She has worked in the Industrial Disease department for 15 years and has particular experience in dealing with work related Hearing Loss, Asbestos Illnesses and Vibration White Finger.
Joanne was recently involved with a complex and highly defended Noise-induced Hearing Loss case which proceeded to a Trial lasting 2 days. The claim was successful and the Judge’s award of compensation was significant because our client had beaten his own well pitched offer to settle the claim made almost 3 years prior.
As a result, he was entitled to enhanced compensation and interest, meaning his eventual award exceeded £12,000. See Hearing Loss Case Study.
Interests Outside of Work
Joanne is very family orientated, as her two adult sons live at home, which makes for a busy household. She also enjoys travel and experiencing new places. Joanne has a keen interest in education, disability and equality rights for children.
