Emma Truin, Head of Personal Injury

Head of the firm's Personal Injury Team, Emma has dealt with hundreds of serious and catastrophic brain, orthopaedic and spinal injury claims.

A Trustee of Headway Cambridgeshire, Emma is recognised for her experience in representing clients affected by brain injury and her client care skills are acknowledged within both Chambers & Partners and Legal 500:

“Emma continues to draw praise from peers and counsel for her thorough and sympathetic handling of brain injury cases. One market commentator states ‘She is extremely switched-on, conscientious and experienced, but what I admire the most is the trust that her clients have in her’.”

In 2016, Emma was named a leading individual in East Anglia in the Personal Injury (Claimant) category by the Legal 500. Emma became a Partner at Barr Ellison in August 2017.

Emma is an accredited member of The Law Society’s Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme, a Member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL), a Steering Group Member of the Eastern Region Brain Injury Forum, and is accredited as a specialist solicitor by both the Spinal Injury Association and Headway, the brain injury association.

"Emma Truin develops strong supportive and understanding relationships with her clients and their families; she goes to see them at home rather than making appointments in her office. She is confident and persuasive in her dealings with other lawyers, whilst always being professional, polite and well mannered. But she can also be hard-nosed and effective when seeking the best settlements for her clients. She is approachable and well-liked, and respected by everyone with whom she works. That is the type of negotiator I would want on my side!"
Cathy Johnson, Brain Injury Case Manager and Director of Rehab Without Walls

"I cannot praise Barr Ellison too highly. I would without any hesitation recommend their service to any prospective client. I always felt that we received a very supportive and personal service and were treated with a great deal of respect.

The overall level of service was excellent. We were kept informed on a regular basis by email, letter, telephone conversation and face to face meetings. The firm appointed independent, professional experts to offer specialist advice and testimony on matters relating to the case. The advice was totally relevant and went a long way in achieving a satisfactory end to proceedings.

Emma Truin was completely professional in the way she handled the case. She was friendly, approachable and always available to answer questions. She provided constant reassurance and was very knowledgeable on legal matters and throughout proceedings Emma dealt with matters promptly and efficiently. She instilled trust and confidence in all our dealings."

"You have been a friend, a colleague and a great supporter of Headway Cambridgeshire and all that we do."
