Recent Cases

Working closely with my clients throughout the life of their claim means that I am able to build a rapport with my clients, dealing with each client as an individual and approaching each case with a mixture of tenacity and empathy to ensure I achieve the best results for my clients.

I recently acted for a whole family who were seriously injured by a reckless driver when cycling on holiday. All three of the family suffered serious life altering injuries including orthopaedic and psychological injuries.  By working closely with the family we were able to secure compensation that made provision for future treatment needs and adaptations to their home and lifestyle that may be required.

I acted for a lady who suffered a broken neck and psychological injuries after the car she was travelling crashed into a wall. As a result of her injuries my client required specialist treatment of her psychological injuries, the best provision for which was private treatment. Despite arguments from the insurance company we were able to recover the costs of the private treatment for my client in full together with a six figure sum in compensation.

In another road traffic accident claim my client suffered an amputated limb after she involved in a very serious multi-vehicle road traffic accident. My client had a young family and therefore, as part of that claim, we worked closely to ascertain what the families needs were going to be in the future and ensure they had the accommodation and help they needed.
