I am an Assistant Solicitor in the Personal Injury Team, based at the firm’s Hedge End Office. I have extensive expertise in pursuing all types of Personal Injury claims and Clinical Negligence claims, helping clients get the compensation they’re due.
I help my clients recover the compensation to which they are entitled, and which they require to be successfully rehabilitated and fully recover.
Areas of Expertise
I acted for the parents of a 12 year old boy who sadly died as a direct result of negligent medical advice that his mother received from an out of hours general practitioner when her son fell ill. I represented the family at the Inquest into S’s death, and subsequently negotiated a successful settlement of their damages claim with the relevant Primary Care Trust.
I represented a client who was the very unfortunate victim of a practical joke when his colleague pulled a chair from under him as he went to sit down at work. My client suffered a severe injury to his back which meant that he had been unable to return to the employment he held and had enjoyed at the time of the accident; he had no option but to take alternative employment. With my assistance, the client was successful in recovering the sum of £72,500 from his former employer who was the Defendant to his claim.
