I specialise in complex personal injury claims arising out of accidents and incidents on the roads. I have a particular interest in long term pain conditions and psychological and psychiatric responses to incidents, as well as cases involving head injury.

In addition, I deal with a large number of claims involving fatal accidents however they are caused.

As a special interest, I deal with cases involving animals, particularly large animals such as horses or livestock. This is a very particular area of law. 

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I spent a lot of time away from school as a child due to orthopaedic surgeries and found myself watching a programme called Crown Court, which inspired me to want to become a criminal barrister.  As I grew older and was able to gain experience, I wanted to help people who were in difficulties and found personal injury law very rewarding in that regard.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I am passionate about getting the best result I can for my clients and helping them through a strange and difficult process.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I am passionate about dressage and a member of British Dressage.

I am also governor of a school, Chair of Governors from September 2013. This is a job which is very rewarding and allows you to give back some of what you have been given, especially as I am a governor of a school I attended.

    Rowan Fitzgerald: Family Statement After Bus Company And Driver Sentenced In Connection With Boy’s Death In Coventry Crash

    “This is a truly tragic case which has had devastating consequences for all of Rowan’s family. Their lives have been turned upside down by the events that happened that day. “Many people will be shocked at not only the driver seemingly thinking it was acceptable to work so many hours a week, but also at the actions of his employer who appeared not to challenge him on this as well as his driving conduct. The company failed appropriately to deal with concerns raised by members of the public as well as other employees and allowed the risks posed by Kailash Chander to continue unabated. “Rowan’s death is a stark reminder of the dangers drivers pose to other road users by driving when tired. “Irwin Mitchell joins Rowan’s family in urging motorists not to ignore the signs of tiredness or deteriorating driving ability and in also reminding employers of their responsibility in protecting their employees and in turn other road users. “Families such as Rowan’s should not have to experience years of grief because of the irresponsible actions of drivers and companies who employ professional drivers. “We will continue to support Rowans family through this incredibly difficult time.”
