I am a Paralegal in the Insurance and Regulatory Team. I deal with all aspects of motor claims, including personal injury, credit hire and vehicle damage claims. I have instructed on behalf of domestic insurers, companies and individuals. I have also instructed on public and employer’s liability matters.
My work predominantly involves defending motor claims on behalf of self-insuring companies, but does also include instructions from domestic insurers. I also spend time providing assistance to other members of the team.
I have a law degree from the University of Winchester.
Areas of Expertise
Representing a self-insuring company in relation to a motor claim involving credit hire and vehicle repairs. Liability was not in dispute between the parties but the sum being claimed for hire – exceeding £17,000 – was heavily disputed. A detailed review of the claimant’s finances led to questions surrounding their need to hire the type of vehicle hired and whether full disclosure had been provided. Part 18 questions were asked of the claimant. A settlement was agreed in the sum of £8,000 for credit hire by way of acceptance of the defendant’s offer.
Away from the office
I am a keen fisherman and enjoy playing golf.
