Part of the Brain Injury Team
Caroline joined the child brain injury department in September 2018 and assists head of department Caroline Klage and other senior members of the team on a wide range of complex multi-track cases.
After qualifying as a solicitor in September 2015, Caroline practiced family law before moving in to the field of clinical negligence and personal injury work and developing a specialist interest in child brain injury work. She is committed to a holistic approach to cases and securing early access to the rehabilitation and support required for both the injured child and their families.
Caroline obtained a degree in Biology from Bristol University and is committed to ensuring a full understanding of the technical and complicated medical issues involved in child brain injury cases to secure the best outcome for her clients.
She has experience working on high value child brain injury cases including-cross jurisdictional matters and specialist injury areas such as complex birth injuries and carbon monoxide poisoning.
Whilst practicing as a family law solicitor, Caroline worked closely with Local Authorities and is experienced in their duties and obligations in respect of special educational needs (SEN) assessments and the provision of Education, Health and Care plans (EHCPs), both of which can play vital roles in ensuring the best educational progress and development for a child after they have sustained a brain injury.
Caroline volunteers at Penniwells, a horse-riding school for adults and children with disabilities – a charity sponsored by Bolt Burdon Kemp – which provides disabled people with the opportunity to ride to benefit their health and well being.
