I manage my own mixed caseload including fatal claims, surgical negligence and delay in diagnosis of cancer cases whilst also assisting senior members of the team with complex and high-value claims involving birth injury such as cerebral palsy and Erb's palsy and spinal injury. I have a special interest in representing families at inquests where it is suspected that a death has arisen out of clinical negligence.
I have always wanted to pursue a career involving helping people and making a difference. When I began my career in law I very quickly became drawn towards personal injury and clinical negligence as I could see that one of the key roles of a solicitor in this area of law is working closely with clients and supporting them and their families, which I enjoy.
Often the most important aspect of a clinical negligence claim for clients is gaining recognition that something has gone wrong, and I would therefore say that I feel most rewarded when a client is satisfied that this has been achieved. Another key aspect of clinical negligence claims is obtaining compensation for clients so that they can rebuild their lives following what are often very serious and distressing injuries.
I am proud to be part of a team who offer an exceptional service to their clients. The medical law and patients' rights team have the benefit of fantastic resources and access to a broad range of specialists across the firm including wills and probate, human rights and client liaison managers. This all goes towards running a successful clinical negligence claim.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, travel, good food and drink, and the theatre.
This is a tragic case that has left a family devastated by the loss of a loving husband, father and grandfather.
“They would like to take this opportunity to thank the Coroner for taking the time to investigate the reasons for their loss and are grateful to have received answers to the many questions they had about the events leading to Bob’s death.
“Events such as these should not happen under any circumstances and we whilst we appreciate the Trust taking action and confirming lessons have been learnt, we expect these lessons to have been shared transparently throughout the NHS. This open approach is the only way to protect the safety of patients and prevent the same tragedy from happening again.”
