She finds great reward in being able to use her knowledge and skills to achieve a suitable financial settlement to redress the awful situations that many have found themselves in.

Notable Settled Cases

LM

A young lady with complex health needs who relies on a carer for her personal care. On the day in question, the carer failed to assist her transfer in the bathroom, and she fell - sustaining a fracture to her lower leg/ankle. Whilst liability was not accepted, the Defendants made a Part 36 offer. This was far too low, and we negotiated a higher sum in line with Counsel’s advice.

TM vs EL

The client was sacked from his job and rendered homeless, ultimately sofa surfing. His mental health spiralled and added to his pain and mobility issues, leaving him feeling desperate. Andrea achieved an admission of liability for him, and a settlement which was enough to enable him to buy his own static caravan.

PR

An 80-year-old lady was dropped by ambulance men when they were transferring her home from hospital. She sustained a fracture to her lower leg. We achieved an admission of liability and a fair settlement for her.
