Senior Litigation Executive
Hazel is a Senior Litigation Executive in our Road Traffic Accidents team, who acts for clients who have sustained serious and life-changing injuries.
Hazel has 18 years’ experience in this area of law and understands the effect that life-changing injuries have on clients.
She enjoys making a difference to their lives by helping them get early access to rehabilitation and treatment, and getting the best possible settlement for her clients.
Hazel believes it is very important that the client receives the right support and that this is focused on each individual and their families.
She thrives on being part of the client’s journey from the accident to achieving a compensation settlement, and believes the process can be both challenging and rewarding.
Hazel has a strong track record of success. For example, she helped a woman who was a pillion passenger on a motorcycle secure £1.5 million in compensation after an accident with a drunk driver led to her needing an above the knee amputation.
In another case, Hazel acted for a medical professional who sustained complex orthopaedic injuries and a brain injury after being knocked off his bike, and helped him get £2.5 million in compensation.
Hazel has also previously worked on and assisted with a parliamentary inquiry and appeared regularly on a local radio “legal eagle” segment for many years.
