Career Highlights:

  • Successfully representing the widow of a former client, for whom a provisional damages claim had previously be made, in obtaining compensation under the terms of the provisional damages order when the former client sadly passed away from an asbestos related illness.
  • Successfully obtaining compensation for a client following serious road traffic accident in which they suffered traumatic injuries that affected a potential professional sporting career and where private treatment was obtained in order to help treat those injuries.
  • Successfully obtaining a significant level of compensation in a claim where liability was contented throughout and where the compensation obtained included the costs of future private surgery as there was a significant risk that the client would require specialist surgery in the future. The compensation also accounted for the risk that the effects of the injury would affect the client’s career prospects in the future.

Michelle is experienced in dealing with these agreements and with clients who have legal expenses insurance.
