I specialise in Head and Brain Injury Litigation. I have worked in Personal Injury Litigation for many years and have specialised in Brain Injury claims since 1996. I am a Fellow of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and I act for clients who have suffered injuries of the utmost severity.
Engaging with lawyers can often seem a daunting prospect. It shouldn’t be. At Brethertons we pride ourselves on being approachable and on understanding the needs of those who approach us for help. We strive for unobtrusive professionalism.
I’m passionate about helping our customers to access the compensation they deserve and am proud to have, over the years, secured many multi-million pound settlements. I have assisted with the set up of rehabilitation and care packages and overseen the purchase and adaptation of accommodation for numerous people having, secured substantial interim damages.
It’s very hard for me to single out any particular case of which I am most proud. I have derived enormous pleasure from winning very difficult cases which at the outset my clients were tempted not to pursue and also knowing that I and the rest of my team have made a real difference to a client’s post-accident life.
I was delighted that Chambers & Partners (2015) cited me as being “…a real fighter,” whilst The Legal 500 directory (2015) said that I am, “…one to note.”
I’m a member of Headway (the Brain Injury Association), SIA (Spinal Injuries Association), BABICM (British Association of Brain Injury Case Managers) and the Law Society.
I am the mother of two young children and outside of work I enjoy walks in our local forest and trips away - especially to the seaside.
“I can confirm that it is always an enormous pleasure to work with Katherine. She is an absolutely first class PI solicitor and inspires confidence. When working with her it is always apparent that she is totally on top of the detail of the case, the steps that need to be taken and the legal arguments. In my experience Katherine is also excellent with client care and I have experience of her negotiating directly with the defendant solicitor an extremely good settlement. I can highly recommend every aspect of Katherine’s work that I have seen.”
