Charlotte Rees-Knowlden

Charlotte joined Morrisons Solicitors LLP in 2019 and is a Partner within our Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence department. She has over 20 years of experience in advising clients on Personal Injury and medical negligence claims, and in particular,  in accessing rehabilitation for those who have suffered a major trauma  / life changing injury. Charlotte acts solely for Claimants and is a very experienced and robust advocate with extensive litigation experience relating to complex liability and injury issues in both personal injury and clinical negligence cases.

The Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence team as a whole advises on a full range of legal matters concerning all levels of injury sustained from road traffic collision to mis-diagnosis medical cases. Every level of injury claim will be considered if anyone requires assistance.

Charlotte’s main practice is advising Claimant’s who have sustained life changing injuries of maximum severity such as neuro-trauma, brain injuries,  spinal cord injuries (including Cauda Equina Syndrome), serious Musculo-skeletal injuries, amputation, de-gloving injury and severe dental and facial injuries.

She is very passionate about the implementation of early rehabilitation and has a thorough working, and applied knowledge of The Rehabilitation Code, which she uses to full advantage for her clients. Within this she recognises that recovery and rehabilitation is often the most important issue for anyone who has suffered a major trauma, and that each case is unique and that access to prompt and intensive rehabilitation is in the best interest of the injured party.  Charlotte is also experienced in terms of adapted accommodation and equipment issues, particularly for those with brain injuries, paraplegia, tetraplegia and amputations. An important part of this process can be to secure private funding (interim payments) which Charlotte achieves by pursuing Defendant insurers at the earliest opportunity. These payments can enable the provision of care and therapy regimes and where relevant, appropriate further surgery, equipment and even housing.

Charlotte understands that embarking upon a case involving injury can seem complicated,  lengthy and perhaps even intimidating, and as such, that it is important to have someone who completely understands the need of each client, their injuries and their needs moving forward.

Clients are frequently signposted to Charlotte for her approachable and specialist approach. She is happy to take over cases from other firms of solicitors if a client has been unhappy with their previous legal representation.

The aspects of her work that Charlotte particularly enjoys are the interactions with her clients and their families, the difference that a damages awarded can make to someone who has sustained life changing injuries and also the ability to advocate firmly on their behalf for the very best outcome.
