Anne Brundell

Solicitor

Biography

I am a solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in Sheffield. I qualified in September 2014, having previously spent 16 months in the team as a trainee solicitor.

I handle my own caseload which encompasses a wide variety of medical negligence claims involving delays in diagnosis of cancer, errors made during surgery, injuries caused during childbirth and cases of stillbirth. I also deal with cases where a patient has sadly died as a result of negligent treatment by their GP or at hospital.

In addition to this, I assist senior members of the team with complex and high value cases, often where the negligence has resulted in the need for an amputation or a significant brain injury.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I initially became interested in a legal career following the death of my stepfather due to mesothelioma. Seeing how his compensation award made a difference to my family, made me want to pursue a career where I could help those who have been injured as a result of negligence.

I specialised in medical negligence because I like the challenge of looking into complex medical issues and working out how the legal tests apply in each case.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I enjoy helping clients through what is often a very difficult period in their lives. Being able to provide clients with some financial security and being able to answer their questions about what happened drives me to do the best for my clients. Knowing that I have achieved a successful outcome for my client is immensely rewarding.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

At Irwin Mitchell, I am surrounded by a large team of talented and experienced medical negligence lawyers. Everyone I work with really cares about their clients and strives to achieve the best possible outcome in every case.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

In my spare time I enjoy travelling to new places, reading and countryside walks. I lived in France for a year while I was at university, so I have a nostalgic love for all things French, including wine, cheese and French cinema!

    Newborn Baby Died After Missed Opportunity to Request Caesarean Section

    “Clara and Mark have been through a traumatic ordeal and they have both been left devastated after losing Delilah. “We had a number of concerns about the care that Clara received at the Leicester General Hospital over the two days, including the delays in obtaining a reliable record of the baby’s heart rate, problems with communication between staff and delays in making the decision for a caesarean section. “We are pleased that the Coroner has reached this conclusion and has confirmed what the family has suspected – that mistakes were made and that Delilah would have survived had such mistakes not been made.”

    Newborn Baby Died After Catalogue of Errors by Maternity Staff

    “Clara and Mark have been through a traumatic ordeal and they have both been left devastated after losing Delilah. “We are concerned about a number of aspects of Clara and Delilah’s care which have been highlighted in the Trust’s report, such as the quality and consistency of fetal monitoring and the delay in taking Clara for a caesarean section. “Clara’s pregnancy was classed as high risk due to her ulcerative colitis and her previous premature deliveries and she made sure that staff were aware of this. Clara should have been taken for a caesarean section much earlier to ensure a safe delivery. With appropriate care and a timely delivery, Delilah would have survived. "Now that the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust has admitted fault, we hope that action will be taken as soon as possible to ensure that the recommendations are taken into consideration. We hope that the Trust learns from its mistakes to ensure that future deaths can be prevented.”
