Kate Petchey



I am a senior solicitor in the Serious Injury team, based in Sheffield. I represent clients who have suffered serious and life-changing injuries as a consequence of all types of accidents including road traffic collisions and accidents in public places.

Within the field of serious injury, I specialise in cases involving children and young adults who have suffered brain injuries, and head up the team responsible for running paediatric claims.  I have many years of experience of dealing with the specific issues which arise when a child/young adult is injured, including all matters relating to education, and the long-term consequences of injuries sustained at a young age.

I have extensive knowledge of the key issues which arise in serious injury claims, and an excellent reputation amongst colleagues and peers for my work in the field. I am dedicated to ensuring claims are handled sensitively and professionally, working closely with the families of those injured and ensuring access to rehabilitation to achieve the optimum result for my clients. 

I have been with the firm since starting my training contract in 2001, qualifying into the Serious Injury team in 2003.
