Victoria Walne



I am a solicitor working in the serious injury and medical law teams. I joined Irwin Mitchell in 2014, having worked for six years at a leading personal injury and clinical negligence firm. 
I manage my own caseload of complex clinical negligence claims, including missed diagnosis of cancer and cauda equina, birth trauma, nursing and surgical errors and fatal claims.
I also act for clients involved in a wide range of accidents, in particular accidents on the road or at work. I am experienced in cases involving brain injury, psychiatric injury, pain disorders, serious orthopaedic injuries and chronic fatigue syndrome. 

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to pursue a career where I have the opportunity to make a positive difference to people's lives. Early on in my legal training, I knew that I wanted to work in this area of law in order to help people and also because of an interest in medicine.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Whether it is securing an acceptance of fault, an apology, funds for rehabilitation, care and therapy or fighting for the best compensation settlement, it is a great reward to be able to help put someone's life back on track at a very difficult and distressing time for them.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I enjoy working as part of an enthusiastic and experienced team of dedicated lawyers. At Irwin Mitchell we have a broad range of specialists and fantastic resources to hand to help us to do the best possible job for our clients.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Art, theatre and travel are my main interests. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family.

    This is a tragic case - Fay is not yet 30 but has been left with terminal cervical cancer and unable to have children. “Whilst the Trust has admitted liability for its failings relating to interpreting and reporting the smear results, we believe it also needs to give answers about how it was possible for these failures to happen and confirm what steps have been taken to ensure the same, frankly appalling mistakes, can never happen again. “We hope the Trust will now work with us to provide this information to Fay but also quickly agree a settlement that will fund her ongoing care costs and cover her loss of earnings as she is unable to return to her previous job.”
