Page 18 Legal Aid Fraud by Lester Aldridge & Karen Thompson


After I had been home from hospital for a few days Alan rang Lester Aldridge again, and asked for an appointment for a ‘Free Advice meeting’.


They told him they would come to us, considering how badly injured I was. I remember thinking this was very nice of them!

Karen Thompson came to see us on 26th April 1995, and stayed for about an hour. We told her about my accident, how the driver had driven straight through me at 100mph and failed to stop. We said I’d been unconscious, unable to move and had convulsions after the 1st operation. We then told her we were worried, I hadn’t seen a Neurologist, because the Nurses kept saying I should see one before I left the hospital. 

We told how I’d been sent home from hospital without seeing a Dr and were very worried about my spinal injuries, thinking I may have had a broken neck.  I must point out at this time we didn’t know this was negligence, we were just desperately trying to get me some help to get well. We mentioned my eyesight problems, and said the nurse had broken my wrist as it wasn’t plastered. Pretty much everything had been discussed. 

Karen Thompson Solicitor, told us how experienced she was, how she had been a Nurse, prior to becoming a Solicitor. She told us this meant she understood my injuries and knew all the right people to send me to, to get my injuries assessed. How the first thing she would do would be to send me urgently to a Neurologist. Then she left after we told her we would have a think about it as we had several other Law Firms to see.

We had been impressed by all she’d told us, particularly the part where she said she had previously been a nurse, understood my injuries and would know who to send me to, to get help with these issues.  Especially the part about sending me to a Neurologist.

We were struggling terribly to deal with all that had happened at this time, and with a third operation coming up, hadn’t managed to arrange to see another Legal Expert. 

On the 15th May we saw Dr Salter, Orthopaedics Consultant.

On the 15th May we saw Dr Salter, Orthopaedics Consultant.

Dr Salter said he too was very worried about how confused I was and about my spinal pain.

We were so impressed with Karen Thompson’s ‘False Promises’ and, realising I desperately needed help, came home and phoned Lester Aldridge, saying we’d like to go ahead. Karen Thompson said she was delighted and would see us on her way home!

When she arrived she talked about Insurance Policies and told us not to use our Legal Insurance Policy I’d taken out with my Bike Insurance. She said I was much better applying for Legal Aid. I didn’t know this was a Solicitor’s favourite Meal Ticket and would give her total control to an endless pot of legal fees!  

She still took our Policies with her though, which we always found very strange! They were never returned either.

We asked about the Neurologist, thinking I would now be sent urgently to see one, as she’d promised.  She said as I’d be seeing Dr Burns on the NHS at Poole Hospital, who was an excellent Neurologist, I would be much better off in his hands and to wait until I had seen him first, an appointment which was another four months away. We were somewhat confused by this, after her previous ‘promises’. But bowed to what we thought was a greater knowledge, but which we now know was her first act in covering up Poole Hospital’s negligence. Dr Burns is purely a Neuro Rehab specialist, not a Neurologist at all.

This is Legal Negligence and Fraud, she is now covering up what she knows to be Medical Negligence.

Karen Thompson, Lester Aldridge, had just taken on my case, knowing I had been negligently treated at Poole Hospital.

This is illegal as she had a massive 'Conflict of Interest’, because she knew most or all of the Dr’s concerned, and was married to Rheumatology Consultant Dr Paul Thomspon who worked, and still works at the Poole & Bournemouth Hospitals. 

Dr Paul Thompson was head of Rheumatology where I would later be deliberately misdiagnosed, to continue the cover up of my Syrinx, Deviated Septum, broken neck, back and coccyx. Whilst also deliberately failing to diagnose my Post Traumatic Hypothyroidism.

Hypothyroidism leaves you with a foggy brain, unable to think clearly, which on top of a Brain Injury rendered me helpless. 

Karen Thompson knew I hadn’t seen a Consultant Neurologist or Neurosurgeon & that we thought I had something terrible wrong with my spine, possibly a broken neck.  She knew my wrist had been re-broken, yet did nothing, calculatedly returning me to the care of the Negligent Dr’s at this hospital.

Lester Aldridge and Poole Hospital had major connections at this time and still do. Poole Hospital and Lester Aldridge, were and still are, on many of the same Committees in the Local Community.

Lester Aldridge managed many Charitable Funds etc., for Poole Hospital. 

They may well have had an illegal agreement in place.  In return for advertising their services as Personal Injury Claims Lawyers in the hospital, they covered up any Negligence they found?

Karen Thompson, Lester Aldridge also illegally charged my Legal Aid Fund at this time, claiming costs for 2 hours of Legal Advice and travelling time to and from my home on the 26th April. This was in fact a Free Legal Consultation, and I hadn’t even hired her at this point. I didn’t hire Karen Thompson of Lester Aldridge until 15th May 1995. 

This was just the start of massive Legal Aid Fraud by Karen Thompson and Lester Aldridge LLP! There would be much more to come! 

During the following six years she would use my legal aid fund, to which I was contributing, in totally illegal and fraudulent ways.

She used my Legal Aid Fund to pay Dr Ellis as a Medical Expert in my case.  Trouble is, I never once saw Dr Ellis as a Neurologist in a Private Medical Expert Capacity.

Dr Ellis has committed Fraud in taking payments from the Legal Aid Board via Lester Aldridge for which he could be prosecuted. For God sake, I never even saw him as a Neurologist on the NHS!

The only time I ever saw Dr Ellis, Neurologist, was when he sat in on my final Neuro Rehab appt with Dr Burns on the NHS!

She also used Dr Burns as my Medical Expert, whom I also never saw in a Private Capacity as a Medical Expert.

I think we can safely assume Dr Burns also took money illegally from the Legal Aid Board via Lester Aldridge for which he could be prosecuted.

Karen Thompson employed Mark Lomas as my Barrister paying him from my Legal Aid Fund. 

Except he wasn’t acting in my Interests he was employed by Lester Aldridge to help them cover up Poole NHS Trust Hospitals Negligence. 

This is totally illegal and another criminality they could all be prosecuted for.

Dr Nick Moffat acted as the liaison to Karen Thompson at Lester Aldridge and Poole NHS Trust Hospital, not as my Medical Expert at all.

He too was paid illegally from the Legal Aid Fund when he was actually working for Poole NHS Trust Hospital to cover up it's Negligence.  

He only saw me once in a Private Capacity, all other appointments were NHS.  

He too could be prosecuted for taking illegal payments from the Legal Aid Board via Lester Aldridge under false pretences.

The list goes on!
