Lydia Arntzen



I'm a medical negligence solicitor based in our Birmingham office. I have worked at Irwin Mitchell since 2011 when I started as a paralegal.

I act exclusively for clients in medical negligence claims. I represent clients against NHS Trusts, private hospitals and GPs.

I assist with a range of high value, complex medical negligence claims as well as having a broad case load of my own. I represent clients who have suffered injury or illness in a variety of circumstances including delay in diagnosis, negligent surgery and fatal claims.

I take satisfaction in ensuring that that clients who have suffered as a result of medical negligence receive the compensation that they deserve.
