Biography

Head of Serious Injury, London

I head up the Serious Injury team in London. I specialise in a range of personal injury work including head and spinal cases. I also undertake fatal and amputation cases and have extensive experience with fatal cases. In addition, I undertake cases involving deliberate assaults and child abuse.

I am a Fellow with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and an accredited brain injury specialist. I am also on the Law Society's Personal Injury Panel.

Recent Settlements Include: 

  • Compensation for a driver who suffered a whiplash injury and a dissection of his carotid artery which later resulted in a stroke and significant disability and neurological impairment. This case settled for an amount equivalent to £2.42 million.
  • A young motorcyclist who suffered devastating ankle injuries, eventually leading to an elective below knee amputation. This case settled for in excess of £1 million.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I went into the law to make a difference to people's lives and to be able offer skilled and expert advice to a broad cross section of the community. My work in child abuse claims has often involved helping the most ignored, socially excluded and disadvantaged people in society. My aim in accident cases is to return people to as full a life as possible.  In fatal cases, I work to give financial security to  bereaved families.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I am most happy when we not only get a good settlement of a case but we also manage to do something good in addition like putting in place some effective rehab or getting an apology. I like to use the claims process imaginatively because it is rarely just the money which is important.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I have a fabulous team of over 30 lawyers, we have great resources from our colleagues in our support departments and there is a wealth of knowledge which is shared on specialist cases.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I love to walk. I would say hill walking, but I am from Norfolk and I don't do hills. I like to get away from London and out in the open but most of my spare time is spent looking after my young and very energetic daughter. I also enjoy stand-up comedy, current affairs and politics.

    Teenager Left Brain Injured After Being Hit By Car Speaks Out During Action For Brain Injury Week

    “Through our work we have seen numerous instances when people’s lives have been completely turned upside down as a result of a traumatic brain injury, whether it is survivors themselves, family members or friends. “It can be an incredibly difficult period of anyone’s life, but we also know how access to the right rehabilitation and support can help survivors get the best from life. In Molly’s case, interim funding secured in the court case now means she can have further rehabilitation to help her with my injuries and more therapy so that she can make further progress with her recovery. “We are a proud supporter of the work of Headway and warmly welcome the focus of this year’s Action for Brain Injury Week. It is a vital reminder of how so many survivors – like Molly - are able to overcome incredible obstacles to regain much-needed independence.”

    'Support Networks Must Be Robust,' In Football Abuse Scandal

    “For years there have been abuse cases arising from sports clubs and sports coaches but the scale this has now reached, and related to the professional game, is on another level entirely. The support networks must be robust and the networks already in place will be tested by the number of survivors that need help and advice and support to help them overcome their trauma as much as possible. “Sadly the environment of coaches in a position of power over players who are under extreme pressure to make it in the professional football world seems to have created a black hole of abuse which has seemingly gone unchallenged for far too long. “The bravery of those first footballers to speak out has exposed this problem – now the authorities have to sort this out once and for all – not just for those survivors, but to ensure this cannot happen again.”
