Monika has been working in this field for over 12 years and during that time she has developed an extensive network of Occupational Therapists, Barristers and Medical Experts. Monika is determined to achieve the best outcome for her clients and to support them during the most difficult times of their lives.

She has been responsible for securing compensation for many hundreds of clients over the years including:

  • Successful outcomes in many complicated cases including those involving pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.
  • Cases involving fractures arising from a range of various accidents.
  • Serious burns resulting from faulty products.
  • Cases involving serious psychiatric injuries, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Case studies:


  • Securing £18,000 for a lady following a fall from a stairlift. As a result, she sustained a fracture to her zygoma, soft tissue injuries and bruising to her head.


  • Securing compensation of several thousand pounds for a university researcher following repetitive strain injury.


  • Securing compensation in many cases where liability has been denied and the position on liability has been complicated.


  • Securing compensation for multiple claimants who have slipped or tripped in supermarkets.


  • Securing compensation for many pedestrians who have been struck by vehicles, including obtaining an award of £40,000 for a pedestrian who was hit by a van while crossing the road. He sustained a fracture to his wrist and several soft tissue injuries.


  • Securing compensation for many vulnerable claimants who suffer with psychiatric conditions. She secured £30,000 for a man who suffered from PTSD as a result of part of the building collapsing during demolition and killing and injuring his co-workers.


  • Securing compensation for scarring and burns sustained as a result of an accident including over £50,000 for a woman who sustained multiple burns due to an exploding slow cooker.


  • Successfully challenging the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) on their decisions not to make an award to various Claimants, especially in pedestrian and cyclist cases. In one of the cases, the MIB refused to make an award to a cyclist who failed to put his hand out to signal that he was turning on a roundabout. Subsequently, he was hit by a passing vehicle that was overtaking him and sustained a fractured leg. On appeal, it was decided that liability would be 70/30 in favour of the Claimant.


  • Securing compensation in maritime cases, including issuing proceedings in the Admiralty Court. An elderly lady who slipped on the deck of a ship while on a cruise sustained a number of soft tissue injuries. Liability was denied and proceedings were subsequently issued. The case settled outside of Court for £5,000.


  • Successfully challenging the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) in the Tribunal when they refused to make an award including securing £25,000 for a child who lost his mother in a house fire.

Outside of work Monika enjoys cooking, hiking and taking care of her pet lizards.
