Biography

I am a solicitor specialising in claims relating to negligent medical treatment. I handle cases across the entire field of medicine, from minor orthopaedic injuries through to stroke and birth injury claims.  In addition, I frequently represent families at Inquests.

During my career I have recovered millions of pounds in compensation for clients.  I have been involved with high profile cases such as the Alder Hey organ retention litigation and I personally conducted the first Article 2 Human Rights inquest in North Wales which concerned a patient suicide.

I have a particular interest in cases relating to fatalities, birth injuries and spinal injury cases.

Recent Settlements

  • £125,000 in respect of bladder injuries following negligent gynaecological surgery
  • £52,000 following the death of a newborn baby as a result of obstetric treatment
  • £200,000 for neurological injuries as a result of a delayed diagnosis of cauda equina syndrome
  • £400,000 plus £21,500 per annum for life as a result of loss of vision due to delayed diagnosis of a blocked hydrocephalus shunt.

What Inspired You Into Law?

As a teenager I discovered that I was able to anticipate and solve problems before my peers.  I got on well with people and was adept when necessary at backing up my views.  Going into the law seemed a natural choice for me. 

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I enjoy meeting with clients and helping them find a solution to their situation. 

Often they have received not only poor medical treatment, but they have then been let down further by a lack of an explanation, an apology or even help and advice in securing necessary equipment or funding resources. 

As a consequence, the advice that I offer can lead to life-changing outcomes, whether reassuring them that they not alone, helping organise rehabilitation or securing compensation. 

Why Do You Like Working For Irwin Mitchell?

Irwin Mitchell has a large number of solicitors who are specialists in their own field.  This team-based approach means that I can always obtain high quality, up to date advice for my clients if other issues arise.  The attitude of the firm is very much about getting the best for our clients in each and every case.

What Do You Do Outside The Office?

Away from the office I enjoy spending time with my family, travelling, watching Liverpool FC and playing guitar.

    Parents Call For NHS Guidelines And Holiday Resources Review After Baby Dies In Hospital

    “Natalie and Nicholas were left completely devastated by the tragic loss of their first child, Poppy. “Now the legal case is finished, they are keen to ensure that lessons are learnt from this terrible ordeal in order to improve patient safety in the future and hopefully reduce the risk of other parents from suffering the way they have. “Their experience highlights the need to ensure that guidelines are adhered to, first and foremost. If necessary, any decision to depart from protocol should be properly assessed by senior staff in advance and fully take into account the impact of any holiday period on resources. This issue needs to be addressed within the NHS on a national level."
