Alison Eddy

Partner

Biography

I head the Medical Negligence team in London and also have expertise in neurotrauma. I specialise in claims for adults and children who have suffered brain or spinal injury, associated with permanent disability, caused as a result of clinical negligence or as a result of a road traffic collision.

Our aim is to obtain interim payments wherever possible, so that we can put rehabilitation, a care package and suitable accommodation in place before the claim is concluded. As a team, we are dedicated to improving the quality of life of our clients.

Our clinical negligence team has extensive experience in clinical negligence claims arising from obstetric, neonatal, anaesthetic, neurosurgical, cardiac and psychiatric care.
