Rose is a personal injury lawyer in Shoosmiths with over 28 years experience acting for individuals who have sustained serious injuries that have had a significant impact on their quality of life and a lasting impact on their families.
Specialisng in catastrophic brain and spinal cord injuries as a result of road traffic accidents and accidents at work, Rose's role is multifaceted and includes supporting clients in the early stages of their injury, making sure that they get the right rehabilitation to maximise their recovery and source the right expert who can recommend the appropriate aids and equipment to improve their quality of life. An important aspect is to provide the moral and psychological support during a client's transition to a new life, sometimes with disabilities, that they need to come to terms with so that they can look forward to a new life, purpose and future.
The majority of Rose's work comes from referrals from existing clients or professionals who she has worked with in the past. She works hard to build relationships and trust with her clients, their families and the rehab team and take pride in being available to my clients to support them through the different milestones of recovery and independence, and then through the litigation process.
Rose has a reputation with insurers as a serious, no-nonsense lawyer who will engage in dialogue at an early stage to make sure that they understand her client’s injuries so that the right support and rehabilitation is there to meet their needs.
Due to their brain injuries, many clients may lack capacity under the Mental Health Act 2005, and/or they are vulnerable individuals who need the protection of the court. Rose works very closely with Shoosmiths' court of protection team to make sure that her clients have the right professional support.
Rose's objectives include:
- To actively manage her cases and make sure that her client is supported through the litigation process.
- To arrange for the appropriate medical intervention.
- To introduce rehabilitation that maximizes recovery as early as possible.
- To source the appropriate aids and equipment, through interim payments.
- To do what is required to maximise her client's quality of life and independence.
