Meet our Neurotrauma Team with Emma Redhead
What is your role at Sintons and how long have you been with the firm?
I am a Senior Litigator within the Neurotrauma Team at Sintons and have been with the firm coming up 15 years.
Tell us about your career to date…
I began my career with Sintons in 2007. I progressed to working as a Legal Secretary in Claimant Personal Injury Department. I have worked as a Senior Litigator for the last 9 years. I initially worked in the General Personal Injury team on a range of complex cases before being appointed to the Neurotrauma team in 2017.
Can you tell us about your department and the work it does
The Neurotrauma Team acts on behalf of individuals and their families who have sustained life changing brain and/or spinal cord injuries. Our emphasis is on early rehabilitation to give our clients the best chance of recovery. We work as a team alongside various experts and therapists to obtain the best outcome for our clients.
Can you tell us about the work you do
My role involves working alongside colleagues as part of a team progressing cases daily. A typical day can involve taking witness statements, obtaining/reviewing evidence, drafting legal documents, preparing Court bundles, and liaising with clients, experts and therapists.
I also act on behalf of individuals who have been seriously injured because they were a victim of a violent crime.
What have been your personal career highlights to date?
Each successful case that I have been involved in is a highlight. To be able to support clients and their families through the litigation process, ensuring they have received the best possible compensation for their lifetime needs is rewarding.
Sintons enjoys a first-rate reputation regionally and nationally for its work. What is it like to work here?
Sintons is a fantastic place to work. We are a full-service law firm and have a great team of lawyers and support staff with a focus to provide the best outcome possible for our clients.
And finally, tell us about your interests outside work…
Outside of work I like being outdoors and travelling. I love spending time with my 2-year-old son and family. I am a football fan and support Newcastle United.
