Hodge Jones & Allen Solicitors

Work Department

Personal injury.

Position

Anne specialises in catastrophic injuries arising from the whole range of accidents such as road traffic accidents, employers and occupiers liability. She has experience of dealing with fatal accident cases, serious burns cases and has particular interest in amputee cases and acquired brain injury cases. She puts the client at the heart of everything she does and her primary focus is early rehabilitation for those who have suffered catastrophic injuries. Anne has handled many catastrophic injury cases, of note a double amputee case where damages were awarded at £2.75m. This case involved an Article 75 insurer who sought to argue that liability should rest with the insurers of another vehicle which held full insurance. These arguments were defeated by a no nonsense approach to the case with strong litigation. She has also been involved in a heavily contested case in which her client (a pedestrian) was knocked down (the driver fled the scene and despite elaborate attempts to avoid capture was found and prosecuted by the police) and suffered from an acquired brain injury. He had Post Concussion Syndrome which had a dramatic effect on the client’s daily living. Despite the accident circumstances the insurers fought liability tooth and nail but due to Anne’s tenacity she obtained compensation for her client. She is also Joint Secretary of APIL’s Transport Special Interest Groups and is regularly asked to comment on developments in Transport Law.
