Caroline developed and is head of the eight-strong birth and child brain injury department at Bolt Burdon Kemp, where she has been a partner since 2006.
Caroline specialises in cases involving child brain injury and has achieved strong results in a number of high value complex matters. She feels privileged to act exclusively for children who have sustained brain injury due to substandard medical treatment during pregnancy, labour, birth and the early years, or as a result of a traumatic accident including road traffic accidents. Caroline relishes a challenge and has won a number of cases rejected by other firms on the grounds that they had poor prospects of success.
Caroline champions a pro-active and practical approach. Her priority is to ensure her clients receive rehabilitation at the earliest possible opportunity to maximise their chances of achieving the optimum outcome. She works closely with her clients’ families, schools and healthcare professionals to ensure their complex needs are well met so that they can flourish and thrive post-injury. Caroline is an IPSEA qualified SEN (Special Educational Needs) advisor. Caroline has been widely praised for her exceptional client care and is the firm’s client care partner
Caroline is regularly invited to comment in the national press on healthcare issues.
