Specialities

Background

I handle claims from start to finish. I deal with a range of tasks such as:

  • Taking initial instructions from the prospective claimant
  • Arranging the medical appointments together with any treatment required
  • Obtaining any further reports should these be requested
  • Collating supporting documentation in relation to the claimant’s special damages
  • Valuing the claim in relation to what it is worth
  • Advising the claimant as to the potential settlement that could be obtained
  • Negotiating settlement with the third party insurers

I also advise the claimant throughout the litigation process, negotiate with defendant solicitors, up to and including the final disposal hearing or trial, and instructing counsel to attend any final hearing/trial.

I am familiar and confident in working in accordance with the civil procedure rules.

When the Ministry of Justice portal process launched back in April 2010 I moved into the new portal team to develop a system which worked well on a day to day basis in order to move claims quickly.

I played a key role in setting up and fine tuning the procedures to ensure that claims could be dealt with effectively, efficiently and profitably within the new rules.

I have dealt with claims from initial instruction to final hearing. At any one time I can have in excess of 300 cases. I have also become adept at seizing opportunities to remove claims legitimately from the portal.

Motivation

What aspects of your job do you enjoy the most?
I thoroughly enjoy all areas of my job.
Why did you choose a career in the legal sector?
I did not initially choose the legal sector as a career, but by happy accident I fell into it and grew into the position.
