Rebecca Maddock



I work as part of a team in Newcastle and Middlesbrough who act for people who have sustained brain injuries or spinal injuries as a result of an accident. I have been working with adults and children with brain and spinal injuries for over eight years, helping them to obtain financial compensation for their injuries. I help clients to obtain early payments in their case so that they can pay for rehabilitation that will help to improve their quality of life. Rehabilitation includes things such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological therapy, assistance from support workers and vocational training to help people to return to work.

I am a member of the Newcastle Law Society, the Tees Valley Law Society, the North of England Medico-Legal Society and the Spinal Injuries Association. I am an APIL-accredited litigator.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I like helping people and solving problems. I wanted to become a lawyer dealing with serious injury claims so that I could do my absolute best to provide clients with the legal advice they need and help them to improve their quality of life. People who have sustained serious life changing injuries need someone to advocate for them to ensure that they receive the support, treatment, therapy and financial compensation that they need, and to ensure that their needs are met for the rest of their life.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

It gives me great satisfaction working as part of a team of highly dedicated personal injury experts (made up of lawyers, legal assistants, financial advisors, quantum analysts and where appropriate, experts in the Court of Protection, education, employment or public law teams). We work closely together with the common aims of implementing rehabilitation for clients, improving our client's quality of life and carefully calculating the amount of financial compensation that our client will need to ensure that their needs are met for the rest of their life.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Irwin Mitchell is an innovative firm, its lawyers are tenacious and stand up for clients and are not afraid to challenge the law. Irwin Mitchell prides itself on delivering excellent client care and I am proud to be part of a firm which strives to deliver an extremely high level of service for clients.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I love spending time with my friends and family and in particular I enjoy cooking for them. I like reading, watching sport and listening to music, and I live in the countryside and enjoy outdoor activities including walking, riding my bike and running. I also enjoy working with various different charities in the community and helping to fundraise for a range of different charities whenever I can. I am the Chair of Headway Central Northumberland, which is a branch of the national charity Headway, the brain injury association. I have travelled to many different countries over the last 12 years. My favourite place I have been to is New Zealand.

    Settlement For Boy Left Deaf After Severe Head Injury

    This was an unusual incident in which Jack suffered very serious and life-changing injuries when he was just a year old. "The school overseen by the council could have supervised the autistic child better which may have prevented Jack from being tipped from his chair. "Jack will be likely to need help for the rest of his life and the settlement is based on expert medical evidence about his potential future needs. Hopefully it will give the family peace of mind that he will now receive the help he needs to realise his full potential."
