Personal Injury: Mainly Claimant - Newcastle and surrounds
"Fran is a very experienced solicitor. She has a good commercial approach to cases and is a good litigator."

A partner in the Newcastle office, I specialise in helping people who have sustained serious and life changing injuries, particularly assisting individuals who have suffered brain and spinal cord injuries and multiple orthopaedic injuries in claiming compensation following injury.
I have a particular interest in complex liability issues arising out of accidents in the workplace, and road traffic collisions particularly involving pedestrians, and have dealt with a number of claims which other solicitors have considered too difficult to pursue.
I have obtained many substantial interim payments to fund rehabilitation packages, the purchase of accommodation and care to improve my clients’ quality of life and to maximise their recovery.
