Associate Solicitor, Serious Injury Claims
“In June 2018, I suffered a severe injury from a fall in the community, for which I was not at fault. I was supported by Charlotte Rankin of Simpson Millar in bringing the claim.
Charlotte worked very hard to ensure that my claim was dealt with. However, my claim was resisted by the Co-op and past mental health issues were used against me as a reason for the claim being challenged and a reduced sum being awarded to me. I was often upset over the course of the two years it took for the claim to be resolved, particularly as focus was given to my mental issues.
Charlotte was a strong advocate in this regard; caring and considerate throughout and very supportive of me. She never once saw my mental health issues as a barrier or as a reason for my claim to be disregarded and was a very calming presence at a time of great stress.
Too often, mental health issues prevent people from moving forward with their lives. Charlotte proved to me that with the right support, mental health can be maintained and viewed in a positive light.”Jacqueline Wilde
Charlotte also deals with cases involving Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome and claimants who have suffered Head Injury and Psychiatric injuries.
