I have worked in Serious Injury for more than 10 years and qualified as a Chartered Legal Executive in 2018. I am also an APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) accredited litigator.
I act for clients who have suffered life-changing injuries. These include traumatic brain injury, complex upper and lower limb orthopaedic injuries, psychiatric injuries and spinal injuries in both adults and minors. I also act for families following fatal accidents.
I support clients injured at work, by other road users, drivers involved in multiple vehicle collisions, cyclists and accidents involving electric scooters. I regularly takeover cases for clients from other law firms.
I assist clients from the early stages following serious injury to access interim funds for private rehabilitation to maximise their recovery. I recognise the need for ongoing support for my clients and their close family.
I run my own caseload and assist Keith Barrett, Partner in high-value claims. I have acted for clients at trial in the High Court of Justice.
- Acting for multiple injured clients including a fatality, in a cycling incident abroad involving traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury caused by a speeding driver. Court proceedings were issued and liability was resolved in full in the clients' favour. Interim payments of damages funded treatment and eased some financial burden.
- Takeover case for a client injured in a road traffic collision. Full liability admission secured and multiple interim payments obtained for treatment.
- Acting for the family of a claimant who died in a workplace incident. Proceedings are issued and a Health & Safety Executive prosecution awaited.
- Assisting with several clients injured, including a fatality, when a high speed Rigid Inflatable Boat crashed into a buoy in Southampton. Court proceedings were issued and a criminal trial concluded. Interim funds enabled the claimants to undergo treatment.
What others say…
Thank you for your care and professionalism - would highly recommend!
Keith, Jack and Amy handled my personal accident claim after a serious cycling accident. It was an extremely difficult and distressing time for my family with a 5 day old baby. Keith was extremely empathetic to my situation and together with Jack and Amy they form a formidable team, leaving no stone unturned and always on hand no matter what time of the day or day of the week.. If you haven’t already instructed Keith and his team to act on your behalf and would strongly recommend switching to Fieldfisher now if you want to secure the best outcome for you - I can’t recommend them highly enough!!!
I was recommended Fieldfisher by a solicitor friend of mine and having used the firm I would also highly recommend them. Professional, tailored service. Throughout the process I was confident that Fieldfisher were acting effectively and coordinating with other parties with utmost competence. Communication was prompt, empathetic and efficient. I was very pleased with the result of the process.
My life changed when I was hit by a car on a pedestrian crossing. I found a lawyer on the internet to handle my case. This lawyer did not take care of me. A friend referred me to Fieldfisher. I was very impressed when Keith Barrett came to me, explained everything and supported me. I was happy when he said he would take over my case. Fieldfisher sent me to the appropriate doctors to check all my fractures and give their opinion on my health. I was very happy that someone not only supported me mentally but also helped me physically understand my situation. Thank you to Fieldfisher and Jack Sales who supported me on my way. I recommend Fieldfisher to everyone. They are professional and trustworthy people.
