I am an Associate in the International Personal Injury team specialising in group action work as well as dealing with highly complex individual matters. I deal with claims from the first point of contact through to conclusion. Over my 15 years with Irwin Mitchell I have worked on some of the largest group action claims against tour operators, securing millions of pounds worth of compensation for people who have suffered illness and whose holidays have been spoilt.
I have a proven track record at trial and have worked on ground breaking cases including the case of Eldridge and Others, which resulted in a judgment against a large UK tour operator when our clients became ill after holidays in Majorca.
I've dealt with a number of complex legionnaires cases where people have been left with significant injuries and have also experience in dealing with fatal accident claims. I have dealt with a wide variety of cases where people have suffered injury after an accident abroad.
I chose a career in law because I have always had a strong sense of justice and really wanted the opportunity to work with people on a day to day basis.
I am passionate about helping clients get the best possible result and I love the thrill of a successful negotiation and the team approach that is taken to the work I do.
I love the diversity that IM offers and the passion and empathy that is instilled in the team that work for IM.
I love live music events and any opportunity to have a dance. I enjoy camping and walking. I also enjoy theatre and comedy and am an avid reader that can often be found with my head buried in a crime thriller.
“We are very concerned by Debbie’s account of her family’s illness, especially how seriously ill Jude was during their time in Mexico.
“Gastric illnesses such as salmonella can have a significant long-term impact on those affected, with such problems often leaving people with long-term health symptoms from which they often never fully recover.
“We are determined to help the holidaymakers who have instructed us to obtain answers regarding the issues they have faced. As part of our investigation we would be keen to hear from anyone else who was affected or witness the problems at Sandos Caracol Eco Resort and Spa.”
“Gillian was looking forward to enjoying her first holiday with Isabelle, but instead they were not only left suffering with gastric illness, they also had to endure it in a room they felt was unclean and unsuitable.
“Cryptosporidium can be very serious for particularly vulnerable people such as Isabelle who is just two years old.
“No one goes on holiday expecting to suffer from illness problems, as Gillian and Isabelle both did, and then return home feeling even worse than when they left. In light of this case and the wider reported cases, we urge Thomson Holidays to look into the matter to prevent other holiday makers suffering with the same issues.
“If you also stayed at this hotel and suffered similar problems we would like to hear from you to assist with our enquiries.”
“Cryptosporidium can have serious health implications for those affected and in our work we have seen first-hand the long-term issues it can cause, from which some victims never recover.
“The reports that one of the victims is less than a year-old are deeply concerning and we would encourage anyone who has stayed at the Holiday Village Be Live Hotel and has since experienced gastric symptoms, to see their GP at the earliest available opportunity.
“We would like to speak to anyone who has stayed at the hotel and may be able to help our investigations.”
“The hand, foot and mouth disease outbreak at the Family Life Mar De Menorca is obviously extremely concerning as children are more susceptible to the disease and the hotel is advertised as a 'destination well suited to families'.
“The people who have contacted us were shocked that they were not informed of the outbreak before they arrived as many of them would not have chosen to stay at the hotel had they known of the problems. This is of particular concern for some holidaymakers who had young children and were pregnant at the time of their holidays.
“It is spread from person to person and can be spread from contact with contaminated surfaces so proper hygiene measures are key to the prevention of the spread of the infection. Our clients have told us that not all guests who were reporting illness were confined to their rooms and that they did not see many additional precautions in place to reduce the spread of the disease.
“They have also reported to us concerns they have about how details of the outbreak were communicated to guests at the hotel and they also have a number of hygiene and safety concerns we will be investigating in the hope of providing them with some answers about the way this outbreak was handled.
“We would like to hear from anyone who suffered similar problems at the hotel this summer who may be able to help with our investigations.”
