Meet Claire Roantree, partner in the personal injury team. Learn more about what motivates her to do the job she does.

Claire works closely with the defendant insurers, using the Rehabilitation Code and securing interim payments to provide her injured clients with the treatment, care, facilities and support that they need to get their rehabilitation underway straight away, without losing valuable recovery time whilst waiting for final settlement at the conclusion of the claim. Working with experts in a variety of medical and therapeutic disciplines, professional case managers and carers, the client’s immediate needs are prioritised – recovery and rehabilitation – whilst the claim is quantified to make maximum provision for their future needs for ongoing care, support and financial security.

Claire is a co-founder and director of the Major Trauma Group, a collaboration of leading law firms and clinicians who have pooled their knowledge and expertise to assist major trauma victims and their families through provision of a wide range of legal advice and access to the very best rehabilitation services to assist major trauma clients to achieve the best outcome on their rehabilitation and recovery journey, as well as ensuring their financial security in the future.

Claire enjoys developing and sharing her expertise by organising training events and giving talks to multi-disciplinary neuro-rehabilitation teams and local trauma network teams about the importance of rehabilitation in the litigation process. A keen charity supporter and fundraiser she has used her love of running and walking to fundraise for The Children's Trust, Headway SW London for whom she was a trustee for six years and the Child Brain Injury Trust. She is a trustee for Cycle Smart Foundation and supports the charity’s campaign to raise cycling safety awareness and reduce road traffic accidents, particularly amongst children.

Claire is a member of the Law Society's Personal Injury Panel, APIL (Brain Injury Specialist Interest Group), and Headway. She  is an APIL accredited Senior Litigator and Brain Injury Specialist.

Claire’s accreditations

"Thank you"
Thank you so much for all your hard work, support a passion that you have given us over the past 6 years. We really appreciate everything you have done. Thank you for believing in us an fighting to the end. 
"Extremely grateful for her professionalism and attention to detail. "
Through my dealings with Claire as my representative in a personal injury claim, I have been extremely grateful for her professionalism and attention to detail. I believe going above and beyond to help accommodate my needs and explain everything in a way that I could understand. Working around timing for video calls and zoom meetings with myself and my mum, often on weekends and evenings. We always knew she was just a phone call away to answer any questions we had and if she didn’t have the answer then it would be found out for us. Once the claim was settled, she has still offered her support and provided contacts to do with my injury fund and further surgery I need. 
"Thank you so much for all you have done..."
Thank you so much for all you have done for C and the family. I know that you have absolutely given it everything you’ve got and your devotion and commitment to the case has been spectacular.
"Personal Injury Claim"
Claire is exceptionally knowledgeable in the personal injury legal domain, especially in the specific area of my injury. From our very first conversation, she was clear in explaining the potential different routes that the process could take and provided me with expectations of what I could expect along the journey. She ensured that all bases were covered, organising meetings, discussions and necessary specialist appointments, in order to bring together the case and take it forward. Claire was then able to use her extensive pool of contacts, to appoint an "area leading" barrister, to represent me. Overall, I was very pleased with appointing Claire and Boyes Turner to act as my solicitor for the legal claim that I pursued. Thank you for all of your support.
