KATIE’S CASE EXPERIENCE
Accident at work claim: Katie represented a client who sustained a psychological trauma after being confronted by a patient while alone in her office. The injuries were so severe that she was unable to continue work. The employer disputed the severity of the injuries, her future earning capacity and the need for treatment in the future. Katie secured £325,000 for her client after the case settled before trial.
Accident at work claim: Katie’s client was run over by a fork life truck while at work. He sustained severe crush injuries to his feet as well as psychological trauma. The defendant admitted liability but disputed the extent to which specialist accommodation, care and therapy would be needed in the future. During a joint settlement meeting, Katie secured £700,000 for her client.
Katie’s former client said: “I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for all your work in bringing my litigation to a close. I was shell shocked at the conclusion on the day and the full implications didn’t sink in. I am now beginning to realise that the settlement is going to afford myself and my wife the opportunity to plan for the future and just have some fun.”
Another of Katie’s former clients said: “I was very grateful for your service and would recommend you to anybody that is in the same position as I was. The service I received was excellent and I thank you very much and thank god for people like you.”
