I am a Solicitor in the Serious Injury team in Southampton. I help people who have suffered life changing injuries in accidents that have happened as a result of negligence. I deal with a variety of accidents, including road traffic accidents, accidents at work and public liability matters.
I have specialised in Employers Liability and Public Liability claims since my qualification as a solicitor in 2013 and I also act for a number of clients who have been injured as a result of a road traffic accident. I have a special interest in clients who have sustained multiple, complex orthopaedic injuries.
I am not sure what initially triggered my interest in law but I know that I wanted to become a solicitor from secondary school onwards, so every step I took was geared towards achieving this goal. My first role after completing the legal Practice Course was as a paralegal at a regional personal injury firm. I went on to complete my training contract at a local authority, but after qualifying I returned to a role in personal injury.
The most rewarding aspect of my role is helping people receive they rehabilitation they need to get them back on their feet. Although it's undoubtedly satisfying to successfully conclude a case, if the accident had not happened my clients would not be in the position of having to pursue a claim – it is rewarding to secure them the settlement they are entitled to.
Getting a negligent party to admit they were fully at fault for an accident is also very rewarding as I am able to reassure my clients that they were not to blame for their injuries.
Away from the office I enjoy doing DIY, watching films and supporting Tottenham Hotspurs. I am a very keen Formula 1 fan and would eventually like to visit every track on the F1 calendar. I also volunteer once a month at Aldershot Snowsports for the Disabled, a local adaptive skiing/snowboarding group.
Through our work we have seen on numerous occasions how sport has been able to help our clients with rehabilitation following serious injury.
“Unfortunately, while there are over 12 million people with disabilities in the UK, only one in six actually takes part in sport regularly.
“Part of this is due to the lack of funding and availability of specialist equipment and, with that in mind, we hope these grants will help support individuals and sports teams so they can realise their true potential.
“I have been volunteering at the club for around 18 months and I have been able to see first hand that Aldershot Snowsports are a real success story in encouraging disabled people to take part in sport, promoting the psychological, social and rehabilitative benefits that physical activity can have. Disability need not be a barrier to sport.”
