Nikki Sharpe - Accident compensation solicitor

Senior accident compensation solicitor - Sheffield

Nikki, based in our Sheffield office, qualified several years ago as a solicitor. Employed in an administrative position over 25 years ago, Nikki was encouraged to develop her career, supported by the firm, and is now proud to use her hard-earned expertise to help provide justice for working people like herself.

Nikki has developed a sound knowledge of all types of accident compensation claims during her career, particularly a special interest and in-depth knowledge of accidents at work. Her experience has covered all types of personal injuries received in work accidents, including manual handing injuries, slips, trips and falls, falls from a height, defective machinery accidents, and many many more.

Her successfully concluded compensation claims have also included very many for clients who have developed industrial diseases through the neglect of their employer. Either through her client’s exposure to harmful substances, or through the inappropriate use of tools and equipment, such as the development of occupational asthma, or vibration white finger.

However, Nikki is also highly skilled in winning road accident claims, including those that have involved pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists and passengers, as well of course as drivers injured through the negligence of other road users.

Nikki has a highly developed sense of social justice, equality and diversity, and will strive to use this along with her proven skills in advocacy and negotiation, to ensure that you and your family are treated with fairness and receive the just compensation to which you are entitled.

Aware of the difficulties some of her peers from ethnic backgrounds experience, Nikki has thrown her knowledge and enthusiasm behind many local and national organisations to try to help others realise their own potential, particularly within the legal profession.

Nikki is actively involved in several organisations such as The Black Solicitors Network and several Universities to ensure that the door to the legal profession is open to all. She has also attended local schools and conferences to talk to young people about the legal profession.

Successful accident compensation claims

Here are just a few examples of accident compensation claims that Nikki has won.

Road accident compensation claim - Cycle accident

Dr Glyn Powell, from Yorkshire, was knocked off his bicycle by a road sweeper as he was on his way home from work, a route he had used for many years. Struck from behind, Dr Powell then suffered a stroke at the scene of the cycling accident, only regaining consciousness when he was in hospital.

Dr Powell received a serious head injury in this bike accident, as well as severe bruising to the back of his body. Although liability was initially admitted by the defendant, Nikki was forced to issue court proceedings. Through determined negotiation however, before the date of the trial, Nikki was able to secure £200,000 in road accident compensation for his serious injuries. This included a sum in compensation for the fact that her client’s career had been cut short by several years.

Road accident compensation claim – passenger in car which crashed

Nikki won £13,000 in road accident compensation for this client, despite his being offered just £5,000 by the insurance company shortly after the accident. He had been a passenger in a car when the driver of that vehicle lost control, and the car flipped over after hitting an embankment. Nikki’s client suffered injuries to his head and hand and had to have surgery to carry out a partial amputation of two of his fingers.

Nikki offered her client accident claim advice on bringing a road accident compensation claim against the driver, who had been speeding and lost control of the vehicle.

Nikki felt that the defendant’s insurance company had approached her client whilst he was still in shock, with the aim of obtaining an early, low settlement. She recognised the potential impact that her client’s injuries would have on his life and fought to secure substantially more accident compensation for his injuries.
