Sezan Taner

Solicitor

Biography

I am a solicitor in the Medical Negligence & Personal Injury team of our London office. I began my career at Irwin Mitchell in 2013 as a paralegal, before undertaking my training contract and qualifying with the firm in March 2017.

I specialise in medical negligence and personal injury claims, which have mainly occurred as a result of road traffic accidents. I manage my own mixed caseload including fatal claims, surgical negligence and delay in diagnosis, whilst also assisting senior members of the team with complex claims involving brain damage and birth injury.

As a result of having a dual specialism, I also deal with claims arising from an accident with subsequent negligent medical treatment whilst at hospital.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I first took an interest in law when volunteering as a student in my local Magistrates' Court. My role involved guiding victims and witnesses through the difficult experience of giving evidence in court. I saw the positive impact that sharing knowledge had on an individual going through a challenging moment in their lives. It inspired me to throw myself into my studies and get to a position where I could use my knowledge to help others.

I am lucky to have found a career where I will never stop learning and I can use that to effect positive change for individuals.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

My role enables me to secure funding for clients which they need for ongoing treatment and support. I find this extremely rewarding as it really does make a positive difference to clients' lives.

Rehabilitation is also a key focus of each and every one of our claims and it is a privilege to work with a team and a network of specialists in this field who can assist in planning towards improving a client's quality of life.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I practise yoga and have an interest in health and wellbeing. I enjoy reading and spending time with friends and family, including my adopted pet hamster, Marge. I am a supporter of human rights and animal welfare campaigns and try to contribute where I can.
