Sallie Booth



I am a Consultant in the Personal Injury department, with particular experience of group litigation on behalf of claimants including cases involving child abuse, defective products and medical negligence. 

I have been involved in some of the most important and high profile group action cases, including:

  • Haemophilia litigation on behalf of HIV and hepatitis victims
  • Cadbury’s salmonella cases
  • Vioxx
  • Camelford water pollution cases

I was also involved in claims arising from the ‘Marchioness’ disaster, including the judicial review proceedings resulting in the resumption of the inquest and representation of victims and families at the Marchioness public enquiry and non-statutory enquiry.

    Public Health Lawyers Urge Consumers Not To Disregard Mars Galaxy Recall Over Salmonella Fears

    “We have seen at first-hand the effect salmonella can have on people and would encourage anyone who has bought one of the recalled products to heed health advice and not to eat it. The very young, the very elderly and those who suffer with gastrointestinal conditions are particularly vulnerable to suffering serious health effects from salmonella. “It’s positive that Mars has chosen to recall its Galaxy products as a precaution, and consumers should feel reassured. Anyone who feels unwell after eating one of the products should seek advice from their GP or the NHS 111 service. “It’s also important that Mars now launches an investigation into the potential contamination to tighten up safety measures and to reassure its consumers.”

    “Many of the victims will need specialist treatment and help to come to terms with having been caught up in such a terrifying event. “We are now working with the victims to investigate what more could have been done to prevent the attack. It hasn’t yet been confirmed how the corrosive substance passed security searches, and a number of eyewitnesses have criticised security staff for failing to carry out thorough searches. “London has become the centre of indiscriminate acid attack crime. The incidence of attacks has almost doubled since 2015 to as many as 450 last year, with over 1800 since 2010.

    Rogue Surgeon Ian Paterson Sentenced To 15 Years In Jail

    This sentence confirms the severity of his crimes and highlights the need for much improved supervision and monitoring of doctors who treat their patients both in the NHS and the private sector. “These patients harmed by Mr Paterson will have to live with what happened to them for the rest of their lives and some civil cases for compensation to help them rebuild are still in progress. “Those patients affected by Mr Paterson have some justice for what happened but nothing can turn back the clock for them personally and for many what happened to them was life-changing. The numbers of people affected are staggering and it is crucial that the whole healthcare industry learns from this urgently and improves policies and checks, and prevents any possible repeats.”
