Career Highlights:

  • Successfully representing a client involved in a road traffic accident in which the Defendant sought to deny causation of the client’s injuries. The claim proceeded to trial, and settlement was achieved in the lunchtime recess;
  • Successfully representing a client for an Accident at Work in which it was reported that the Claimant would suffer a permanent disadvantage on the open job market as a result of her injuries. Settlement of the claim included a figure to compensate for that disadvantage;
  • Successfully representing a client for a Public Liability claim in which he fell through rotten floorboards. The Defendant sought to argue that they could not have foreseen such an accident. Erin was able to successfully argue that the Defendant ought to have been aware of the condition of the floorboards and that it was foreseeable that someone may come to harm if they were walked on. Settlement was reached.
