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.
The family have been left devastated at losing Kate. She was not just a family member but also acted as a carer for her parents who have suffered ill-health themselves.
“This incident shows the impact that road collisions can have and it is important that people take note ensure that road safety is a priority for all drivers. We will now continue to support the family through this difficult time.”
“Through our work, we see first-hand the incredibly difficult circumstances that many parents face after a child has suffered serious injury or illness.
“While such parents are understandably focused on caring for their little ones, they also need to look after themselves and, with this in mind, we were keen to help as soon as we got wind of this fantastic project.
“We are delighted to be able to help Derriford Hospital and hope this donation will go some way towards ensuring that parents have access to top-class facilities when they visit and stay at the site.”
“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.”
