Between April 2000 and June 2003 Ms Goodwin was employed as an insurance adviser by Bennetts, a firm of insurance brokers.  Her main work was inviting customers to renew their insurances.

In summer 2002 she was the front seat passenger in a car which had a minor accident.   She was thrown forward in her seat and put her hands out to protect herself, causing them to strike the dashboard.  Thereafter she suffered aching in both wrists which became steadily worse. As a result she took time off work in October/November 2002.
