By working closely with clinicians and rehabilitation providers, Claire's aim is to help clients to rebuild their lives and restore their independence,  to have a supported return to work where possible and participate in family and social activity, giving clients a sense of purpose and self-worth which all help to optimise recovery after a life-changing injury.

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 was involved in the development of the Major Trauma Group, a not for profit charity which launched in November 2020. The Major Trauma Group is made up of leading law firms who, together with clinicians, have pooled their knowledge and experience 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 give clients the best chance of recovery.

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.
