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.
"I'm very happy with the hard work Rachel cox and Kate Venn have both put in with working with me. I would be truly lost without the input from these two ladies. They have helped me become who I am today with putting forward a team of people do each do their part in helping me in whatever way they did. I would definitely 110% recommend Irwin Mitchell solicitors to help with any individual who needs legal help. I'm truly thankful I had them behind me and don’t know where I would be if I didn’t have them. Thank you so much." - 5* Trustpilot review
"Kate Venn and Peri Baldwin have supported our family through a difficult time. They are professional yet friendly and extremely approachable. No question has been too small or trivial to answer and both ladies have been quick to respond and reassure even out of ‘normal’ office hours. We definitely feel that we are in good hands and they are clearly experts in their field. Would not hesitate to recommend Kate, Peri and Irwin Mitchell." - 5* Trustpilot review
