In the CICA tribunal Jasmine has been instructed to represent a range of appellants including those who have been victims of historic sexual abuse, rape and dependents of the victims of murder.
Jasmine has acted for Appellants who have sustained various injuries including, for example, severe brain injury (requiring 24-hour care), severe psychological injuries and injuries of a sensitive nature.
Likewise, in her military work, Jasmine has acted for claimants who have sustained life changing injuries, including brain injury, PTSD and amputation. It follows that Jasmine is well versed in injuries which are particular to the armed forces including NFCI.
In respect of abuse claims, Jasmine has acted in cases where limitation, liability, causation and quantum are in dispute. In acting for victims of sexual, emotional and financial abuse, (including where the perpetrator is employed in a position of power and in the public eye), she has gained awareness of the particular injuries which flow from such abuse and has experience in respect of vulnerable clients including those who lack capacity and require involvement of the Court of Protection. Within this aspect of her practice, Jasmine has acted in both mediation and JSM, and again, as sole Counsel and as Junior to Silks.
Jasmine brings experience and expertise to clinical negligence matters, high value and complex CICA matters, claims arising from service in the armed forces and claims arising from abuse. Jasmine also accepts work on more general personal injury cases.
By virtue of the work that Jasmine undertakes she is highly sensitive and client-focussed.
In addition to the above, Jasmine also assists the team by servicing chambers’ contract insurance work, as and when required.
