  • Personal Injury

    Urd accepts instructions in all areas of personal injury.

    She appears in court (both remotely and in person) on a daily basis and has experience with conducting trials on both liability and quantum ranging from RTA and credit hire matters through to public liability claims.

    She regularly represents both Claimants and Defendants in directions hearings, dispute resolution hearings, infant settlement approvals, interim applications, MOJ Stage 3 cases and dismissals.

    Urd also advises on liability and quantum in a variety of personal injury matters, and drafts pleadings both for Claimants and Defendants.

    From her time at Clyde & Co, Urd brings with her excellent research skills which she frequently employs when preparing written submissions. Recently, she successfully defended a public liability claim, where one of the Defendant’s trees had fallen onto the Claimant’s car.

    She undertook a detailed review of relevant tree damage liability cases, which was relied on by the judge when dismissing the Claimant’s claim, without the need for any witness evidence in the traditional sense.

  • Clinical Negligence

    During pupillage, Urd has advised on liability and quantum in a range of clinical negligence matters, and she accepts instructions both on behalf of Claimants and Defendants.

    Urd is very thorough and has an eye for detail, which makes her particularly good at reviewing medical reports and records. She has previously assisted with reviewing and summarising medical evidence on a claim pleaded at several million pounds.
