Personal injury - slip and trip claims, noise induced hearing loss
Chartered legal executive
Annelise joined Seth Lovis & Co in 2011 having resumed her legal career after taking time out to have a family.
Specialising in personal injury law, Annelise has a broad caseload of employer's liability and public liability cases. She also acts for clients in noise-induced deafness cases and enjoys the challenges this work brings.
Annelise has experience in acting for both claimants and defendants in public and employer’s liability claims. But, more recently, her particular focus has been on slip and trip cases, and she has diversified into hearing loss claims which comprise a large proportion of her case load.
Prior to joining Seth Lovis & Co Annelise had been a legal assistant at Beachcroft Wansbroughs for five years, acting for defendant insurer clients.
Using her very personable style, Annelise strives to be approachable and encourages a relaxed relationship with her clients. She is always pragmatic and realistic with her advice and takes a cautious approach to litigation.
Annelise says, "Litigation can be frightening and confusing for a client, especially with the amount of legal jargon that is used. I think it is imperative, as a lawyer, to guide and explain to your clients in plain terms the legal process every step of the way. This forges a good alliance between lawyer and client, which can result in a much smoother and less fraught litigation journey."
Annelise settled a claim for a young man whose back was injured when he slipped on black ice in a petrol station. The frozen water had emanated from a leaky water dispenser. The injury put an end to her client's career in the TA and Alice was able to recover a good settlement for him which incorporated an amount for income he would have earned had he been able to join the TA.
"I would like to say that I have found her extremely efficient, understanding, persistent and very motivated in the way she dealt with and completed the case that lead to me getting a financial settlement that was a lot more than we ever predicted." M
"Thank you very much for all your help with this claim. We are very grateful to you for seeing us through it." A
