I am an Associate Legal Executive 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.
“Several holidaymakers have asked us to investigate what caused their illness at the Oasis Park in Salou.
We’ve heard reports from our clients that their illness may have been part of a wider illness problem as several other guests were also known to be ill.
Sadly, our clients have not got their Summer off to the best start as their well-earned holidays have been hit hard by gastric illness which has continued to affect them on their return home.”
“This family travelled to Egypt hoping for a memorable holiday to mark a special occasion. Unfortunately the holiday was spoiled by severe and horrible gastric illness which ended up with them needing medical treatment both on holiday and when they got back to the UK.
We are concerned by the information we have been provided. Our client and her family suffered for most of their time at the Desert Rose in Egypt, and Rachel and her young daughter are still plagued by symptoms several months on.
This case highlights not only the impact that gastric illness issues can have on holidaymakers, but also how in some instances they can even lead to further health problems.
As part of our investigation, we would be keen to hear from anyone else who may have also been affected by illness during a stay at this resort.”
“Chris and Hollie are concerned about what caused Oscar’s illness and have asked us to investigate. Salmonella is a dangerous infection which can leave lasting effects or even lead to fatality in some circumstances.
As part of our investigations, we are keen to hear from anyone who may have information about conditions at the Flamingo Beach Resort in Lanzarote.
If, during the course of our investigations, any hygiene issues are highlighted it is important that lessons are learned to hopefully prevent others falling ill in the future.”
“Robert is understandably upset and frustrated by the illness issues he faced following his break.
“A case of this nature really puts a spotlight on the massive impact that holiday illness problems can have, with Robert not only requiring time in hospital but also needing weeks off work. He is still struggling to come to terms with the illness he has suffered and is yet to make a full recovery.
“Through our work we are sadly all too aware of the devastating consequences of Legionnaires’ disease and there are strict guidelines in place to help control the development of the bacteria that causes the disease.
“We are now investigating how Robert fell ill and are determined to help him obtain answers regarding how the problems emerged.”
