Deepti is passionate about raising awareness about brain injuries and she fights hard to win cases on behalf of her clients.
Deepti takes on a range of brain injury cases including claims relating to brain tumours, encephalitis and strokes. She has a particular interest in investigating claims involving delayed diagnosis of brain tumours and non-cancerous masses and keeps up to date with medical advancements and further research. She has been successful in winning several cases, including multi-million pound claims, and was recently listed as a ‘Key Lawyer’ in the Legal 500.
Deepti also has a broad range of experience in road traffic accidents, inquests, accidents on water, accidents at work and claims relating to public liability.
Deepti’s clients often require significant care and rehabilitation on account of their injuries, and she supports her clients with compassion through every stage of litigation including investigating the claim, issuing court proceedings, representing clients at court hearings and working to reach a successful conclusion. Deepti recognises the importance of seeking rehabilitation early and is committed to securing early admissions of liability from Defendants.
Deepti works closely with Laura Barlow on a range of other challenging brain injury cases, including brain injuries sustained in road traffic accidents and through clinical negligence. Deepti has gained experience in working on several multi-million pound claims with colleagues and is capable of pushing complex cases through to a conclusion.
Deepti’s commitment to raising awareness of brain injury extends to outside the workplace. She is a regular volunteer with Headway Milton Keynes and runs a monthly creative writing group for members. Headway is a brain charity sponsored by Bolt Burdon Kemp which provides support for individuals and families who have suffered a brain injury. Deepti enjoys meeting new people and being able to use her knowledge of brain injury to help those who have been adversely affected, bringing together two of her passions.
Having completed her Law degree at Keele University in 2012, Deepti went on to study for her LPC at the University of Law in Birmingham. She also volunteered for Victim Support for many years providing support to vulnerable witnesses and victims of crime whilst they went through the legal process. Upon completion of her legal education, Deepti gained experience working as a paralegal and later a trainee solicitor for a well-known London law firm where she investigated personal injury claims for individuals who had sustained catastrophic injuries, including brain injury.
