Katie has over 30 years' experience helping people to claim compensation after serious and catastrophic injuries. She joined CFG in 2021 as a partner and specialises in cases involving brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, complex orthoapedic claims and amputations.
Katie has supported many people and their families after severe traumatic brain injury, including those who have lost the ability to make decision on their own because of their injuries. Katie also has vast experience helping both adult and children to claim compensation.
Having worked supporting people after life-changing injuries for her whole career, Katie always starts working with the defendant insurers straightaway to try and get early interim payments (payments made throughout a case before it's settled). These payments are often used to help with any financial concerns people may have as a result of not being able to work because of their injuries, as well as to pay for specialist care and rehabilitation to help someone's recovery.
