I have been qualified as a solicitor for more than 25 years and have specialised in medical negligence and personal injury throughout that time. I now practise exclusively in the field of medical negligence from our Richmond office. My clients are based throughout the country and I am happy to see clients at home, in one of our other offices in Hampshire and London or at another suitable venue. I also act as a Court of Protection Deputy for clients who have received a substantial sum of damages and am also the Legal Aid lead for the firm.
My cases involve injuries of maximum severity and include brain injuries acquired at birth or as a result of infection. In 2014 I succeeded in a lengthy High Court trial and obtained substantial compensation for a client who lost her sight as a result of delayed diagnosis of meningococcal meningitis. In 2017 I obtained over £3 million for a former vet who sustained serious neurological injuries as a result of delay in diagnosis of Cauda Equina Syndrome. I also have an interest in cases arising from gynaecological surgery, colo- rectal surgery and delayed diagnosis of cancer.
My clients have life changing injuries and it is my role to guide them through the litigation process and to obtain maximum compensation as they nearly always need care and support in the future and are often unable to work. My experience is that clients seeking redress for clinical negligence are often looking for much more than compensation and often want answers and to ensure that medical mistakes do not happen again.
