Anne has over 20 years’ experience and has been a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel since 2007.
A highly experienced personal injury practitioner, she concentrates on complex injury cases, dealing with a wide range of matters including accidents at work, road traffic accident cases, and public liability cases. She has a wealth of expertise in cases involving acquired brain injury.
Anne is committed to assisting clients in obtaining early rehabilitation and is an advocate of the Rehabilitation Code, jointly running “A Client’s journey through Rehabilitation” at the Neuroconvention in June 2018 with colleague Riffat Yaqub.
She has secured rehabilitation funding for a 15 year old who was involved in a hit and run accident and sustained an acquired brain injury. This has been essential to provide support to him and his family while he transitions from school to the workplace.
In another case, again a Road Traffic Collison, involving a 15 year old, she has made sure that while liability is being assessed, that the insurers of the driver of the car engage in the Rehabilitation Code. Funding has been agreed for an EHCP which is a must for any child who is injured of school age.
She has dealt with and is dealing with cases involving post concessional syndrome, an often mis understood condition. She is currently dealing with a case arising out of an accident at work (a fall) in which her client suffered a mild traumatic brain injury which led to post-traumatic headaches, post-concussion syndrome, chronic pain and psychological problems.
She has successfully concluded a case where her client sustained a serious head injury and developed Post Concessional Syndrome following a RTC.
The selection of medical experts is key to a successful case which goes hand in hand with rehabilitation and knowing how to liaise with statutory services to give the best all round support to the client and their families.
