I specialise in personal injury law and work in the Serious Injury team, representing people who have sustained life changing injuries in accidents. I act for people who have suffered serious orthopaedic injuries as well as brain and spinal injuries. I work to get them the support and rehabilitation they need to return, as far as possible, to the life they had before the accident.
I have always enjoyed working with people and I love meeting my clients, getting to know them and helping them through what is an extremely emotional and stressful time. The most rewarding aspect of my job is helping to ensure the needs of my clients are met at the time when they need it most.
I also act for clients who suffer from chronic pain and CRPS usually developed as a result of other injuries received in accidents. I specialise in understanding the treatment and management of this condition and in ensuring that each client receives the necessary rehabilitation and input they need to help with this.
“Headway Cornwall provides a vital service to those who have suffered a brain injury and their families, not only for the support they receive but for the opportunity to meet others living with the same condition, giving them the opportunity to talk about their feelings with someone who understands.
“We have seen first hand that for many of our seriously injured clients, early rehabilitation is crucial to improving their prospects of a better recovery. However, local authority cuts have been threatening Headway Cornwall's ability to provide support, so it has never been more important to raise awareness.
“At Irwin Mitchell we are delighted to be able to support and donate funds in aid of such a great cause and we look forward to supporting them in their continued provision of services in the Cornwall area.”
As this case shows, the consequences of failing to be fully aware of other road users while driving can be fatal and devastating.
“Mr Ford was a healthy, active man who devoted his time to caring for his wife who suffered dementia. His death has had a huge impact on the entire family’s lives and they understandably wanted to see justice for this.
“Road Safety Week is a time for all road users to think about their actions and ensure they act appropriately to keep themselves and others safe on the roads. Research has shown that distractions while driving can increase the risk of accidents and highlights the importance of remaining fully focussed on the road whilst driving.
“We have long supported Brake and the fantastic work it does raising awareness of safety on Britain’s roads. We hope this year’s road safety week makes people think twice about driving carelessly as Thomas’ case shows the devastating consequences it can have.”
This is a tragic case which illustrates the terrible consequences which can occur when dangerous operations are being carried out. Whatever conclusions are drawn from the facts of this case, Mr Maslin’s death highlights the need for companies to adequately risk assess what are often complex and dangerous operations, including those delegated to sub-contractors and ensure appropriate supervision and technical support is provided.
“Shaun was a loving family man and it remains incredibly difficult for his family to come to terms with what happened, particularly as it is clear steps could have been taken to make Shaun’s work safer.
“We will continue to support Lyndsey in a civil claim to provide the family with financial stability throughout their future and hope that this matter will now be resolved quickly so Lyndsey can concentrate on rebuilding their lives.”
Matthew suffered devastating, life-changing injuries in the collision that have left him needing 24-hour care and unable to continue with his job in the construction industry.
“It has understandably been frustrating for Matthew as a man in his 20s to remain living with his parents and he has been relying on them for every aspect of his care such as cooking, cleaning and getting dressed.
“The settlement we have secured will allow him to regain some independence and have a house of his own that is suitable for his wheelchair and with room for live-in carers to assist.
“We hope the end of the legal case allows Matt to begin looking to the future and gives him peace of mind that he has some quality of life back. Matt has shown extreme strength of character in the way he has dealt with his injury and we wish him all success for his new found abilities in wheelchair rugby”
