I am a Paralegal in the Personal Injury Team, specialising in handling road traffic accidents, accidents at work and slipping and tripping accidents on behalf of injured Claimants. I also assist more senior team members to progress more complex cases.
I advise clients on all aspects of pursuing a personal injury claim from start to finish. I am happy to travel and visit clients wherever is convenient for them, including their home or office.
I have a Paralegal Diploma in Personal Injury Law and am a Fellow of the Institute of Paralegals.
"Since my first meeting with Katherine Knapman I knew instantly that I was in the right place. After a wasted year of waiting from another law firm, Katherine was extremely prompt and handled my case in a very professional manner and got a brilliant end result for me. Can I say how grateful to her I am , and all at Trethowans." - Client
