Lauren Bullock

Solicitor

Biography

I am a solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in Leeds.

My caseload covers a variety of claims including cases against hospital trusts, GPs and private practitioners.

I have experience in a broad range of claims including delays in diagnosis of cancer, failure to consent, substandard surgery, post surgical complications, wrongful birth, anaesthetic awareness, delay in diagnosis of encephalitis and failure to provide psychiatric treatment resulting in self harm. In 2016, I represented a woman who was mistakenly given a muscle relaxant after an operation and subsequently suffered cardiac arrest - read more in the Yorkshire Post.

I am also a founder of Irwin Mitchell's Boccia club in Leeds, find out more here or by downloading a leaflet about our relationship with the club (PDF).

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I have a strong sense of justice. My father was a police officer and so I grew up with an interest in the English legal system. I developed an interest in medical negligence after spending time in the team during my training contract. 

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Without a doubt it is the clients. Clients contact us when they or a loved one has suffered a life changing injury and I like being able to help them whether that is through obtaining compensation to pay for rehabilitation or therapy, seeking an apology from their opponent or to find answers in their quest to understand what went wrong.

The satisfaction I get in guiding a client and their family through the claims process is huge. It's really rewarding to support every client, seeing how the work the team does makes a difference.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Not only am I at one of the best law firms in the country but I am surrounded by people who are specialists in their fields. Irwin Mitchell is motivated to improve clients' lives not only through the claims process but through promoting rehabilitation, accessible sports and inclusion.

Irwin Mitchell is an ambitious, driven and passionate law firm but still retains a local, approachable and caring feel that I think makes it unique.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I am the captain of a local netball team and play regularly in a league. I also enjoy skiing, travelling and spending time with my family and friends.

My undergraduate degree was in History and I continue to have a real passion for the subject.
