I am a senior solicitor in the Serious Injury team in Sheffield, dealing almost solely with individuals who have suffered brain injury (or fatal injuries) usually as a result of road traffic collisions. My particular expertise is working with young people, as they progress through adolescence and into early adulthood.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
It is such a long time ago that I pursued law as a career, that I can barely remember what inspired me, but I have always had a strong sense of justice and I think this initially inspired me to pursue a legal career.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I particularly enjoy the practical aspects of my job, utilising my problem solving skills and helping clients and their families to come to terms with what has happened to them. Enabling clients to achieve success and fulfilment in other ways is a very rewarding aspect of my job.
What Do You Like About Working For Irwin Mitchell?
I enjoy the fact that I can specialise in working with people with brain injury. I don’t have to be a “jack of all trades and master of none”. I also value the support networks which are in place.
"Thank you again for all the work you did for us and which allowed X to have the happy life she now has." - Client's stepfather
"Caroline gave us our family back and for that we will be eternally grateful. We now have our son back, even though there will still be difficult days ahead. He is nearer the son we had before the accident. They got him the rehab and support he needed and I felt like I was no longer alone in helping him deal with the injuries and aftermath of the accident.
"I would like to thank Caroline from the bottom of our hearts for all her help and support, getting us through the difficult times, being there in person and at the end of the phone whenever we needed her." - Client's father
"I had a 9 year long settlement case with Irwin Mitchell acting as my legal team. The solicitors, in particular Tom Mather and Caroline Mitchell, worked extremely hard throughout the case to help me receive the settlement result that I needed following an accident in 2010 which resulted in me sustaining life-changing injuries. Since my case and settlement ended I decided to keep Irwin Mitchell to manage my assets because I was profoundly satisfied with their service over the previous decade" - 5* Trustpilot review
