… 5* Trustpilot review

Excellent service. They took my case from another unreliable Solicitor who was absolutely rubbish. They took it round and acted immediately achieving awesome good result. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anybody. Specially Tim who help me with everything. His professionalism and huge knowledge are everything what I need. Thank you very much.

Close personal attention and prompt response to any questions…  5* Trustpilot review

My father was knocked off his bike by a motorist cutting a corner, shattering his left tibia and leading to the need for major surgical reconstruction. Even before we commissioned his services, Tim Beasley from Levene’s guided us through the process of preparing his case and later of making a Personal Injury claim. Tim’s close personal attention and prompt response to any questions instilled confidence from the start, and his terms were very competitive. Despite the driver’s attempt to duck liability at first, the claim led to a timely and very satisfactory payment from the driver’s insurers. Thank you! Couldn’t recommend more highly.

When you sustain a brain injury… Tim and his team looked after me… 5* Trustpilot review

When you sustain a brain injury, the world seems a scary place and Tim and his team looked after me despite throwing my toys out the pram a few times and were patient, knowledgeable, reassuring and did the very best to get me compensated for my injuries. Cant recommend Tim and his team enough.

Having unfortunately been involved in a serious road traffic accident that led to 2 months in hospital I would highly recommend Levenes for anyone in a similar situation. Tim and Colin were always very helpful and spared time for visits or phone calls when needed.

Thank you for your support and guidance Tim Beasley, recommend Levenes for complex, multi-jurisdictional cases… – 5* Trustpilot review

A serious non-fault collision in France left me unsure what my legal rights were. I found Levenes solicitors online and they had the skills and experience to explain the process so that I was able to confidently bring a case in the UK. Tim Beasley was professional and understanding, particularly when the diagnosis of PTSD was confirmed. Even though I often felt overwhelmed by the accident, the legal case and subsequent treatment, he was able to help me complete all the necessary elements with compassion, patience and an unfailing ability to make a complex process easy to manage. Communication was second to none (with a particular acknowledgement to Mehtap Arslan) and I highly rated the secure system for the sharing of documents and sensitive information. I was more than satisfied by the resolution, I felt that everybody did their best to represent my case properly and a fair result was reached. I would confidently recommend Levenes for complex, multi-jurisdictional cases.

To anyone who has suffered a life changing injury… – 5* Trustpilot review

To anyone who has suffered a life changing injury, I recommend Levenes. They will take great care of you and be there for you every step of the way. Levenes Solicitors are not just a law firm, they are amazing people, who work very hard. I am really grateful that I instructed them to work on my personal injury case and I have now been awarded a substantial amount of compensation for my injuries and my financial losses. They provided me with great care and the support of the best doctors in Great Britain and a case manager to help coordinate everything. When I was in a difficult financial situation, I was not left alone, they helped me. They called me after every surgery to check if I was OK and if I needed anything else – that was really nice, and I was really happy that I was not left alone. I cannot imagine that someone else could have handled my case, and thanks to them I was able to have all surgeries on a private basis and I have obtained the compensation I deserved. This is amazing because now my future is financially secured. Levenes are also people who bring perfect family atmosphere, and after our journey they are like family to me.

Best solicitors I could’ve asked for!… – 5* Trustpilot review

Tim and Ali both made the process of claiming compensation straightforward and efficient. They talked me through each stage with patience and consideration, as this was my first dealing with solicitors. I am extremely happy with their service and couldn’t have asked for anymore from them both! Will most definitely recommend Levenes Solicitors to anyone looking for compassion, hard work and great results!

I was injured in a serious accident, even when the insurance company still denied liability, and previous solicitors closed my case, they did not give up… – 5* Trustpilot review

I was injured in a serious accident at work when operating a crane. The load fell on me and I was knocked to the ground and I injured my knee. I was represented by another solicitor but when the insurance company denied liability, they turned me down. I lost all hope and thought that I would not be able to claim. I was going to give up, but then I turned to Levenes Solicitors and instructed Dagmara Sztynyk and Tim Beasley. They gave me no guarantees but they agreed to look at my case and after they did so, they said they thought that we could win. The previous lawyers had missed some good arguments that they thought we could make to win the case. So they took over my case and started court proceedings for me. I am pleased to say that they were able to get a settlement. I did not have much hope but Levenes restored my hope. Even when the insurance company still denied liability, they did not give up. They were amazing and I cannot be more grateful to them for getting such a great result for me. I am so glad that I called them. During the case, they kept me regularly up to date. They looked at every detail of my case and made me feel confident when I had doubted my own case. They were really friendly and easy to deal with. I cannot thank them enough and I would recommend them to anyone.

Solicitors firm that genuinely care about cyclists… – 5* Trustpilot review

Fantastic to find a Solicitors firm that genuinely want to help cyclists who have been involved in a crash. Everything was explained clearly to me and the process was taken care of by one of the directors, a cyclist himself, who was patient and professional. Their fees are very fair and their advice invaluable. I can highly recommend this firm.

Fantastic Service, Tim was extremely helpful… – 5* Trustpilot review

I contacted Levenes after a road traffic accident I was involved in, where I was hit by a car off my bicycle at a red light. My initial call was answered by Tim Beasley, Partner (and enthused cyclist as it transpired). Tim was extremely helpful and gathered as much information as he could over the telephone. Thereafter, Tim promptly emailed his paralegal, Lyuba Karakaneva with all the details, including me in the cc so everyone was kept updated. Once Lyuba received the email from Tim she arranged a phone call with myself to talk me through the process and commission payables etc. Since day 1, she has been nothing but exceptional- providing a first class service.

The words can’t express the gratitude to you and Mr Tim Beasley for dealing with my case. I would like to let you know that today I have received a letter with the cheque, so I’m heading to the city centre to spend my long-awaited money 😊! On a more serious note, you are 100% professional, but above all of that, you are a very kind and lovely person (I just feel it from the tone of your voice 😉). I enjoyed our telephone conversations; despite the fact they were not about nice stuff.

I want to thank Ewa Kosim and Tim Beasley from the deep within the depths of my heart for fantastic co-operation and positive outcome in our personal injury case. Thank you for finalising our case. It was a period of very hard work for Levenes Solicitors and us, but all of this can be put behind us now. I will never forget the day when I completed my enquiry form on your website about my husband’s accident. At the time I could not imagine that you would win such a difficult case. Ewa and Tim, your professionalism and big hearts have helped to get such an amazing settlement. We are very grateful for the amount of money you have won for us. Levenes solicitors should be recommended to other people in similar situations to ours. We wish you a lot of successful cases in the future.
