Rebecca has substantial experience dealing with catastrophic injury claims for individuals who sustained serious injuries due to another’s neglicence. One example is the important case of Webley v St George’s Hospital NHS Trust & Anor . The Claimant, Mr Webley, established negligence against the NHS Trust despite considerable difficulties of both technical and legal nature. Mr Webley sustained significant and life changing injuries as a result of the hospital not keeping him safe, despite being detained under the Mental Health Act 1983.
Rebecca often works with vulnerable clients from all walks of life. Her empathy allows her to attend to matters sensitively according to the needs of each individual client, for example she has considerable experience supporting the families after the sudden loss of a loved one whether to help them deal with the inquisitorial process or seek answers from the responsible body.
