I head the Medical Negligence team in London and also have expertise in neurotrauma. I specialise in claims for adults and children who have suffered brain or spinal injury, associated with permanent disability, caused as a result of clinical negligence or as a result of a road traffic collision.
Our aim is to obtain interim payments wherever possible, so that we can put rehabilitation, a care package and suitable accommodation in place before the claim is concluded. As a team, we are dedicated to improving the quality of life of our clients.
Our clinical negligence team has extensive experience in clinical negligence claims arising from obstetric, neonatal, anaesthetic, neurosurgical, cardiac and psychiatric care.

That I would be able to make a real difference to people's lives
I find it hugely rewarding that through compensation, we are able to improve the quality of lives of our clients by putting in place early rehabilitation, care and support wherever possible.
Working with talented and passionate lawyers, all working for a common goal to help repair lives that have often been devastated.
I enjoy walking, travel and relaxing with family and friends.
Sadly, through our work we see first-hand the impact undiagnosed GBS can have on babies and their families. Newborns can be left severely brain damaged due to being starved of oxygen as the infection takes over their bodies, and in some devastating cases the outcome can be fatal.
The work of Group B Strep Support and the information they provide is invaluable and we look forward to working closely with this excellent charity, to not only help those affected by GBS but to also help reduce the number of life-changing and fatal cases.
“We’re very happy to be able to continue our support of such a fantastic and unique event.
“Parallel London’s event last year welcomed a huge turnout, and it was great to see that so many people with disabilities of all forms were able to partake in this rewarding event.
“This is exactly what our Don’t Quit, Do It campaign is about, and is a clear example of the role that sports and physical activity can have upon the lives of disabled people.”
“Had Helen or Martha received the antibiotics, Martha would have been like any other healthy, happy baby and no doubt gone on to live a full independent life with a job, family – everything any other person would experience.
"The settlement package will fund Martha’s ongoing care and therapy; along with any adaptations she may need to her home, for the rest of her life which will enable her to live more comfortably.
"I hope that lessons are learnt from the terrible and life-changing errors made in this case in order to improve patient safety in the future and stop any other child suffering such a distressing and avoidable injury.”
“Whether it’s feeling part of a community, developing independence or feeling the exhilaration of crossing the finishing line, physical activity can play a key role in the rehabilitation and recovery of people who’ve suffered life-changing injuries.
“The unique strength of the Superhero Series is that it will unite all disabilities and encourage participation with as much or as little support as needed, so we’re very proud to be an official partner and supporter.”
