I have worked at Irwin Mitchell since 2014, although I have been working in personal injury since 2008.
I am a solicitor in the Serious Injury team and I work with people of all ages that have suffered injuries in a variety of accidents, including road traffic collisions, occupier's liability, employer's liability and public liability claims. I support my clients, not only in obtaining compensation but also making sure that they receive the best medical treatment, rehabilitation and specialist care possible.
I wanted to be a solicitor from a young age because I wanted to be part of a profession in which I could help people.
I am driven to provide my clients with the best possible legal advice and support at what is likely to be the most traumatic point in their lives. I strive to build strong professional relationships with my clients and work with them to achieve the best possible outcome for them. I enjoy nothing more than seeing my clients come through their accident and go on to achieve brilliant things.
Quite simply, the fact that our clients are at the centre of everything that we do.
Outside of work I can mostly be found chasing my little boy around, but when time (and energy!) allow I also enjoy running, and walking my two dogs.
"Just a few words to express how happy I was with the way my case was represented by Laura Bailey on behalf of Irwin Mitchell. From the very start the claim was explained to me step by step and I was more than comfortable at every stage. I have to add that I was more than happy with the final outcome and the way Laura handled the entire process," - Neil Cowood
With our work in helping those injured on the roads through no fault of their own, we regularly see the impact not obeying the Highway Code can have on people’s lives. Matthew’s story sadly is the latest example of this.
“Matthew has made great progress considering the seriousness of his injuries but he still faces a lengthy battle to try and overcome the multitude of injuries sustained the best he can.
“We will continue to work with Matthew and his family to make sure he gets the specialist help and support he needs to help boost his recovery and rehabilitation.”
Matthew’s life, and the lives of his family, has been turned upside down by the careless actions of the driver in this case.
“Matthew has made great progress considering the seriousness of his injuries but he still faces a lengthy battle to try and overcome the injuries he suffered the best he can.
“Sadly we all too often see the devastation that families suffer because of motorists not obeying the Highway Code. We are pleased that the driver has admitted his guilt, allowing Matthew to focus on his continued recovery.”
The recent string of accidents involving vehicles fitted with swinging arms indicates potential issues with safety standards.
“Three incidents have occurred in the last month and it is vital awareness of this issue is raised. Thorough investigations must be carried out into these serious incidents, which in one case have resulted in loss of life, and any failings highlighted should be addressed immediately to ensure all vehicles on the UK’s roads are safe and do not put other members of the public at risk.
These figures sadly indicate that drink-driving is still a major problem that needs close scrutiny and attention.
“Through our work we have dealt with a number of incidents where drink or drug-driving has been a major factor. We understand the serious and life-changing impact collisions can have on those involved and it is something that can’t be ignored.
“We would urge authorities to continue their work to tackle the issue of drink-driving and increase education in this area, as well as implementing regular testing in problem areas.
