Louise is a Partner in the Sheffield Serious Injury team. She has over 14 years of experience in acting for clients who have sustained serious brain and spinal cord injury.
Louise’s cases have won the Post Magazine’s Rehabilitation First Award (claimant’s solicitor category) for three successive years (2008 – 2010) demonstrating Louise’s strong ethos of maximising client recovery and prioritising rehabilitation in every case.
Louise was part of the legal team representing the claimant in the leading Court of Appeal Authority of Rowe v Dolman which tackled difficult issues of securing substantial interim payments, Statutory Services funding, life expectancy, periodical payments and the interaction of legislation regarding Statutory Services provision with damages recovery.
Two appearances in the Court of Appeal secured damages of close to £6 million (on a full liability basis) for the client which enabled him to live at home with a care team of his choice rather than being confined to a nursing home for the remainder of his life.

“This report highlights the need for an urgent review into the high level of incidents on the A18 in north east Lincolnshire.
“Crucially, this stretch of the A18 topped a list of roads which have shown little or no improvement in accident levels, and in this case have actually seen a significantly higher number of crashes.
“This shows that safety improvements should be a priority and any measures appropriate for this stretch of road should be considered.
“Through working with our clients we regularly see the impact of serious road accidents and families dealing with the loss of loved ones. Those who do survive often suffer life changing injuries and have to go through years of rehabilitation and physiotherapy to try and rebuild their lives.
“Obviously it is positive to see that the overall number of people killed and seriously injured on roads in Britain has fallen in recent years but the number of deaths and injuries still remains high, especially in the areas highlighted in the report.
“Looking into these roads should be a priority and if money is needed to improve them, then the Government should set adequate funds aside. Ultimately it is a small price to pay if it saves lives in future and prevent serious life changing injuries.”
“Every day we deal with people who have suffered a traumatic brain injury and it is really important that research projects such as this receive the support they need to really make a difference. With better rehabilitation, support and therapy, patients can often make a remarkable recovery and can regain a higher level of independence and quality of life.”
