- Significant Brain Injury
- Limb Amputation
- Serious Spinal injury
- Pain Disorder

Louisa’s attention to detail is well suited to cases involving:
- Substantial loss of earnings
- Complex care requirements
- Alternative accommodation claims

Louisa’s practice encompasses both advisory and adversarial elements. She is well suited to client-facing work (i.e. conferences and joint settlement meetings) and takes particular care to explain her advice in a clear and straightforward manner to her lay and insurer clients.
In very high value cases, Louisa works well with Leading Counsel and serves as an effective interface between her instructing solicitor and Queen’s Counsel.
Louisa is diligent and prides herself on her ability to respond to her instructions in a timely manner. She is an advocate of paperless working wherever possible.
