A Personal Injury Lawyer with extensive experience of the industry.

Rakhi is a leading Personal Injury Lawyer with in-depth experience in dealing with claims, including road traffic accidents, motorcycle accidents, fatal accidents, chronic pain, public and employer liability claims, all ranging from Fast Track to Multi Track.

Her main area of specialism is motorcycle accidents, which often involve a denial on liability due to the extensive case law that surrounds these types of accidents. She specialises in mild to moderate brain injuries involving neurological rehabilitation, shoulder/clavicle fractures and complex injuries to the knees.

Some examples of Rakhi's cases include:

A motorcyclist who sustained a serious fracture to the clavicle, which later developed into a brachial plexus injury and a minor head injury. Liability was disputed on the basis that the motorcyclist was filtering at the time of the accident. The claim settled for £120,000.

A motorcyclist who sustained a fracture of the metacarpal joints, fracture of the clavicle, soft tissue injuries, depression and a minor head injury. The claim settled for £110,000 which included a claim for future loss of earnings.

A motorcyclist who sustained a fractured elbow, pelvis and femur as a result of the third party failing to give way at a junction. The claim involved re-locating the Claimant to alternative premises due to the nature of his injuries and unsuitability of his existing flat. The claim settled for £75,000.

Accidents at work. The Claimant developed Chronic Pain Syndrome rendering the Claimant partially disabled. Estimated value of the claim £500,000 to 1 million based on future care and loss of earning capacity.

Fatal accident dependency claim brought by a minor. The final settlement was approved by a District Judge in the sum of £80,000.
