Rachael Stibbe gained her law degree in 2015 from the University of Kent at Canterbury and started practising in personal injury law in 2008.
Rachael worked for a national household insurer for a number of years, defending personal injury motor claims. She built up considerable road traffic experience as well as insurance and credit hire knowledge.
Rachael moved to a large Kent law firm in 2012 practising a wide range of mainly claimant personal injury work, as well as continuing a little defendant work. During her 7 years at this practice, she gained Fellowship of The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives.
Rachael built up a reputation as a formidable opponent and had the additional advantage from her defendant years in being able to tackle insurers productively and achieve the best results for her clients. Rachael also assisted and supervised junior colleagues where needed.
Rachael joined Furley Page in February 2020 as an Associate and handles mainly claimant personal injury work as well as defendant work where required. Rachael has extensive experience in personal injury claims including motor claims, trips and slips, accidents at work, hypermobility claims, criminal injury claims, product liability claims and professional negligence within a personal injury claim capacity.
Rachael has a wide ranging caseload which also includes higher value claims and more serious injuries. Rachael is experienced in advising clients on the prospects of their claim as well as the value of their damages and negotiating a good settlement figure.
Rachael is acutely aware of the importance of early rehabilitation for injured clients and where possible will arrange this with the at fault insurers as soon as permitted under the Rehabilitation Code. She appreciates that injured clients may require an early interim payment from the at fault insurers if they are unable to work and will arrange this where possible if instructed.
Rachael also has significant knowledge of appropriate medical experts to instruct and has particular experience of hypermobility claims and an understanding of hypermobility as a condition, which is often misunderstood.

Testimonials for Rachael
Client of Rachael Stibbe – Mr W, Gillingham - August 2021
In 2019 I was involved in a RTC where I was knocked off my bike. I spent 18 months trying to deal with the insurance company myself, get little movement from them. At this point I engaged with Furley Page and was appointed Rachael who took on my case. From this point on the pressure of dealing with the insurance company was taken away from me as Rachael took on this responsibility. Rachael kept me informed all the way through the process, she gave good advice and speedily acted upon my instructions. The result of which the case was resolved within 5 months with a figure well over double of what the insurance company initial offer. A very good service and if I ever need a personal injury Lawyer I shall use Furley Page’s services again. Again, Thank you for your support during this process.

Client of Rachael Stibbe – Miss H from Hythe - August 2021
I instructed Rachael to act in connection with a claim for damages for my fractured wrist. I found her to be very professional and efficient and she explained clearly the procedure involved and the costs that would be incurred. I was kept informed throughout. I did not have to chase up the matter and in my opinion the claim came to a satisfactory conclusion.
I would have no hesitation in recommending her services.
Client of Rachael Stibbe – Mr W of Folkestone - July 2021
I have known Rachael for a couple of years now while she has been fighting my case for me. I find Rachael very approachable and easy to communicate with by either email or phone. She has always been there when needed and always seems to be one step ahead of my next question, Rachael also speaks normal English and not "Solicitor Speak" which really helps. I would not hesitate to recommend Rachael to any of my friends or family if they ever needed legal help.
