Jennifer is a solicitor in the Serious Injury Team and deals with cases of all kinds including:
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work
- Criminal injury claims
- Fatal accidents
- MIB claims where negligent drivers are uninsured or untraced.
Jennifer joined Pannone in 2008 as a trainee solicitor, qualifying into the Serious Injury Team in 2010.
Best career moment:
Obtaining a six figure settlement for a veteran soldier who suffered serious injuries when he was hit by a misfired rocket flare during a routine army training exercise. The blast caused multiple fractures to the claimant’s left dominant hand, requiring five operations to reconstruct. He also suffered psychological damage as a result of the blast, including nightmares and flashbacks.
Unfortunately, movement in his hand could not be restored and the claimant was medically discharged from the army in March 2011. Settlement was reached at a Joint Settlement Meeting on 16th September 2013, including an award of £290,000 for the claimant’s future loss of army earnings and pension.
This was a significant achievement given that the claimant had only served three months in the army when the accident occurred and there is considerable statistical evidence demonstrating a high dropout rate in the armed forces.
Jennifer assisted with the landmark win in the Supreme Court: Woodland v Essex County Council (2013) and a record settlement for loss of earnings for a former Liverpool FC professional footballer: Highdale v Wooding (deceased) + or.
