Frank Patterson

Partner

Biography

I specialise in medical negligence claims. I act on behalf of those who have been seriously injured through substandard medical treatment and also on behalf of the families of those who have died through inadequate or otherwise negligent medical treatment. I work in all areas of medical negligence including cancer misdiagnosis, surgical and non-surgical matters as well as birth injury cases.

I have over 25 years of experience handling medical negligence claim and during that time it has been my privilege to help families to try to restore their lives and achieve some measure of justice and redress after negligently caused injury.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

Injustice makes my blood boil! I wanted a career where I could get justice and redress for those who had been wronged by people or organisations who were more powerful.  

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

No one can turn the clock back, but legal redress and of course the compensation that is awarded can help people get their lives back on track and I think that is a job worth doing and worth doing well.
