I am a solicitor in the Serious Injury team and I work with people that have suffered injuries in a variety of accidents. I support my clients, not only in obtaining compensation but also making sure that they receive the best medical treatment, rehabilitation and specialist care possible.
I wanted to be a solicitor from a young age because I wanted to be part of a profession in which I could help people.
I am driven to provide my clients with the best possible legal advice and support at what is likely to be the most traumatic point in their lives. I enjoy building strong professional relationships with my clients and working with them to achieve the best possible outcome.
I enjoy working at Irwin Mitchell because they put their clients at the centre of everything that they do.
Outside of work I enjoy, running, reading and walking my dogs.
The recent string of accidents involving vehicles fitted with swinging arms indicates potential issues with safety standards.
“Three incidents have occurred in the last month and it is vital awareness of this issue is raised. Thorough investigations must be carried out into these serious incidents, which in one case have resulted in loss of life, and any failings highlighted should be addressed immediately to ensure all vehicles on the UK’s roads are safe and do not put other members of the public at risk.
These figures sadly indicate that drink-driving is still a major problem that needs close scrutiny and attention.
“Through our work we have dealt with a number of incidents where drink or drug-driving has been a major factor. We understand the serious and life-changing impact collisions can have on those involved and it is something that can’t be ignored.
“We would urge authorities to continue their work to tackle the issue of drink-driving and increase education in this area, as well as implementing regular testing in problem areas.
“Josh has been left devastated by his injuries and he still faces month of painful surgeries and rehabilitation to help with his recovery.
“Falls from height are among the most common causes of serious injury at work, but time and time again we see cases where employers fail to take basic steps to protect workers from harm.
“We welcome the HSE prosecution and hope that lessons are learnt by Clive Thompson Installations Ltd. The case should also act as a warning to all those in the construction industry of the importance of protecting workers to prevent anyone else from being put through the same suffering as Josh.
“We will now continue to work with his former employers to ensure he has access to the treatment and rehabilitation he needs, such as physiotherapy, as well as to give him financial security.”
Unfortunately, we continue to see cyclists injured on the UK’s roads, with many of these incidents taking place during daylight hours and notwithstanding the fact that the cyclists were wearing personal protective equipment such as helmets and reflective clothing.
“We welcome Brake’s campaign which reminds us all of the importance of increased vigilance when using the UK’s roads, particularly at this time of the year with shorter daylight hours.
“Both of these collisions have had a serious and significant impact on the lives of Mr Cowood and Mr Brooks, not only in terms of their physical injuries, the treatment that they have needed and their ongoing rehabilitation, but also from a psychological point of view as it has proved difficult for them to regain their confidence and enjoy cycling as they used to. We are now working with them to get the help they need to overcome their injuries and get their lives back on track.”
