JOANNE DU PLESSIS

Joanne Du Plessis

I am an experienced personal injury solicitor and have been working in this area of law for over 20 years. I am a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).  I have gained my experience whilst working in the UK as well as abroad. Because I have also worked in the insurance industry, I have a unique insight into their practices when dealing with personal injury claims and this helps me to make sure I use this knowledge strategically to obtain the best outcome for you.

Although I deal with all types of personal injury claims, I have a great deal of experience in helping clients who have had serious, life changing or catastrophic injuries. In Southern Africa I was pleased to have had the opportunity to have worked on one of the highest value tetraplegia cases to have been decided in the South African Courts. Brain injury cases, Cerebral palsy and serious cosmetic disfigurement cases are some of the more challenging matters that I have dealt with.  I have a particular interest in serious accidents sustained in the workplace as well as catastrophic Road Traffic Accidents and Clinical Negligence matters.

When I am not working,  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and exploring the beautiful British countryside.

I’d be really pleased to have the opportunity to help you with your claim for compensation, so call me now on 0800 285 1266 or complete our Online Contact Form and I’ll be in touch shortly.

I started my career in law in 1986 as the area of law had always interested me. I worked hard to progress and became a Chartered Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives in 2006 of which I am extremely proud.

A member of the Association of Personal injury Lawyers (APIL), I have a keen interest in litigation and represent my clients in all areas of personal injury. Of particular interest to me are the areas of Occupational Illness, in particular noise induced hearing loss, vibration white finger/carpal tunnel syndrome, and public liability cases. I am also very interested in cases involving people injured through violence at work and work-related stress claims.  I have experience in Multi Claimant actions and PIP implant cases, which have left women with significant injuries.

In my time away from work I like to spend time as much time as I can with my family.  I also like swimming, reading and meeting new people.

I would be delighted to be able to help you with your personal injury claim, so please call me now on 0800 285 1266 or complete our Free Online Contact Form and I’ll be in touch shortly.
