Rosalie Reading



I am a solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in Birmingham. I joined Irwin Mitchell in 2010 and completed my training contract with the firm before qualifying in 2012.

I help a variety of clients in pursuing claims such as gynaecological issues, birth injury claims, stillbirths/neonatal deaths, negligently performed surgery, delayed diagnosis of cancer, infection, orthopaedic surgery and fatal claims. 

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I have a particular interest in birth injury claims and those concerning gynaecological issues such as delayed diagnosis of cancer. I have worked on several high value birth injury claims and was involved in achieving a settlement which, if paid in lump sum, would have been the equivalent to £10.2 million for a client who suffered from Autistic Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, epilepsy and numerous other cognitive and behavioural problems as a result of a negligent delay in delivery. 

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I am keen to help others seek redress when they have been let down; whether that entails bringing an action against NHS Trusts, GPs and/or doctors in private practice. I am extremely passionate about my area of work and I am driven by the ethos that clients needs should always be placed at the heart of every case.  

Often the main goal for individuals and families when coming to Irwin Mitchell for help is to get answers rather than compensation. I find it extremely rewarding to know that through our work we are able to make a real difference to people's lives and allow families to fund appropriate care regimes, conduct necessary adaptations to accommodation and purchase specialist aids and equipment in order to enhance their lives.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Outside of work I enjoy engaging in what I term the three S's - shopping, swimming and socialising with family and friends. It's a family joke that if shopping was a sport then I would have achieved my black belt!

Client Testimonials

“Thank you for all your support over the past few years. I couldn't wish for a better solicitor to guide me through the case.”

    Lawyers Secure Rule Change After Helping Brain Injury Victim Secure Long-Term Support

    "The proceedings in this matter were unduly protracted due to the Defendant’s attempt to withdraw a Part 36 offer after it was accepted. "There were a total of six court hearings relating to the Part 36 offer and the issue of whether the Defendant should have been permitted to withdraw, with this ultimately meaning that our client faced a long delay in finally securing this vital financial support. "While nothing will change the catastrophic, life-changing injuries that our client has suffered, this settlement will ensure she is able to access the long-term care and support she will need to get the best from life. "We are delighted to have helped her secure this, but are also happy that the outcome of this case has provided important clarity on the procedures that must be following in civil cases when it comes to the withdrawal of Part 36 offers. "It is hugely important that those taking civil action are kept comprehensively up-to-date on all actions taken by the Defendant, with the Defence also recognising that an offer can only be withdrawn if there is sufficient reason to do so."
