Elizabeth, a solicitor and partner, qualified with Scaiff LLP in 2002, and now works within the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence department.

Elizabeth is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers (ACAL). In 2016 Elizabeth’s expertise in the field of personal injury was recognised with an accreditation from The Law Society.

Recent Personal injury cases have included acting on behalf of a cyclist, a young, active, working mum, who was seriously injured and suffered lower limb amputation following a road traffic accident. Elizabeth worked with a variety of medical experts to ensure that the final compensation package included financial support for ongoing care, accommodation and prosthetic needs. In another case a hard-working landlord had to set aside a great deal of time for remedial dental work only to discover that the dentist had been negligent causing further expense, pain and inconvenience. Full compensation was recovered including the costs of the additional extensive dental work.

Elizabeth also recently settled a Clinical Negligence case out of Court on the basis that the Defendant Hospital Trust accepted it had failed to carry out surgery to an acceptable standard and failed to diagnose a medical condition thereafter. The settlement package included compensation for loss of income, physical injury and psychiatric injury caused by the negligence.

Having become a member of ACAL Elizabeth is passionate about representing victims of childhood sexual abuse and welcomes introductions from individuals and local support centres. Elizabeth works closely with specialist Counsel and local support centres to ensure her legal skills and her awareness of the realities of abuse are current.

Beyond the office Elizabeth enjoys spending time with her young family, horse-riding, Zumba and skiing.
