Sanita joined Bott and Co in 2003 and has devoted herself to acting on behalf of people whose lives have been devastated by the carelessness of others. She knew from a young age that she wanted to be in a profession that helped the innocent.
Her career at the firm started in an assisting role, which led her to become a Litigation Executive and she quickly progressed to her current role as Deputy Legal Manager.
“Working in so many differing roles in the company has taught me to appreciate everyone’s roles and the impact each role has on customer service and client relations as each role has massive importance to the overall success of the business. Working my way up in the legal field has taught me there is no substitute for experience and hard work in the fight for client justice.”
She understands how frustrating it can be when someone is injured due to someone else’s negligence. Their injury goes beyond physical pain and it can affect their family, their job and lifestyle.
There’s no better feeling than representing an injured client and obtaining full compensation for the pain and suffering that a client has experienced. I am passionate about making the client’s journey as stress-free as possible and have dedicated my career to helping people recover from injuries,” says Sanita
She will do whatever is necessary to obtain fair and just compensation for her clients and is committed to keeping them frequently and fully informed about their cases so they can make sensible decisions throughout the legal process.
In addition to handling her own caseload, Sanita has mentors and trains junior team members and provides top-notch client advocacy from start to finish in injury claims, whether dealing with an insurer on the client’s behalf or presenting a legal case in court.
Sanita takes a keen interest in developments in the legal industry and how they are impacting on people injured in road accidents, regularly attending courses to ensure that her legal knowledge stays fresh and current.
Her approach is client centred and focuses on the claim being only a component part of the solution for his clients, putting rehabilitation at the centre of what she does.
She also has extensive experience of investigating and pursuing claims from all types of situations. She has regularly been involved in road traffic collision claims, acting on behalf of car drivers, motorcyclists and cyclists. She has experience in Uninsured Loss Recovery files for commercial vehicles, dealing with claims on behalf of small and large companies who hold fleet policies with well-known insurance brokers.
“I joined Bott and Co because of their dedication to helping people when they need it most as well as the firm’s career development opportunities for example offering to sponsor applicants through legal qualifications.”
Asked about what her professional highlight is to date, she said “I successfully defeated a Defendant’s request for appeal and permission to appeal which had already been refused once in the lower courts. The hearing was in the High Court which was dealt with by Mr Justice Blair (Tony Blair’s older brother).
In her spare time Sanita enjoys going to the gym, socialising with friends, reading and travelling. Amongst her favourite destinations is Argentina, where she says she fell in love with the culture, beauty and diversity of the country, particularly the views and sights of the capital Buenos Aires.
