Examples of the types of case settled by Sally are: £5.4m part lump sum and part annual payments for a brain injured cyclist.

She has successfully obtained million pound plus settlements for clients who have suffered amputation, severe orthopaedic trauma and spinal cord injuries. She obtains interim payments to prevent her clients suffering financial hardship, also to fund rehabilitation, cover the cost of care and has secured funds to enable her clients to buy and adapt homes suited to their needs.  She is hugely committed to her clients and their families and passionate about the work she does.
