As a partner in Boyes Turner’s highly regarded personal injury team, Claire acts for clients with life-changing injuries, such as mild to very severe brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation, severe burns, complex orthopaedic and musculoskeletal injury, chronic pain and PTSD.
Claire has a specialist interest in acquired brain injury where her focus is on using the claims process to facilitate early intervention and timely, targeted rehabilitation. Claire’s experience with head injured clients has given her invaluable insight into the power of rehabilitation to restore mobility and independence, to assist with a supported return to work and participation in family and social activity, giving clients a sense of purpose and self-worth which all help to maximise the client’s recovery after a life-changing injury.
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.
"Huge thanks to you and your team, all of whom have been superb - you are a spitfire!"
Claire enjoys developing and sharing her expertise by giving talks to multi-disciplinary neuro-rehabilitation teams. She is on the editorial board for B21 magazine, a new brain and spinal injury related publication.
A keen charity supporter and fundraiser she has used her love of running and walking to fundraise for The Children's Trust, Tadworth. She has run events for Headway SW London for whom she was a trustee for six years. She is a trustee for Cycle Smart and supports the charity’s campaign to raise cycling safety awareness and reduce road traffic accidents.
Claire is a member of the Law Society's Personal Injury Panel, APIL (Brain Injury Specialist Interest Group), Headway and ABIL (Acquired Brain Injury across London). She also has Senior Litigator accreditation from APIL.
In her spare time, you’ll find Claire enjoying family time with her husband and children, eating out, going to the theatre and live concerts. Claire keeps active by skiing, walking and running.
Thank you again for everything, I am so happy that I can finally look towards the future and start drawing a line under the accident and putting it in the past where it belongs...I don't think I've felt this happy in ages, it's like a massive weight has been lifted from my shoulders just knowing that it's all done.
