She has worked in the Industrial Disease department for 15 years and has particular experience in dealing with Noise-Induced Hearing Loss, Asbestos-related Illness 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.
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.
