Personal Injury Serious Injury Fatal Accidents Severe Burn Claims Amputation Claims

Expertise

Leanne has been a qualified solicitor since 2005 and is a team supervisor. She leads a broad-range of serious and high-value injury cases including brain injuries, spinal injuries, pain disorders and amputation claims.

These are cases which often require her to pursue long-term rehabilitation packages on behalf of clients who have suffered life-changing injuries. Leanne also has experience of supporting families who lose loved ones have been involved in fatal accidents.

I support many people whose lives have been forever changed by serious injury, and in situations like this I know it is crucial to develop a good relationship with my clients, and to ensure they trust in me to do my very best for them in terms of compensating them for their loss. I pride myself on making sure that my clients feel supported throughout the claims process. My experience in this work has taught me that you need to be exceptionally organised and have fine attention to detail in cases to provide the best possible support and achieve the best result.  As I head up a team of specialists within the department I also providing advice and supervision on other cases at the firm.

Significant cases

I was particularly proud to secure £320,000 compensation for a man who suffered a serious injury at work but then faced accusations from the business involved of making up the claim. Our client fell and suffered a ‘massive rotator cuff tear’ of tendons and ligaments in his shoulder, causing a long-term injury which prevented him from continuing his job. It was an appalling approach from the defendants given it was an accident which should have been avoided. This case went to court and the found in our favour. A great example of standing up for people against organisations.

I was also extremely proud to secure a substantial compensation package for a client who suffered life-changing injuries and was left unable to work when his left leg was trapped between two forklift trucks as a result of his employers’ negligence. The successful claim enabled my client to change his accommodation to single storey, which suited his new needs.

A particularly sad case I was instructed on was acting on behalf of a woman whose husband was killed in a car crash not long after they had married. He was the provider for his wife, who was a full-time mother, and their two children. A £262,000 damages settlement was secured. In such cases loved ones can of course never be replaced, but the settlement will be massively helpful for this families future by covering the long-term financial support lost.
