Helping to secure someone’s future following a life changing injury is the most fulfilling aspect of my role.
Get to know Sian
I joined Slater and Gordon upon qualifying as a solicitor in 2013.
I specialise in serious and catastrophic personal injury matters and have over 10 years’ experience dealing with cases involving severe acquired brain injuries, polytrauma, serious orthopaedic injury and limb loss. I also have considerable experience working on cases involving fatal injuries.
My primary area of expertise is road traffic collisions, although I also have experience of accidents in the workplace and in public places.
I strive to provide excellent client care and am acutely aware of the devastating effects that a life changing injury can have. I aim to secure comprehensive rehabilitation packages and interim payments at the earliest opportunity and ensure that clients are fully supported through the legal process and beyond.
I've successfully represented a number of clients to secure considerable awards of compensation.
Most notably during my career, I secured seven figure settlements for two clients who had suffered below knee amputations. One was due to a head on road traffic collision and the other was an accident at work involving a fall from scaffolding, which was heavily disputed.
I secured a seven figure settlement for a client who suffered a severe traumatic brain injury. He was a pedestrian in a road traffic collision and I ensured early access to rehabilitation as well as accommodation and future care and assistance to ensure he's continuously supported throughout his life.
I also acted in a matter involving a young pedestrian involved in a road traffic collision who suffered a catastrophic brain injury which involved cross-jurisdictional issues and complex areas of law. A settlement award of £13m was secured.
I'm an approved solicitor for the Brain Injury Group and Headway Liverpool.
The extra mile
I often get involved in providing training to charities, case managers and other professionals involved in the legal process to raise awareness of various issues.
