Stephanie Atkinson

Experience

  • I am a partner in the large loss team and I joined BLM in 2010.
  • I handle both liability and quantum catastrophic injury work dealing with a range of acquired brain injury, spinal injury, amputee, fatality and cerebral palsy claims in a range of RTA, employers’ liability, public liability and clinical negligence scenarios.
  • I have a special interest in complex medical causation issues from premature birth following a mother's involvement in an RTA whilst pregnant.
  • My current caseload includes a variety of cases covering fatalities, severe traumatic brain injury, amputation, paraplegia and cerebral palsy causation claims.
  • I was involved in a recent settlement of a potentially high value cerebral palsy claim for £100,000 inclusive of costs given tough stance taken on causation of periventricular leukomalacia involving the evidence of leading neonatal experts.
  • I am a member of BLM’s subtle brain injury subject matter group.
  • I also provide training both in-house and to customers on various topics, most recently covering an overview of quantum.
