Work Department

Brain injury, spinal injury and catastrophic injury

Position

Partner

Jill Greenfield specialises in high value claims involving brain damage, spinal cord injury, serious orthopaedic injury and fatalities. Her cases are as a result of RTA's, accidents at work, occupier's liability cases and other sometimes unusual cases. She is well used to dealing with complex liability and quantum arguments. "She has few equals in getting results" is one comment from within the industry.

Jill has a particular expertise in Neurotrauma cases and understands clearly the issues and works closely with the family and rehabilitation team to ensure that the injured victim is able to regain their sense of dignity and to retain a sense of purpose in life.

She is currently running the Godstone Farm litigation, for over 30 children who suffer the serious consequences of exposure to E Coli 0157. She has won at trial the highest award for a victim of rape, Amanda Lawson v The Estate of Christopher Dawes and has been recognised as a leading expert in the field of personal injury work for many years. Jill was instrumental in the high profile pro bono campaign for British Victims of Terrorism abroad which led to the introduction of a new scheme being put in place by the UK Government to provide financial support for Britons involved in terrorist atrocities whilst abroad (something that had not previously existed).

Cases come to Jill by way of personal recommendation from other lawyers, medical experts, existing and past clients and generally from knowing of Jill's reputation.

  • Is comparative advertising unfair?

    THE EUROPEAN COURT OF JUSTICE (ECJ) IS IN THE midst of considering questions referred to it by the UK courts in three separate cases that should clarify the law regarding comparative advertising. This type of advertising, particularly when it identifies a competitor or a competitor’s goods or services by referring to a registered trade mark, is of particular concern to trade mark owners as their competitors normally seek to make unfavourable comparisons with their own goods or services, or to take advantage of being associated with the market leader’s brand.
