Allison Fitchett - Serious injury compensation solicitor

Nottingham serious accident compensation solicitor

Allison is an extremely experienced Nottingham solicitor and during her years of helping injured people secure the accident compensation to which they are entitled, she has specialised in work accident compensation claims and road accident compensation claims.

In recent years however, Allison has specialised in serious accident compensation claims of high profile and high value claims where her clients have suffered serious injuries such as head and brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputations. Sadly, some of Allison's claims involve fatalities and she is representing their family. She understands the sensitivity that is required to work with the family at a very difficult time for them, particularly as such catastrophic cases may take some time to be brought to a conclusion.

Allison’s experience, representing clients across the East Midlands, in bringing work accident compensation claims includes a broad range of injuries, including those sustained as a result of slips, trips or falls at work, or manual handling injuries or injuries caused by falling from height.

In dealing with road accident compensation claims, Allison has represented clients who were pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, or occupants of the vehicle whether they were a passenger or the driver.

This means that she has developed a real depth of understanding of the issues in all these areas, and as a team manager, she enjoys mentoring her team to share the knowledge she has gained.

Allison is also a joint branch representative for Catastrophic and Serious Injury cases, based in our Nottingham office, where she has earned a reputation amongst her peers and clients alike for her commitment to achieving the just compensation for all her clients.

Alison is a member of APIL (The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) where he is recognised as a senior litigator.

Allison is also included in the list of Headway’s approved personal injury solicitors.

Successful accident compensation claims

Here is just a small sample of the successful accident compensation claims which Allison has been involved in

Work accident compensation claim – hit by moving vehicle

Allison was able to secure over £200,000 in accident at work compensation for this seriously injured client. He was working in a site compound when a van, driven by another employee, struck him from behind and drove over his leg.
He suffered several fractures to his leg and sustained a very serious injury. He had to undergo an operation to insert a pin through the bone to correct the damage.

When he was released from hospital, our client was only able to walk with the aid of crutches and for only short distances at a time. Longer journeys required him to use a wheelchair, and he has been advised that his recovery may take some time.

Although dressed with high visibility clothing, hardhat and protective boots, Allison’s client was injured because no designated safe routes for pedestrians had been established. This was subsequently corrected.

Although the defendant admitted liability for her client’s serious injuries, Allison was forced to issue court proceedings. However, she succeeded in negotiating the substantial work accident compensation shortly before the trial date.

Work accident compensation claim - Serious head injury

This client was injured in an accident at work when he was asked to help a colleague work on dismantling a mezzanine floor. No risk assessment was carried out and her client and his colleague were simply left to get on with the job without any advice, instructions or supervision.

As they were lifting the floor, Allison’s client fell through it, hitting his head on girders and the concrete floor some 15 feet below.

He suffered a very serious brain injury and, despite extensive brain surgery, has been left paralysed down one side with serious physical disabilities that will require specialist 24-hour care for the rest of his life.

As he slowly recovered, Allison began the lengthy process of seeking accident compensation for her client as the defendant initially refused to admit liability. Even when they finally accepted liability, their insurers made a derisory offer, which Allison advised her client and his family to reject.

After lengthy negotiations, which are typical in cases of such serious injuries, Allison was able to secure substantially more accident compensation than had originally been offered. Almost £1 million was paid as a lump sum, which allowed her client’s family to buy a bungalow suitable to accommodate him after his release from hospital. The remainder will be paid in an annual sum, which will ensure his care and needs are met for the rest of his life. The total accident compensation amounted to around £3 million.

Road accident compensation claim – Serious head and brain injury

Allison’s client in this road accident compensation claim had been a front seat passenger in a car when the driver had lost control. The car had left the road, struck a tree before coming to rest, with her client trapped inside.

Her client had suffered a fractured skull, brain damage and internal injuries and fractures. He has been left with severe back and spinal injuries. Although he initially tried to return to work on light duties, he was unable to continue, and at the time of his award was still seeking alternative employment.

Allison was forced to issue court proceedings in this serious accident compensation claim. At a joint settlement meeting, Allison successfully negotiated substantial compensation for her client, part of which was in recognition of the loss of future earnings.

Comments from accident compensation clients

Just a few examples of the thanks expressed by grateful clients for whom Allison has successfully fought for accident compensation.
