Experience

Anna is involved in the ongoing high-profile claims against Alton Towers, and also a claim being brought by a child amputee who fell from a moving coach.

She has previously obtained the largest known reported lump sum award for a single limb amputee in England for one of her clients.

Anna was also the solicitor acting in the widely referenced case of Best v Smyth where the claimant, who was rendered a paraplegic as a result of an accident, was successful in securing a substantial interim payment to enable him to purchase a property.

Anna recently acted for a claimant who claimed for significant loss of earnings after she sustained a serious brain injury and as a result had to give up her ambition to become a consultant within the medical profession.

Expertise

Anna has successfully concluded many complex and high-value cases for clients with severe brain injuries, spinal injuries, amputations and limb loss.

She has acted for clients who have suffered devastating consequences as a result of an accident, including those who have lost valuable career opportunities and whose lives have drastically changed as a result.

Anna understands the impact catastrophic injuries can have on a claimant and their immediate family, and considers the possibility of obtaining an interim payment at the earliest opportunity.

Career

Anna completed her training contract at Henmans in Oxford, qualifying in September 2002. Upon qualification she joined Lyons Davidson as an assistant solicitor as part of their Head and Spinal Injuries team and was promoted to associate solicitor before joining Stewarts in 2008.
