Gurpreet Lalli

Solicitor

Biography

I am a Solicitor specialising in medical negligence based in the Cambridge office.

Since qualifying as a solicitor in 2015 I have acted exclusively for clients in medical negligence cases, helping people bring claims against NHS Trusts, GPs and private practitioners. I manage my own caseload, covering a wide range of issues, including:

  • Spinal injuries, including Cauda Equina Syndrome
  • Adult brain injuries, including failures in treatment and prevention in strokes and subarachnoid haemorrhage
  • Wrongful birth claims
  • Delay in diagnosis of cancer
  • Ophthalmic injuries
  • Birth injuries
  • Avoidable deaths including stillbirth and neonatal deaths

Of these, I have a particular interest in those claims relating to Cauda Equina Syndrome, wrongful birth, the delayed diagnosis of subarachnoid haemorrhage, as well as claims arising from the diagnosis and prevention failures in relation to strokes. I also assist a number of clients who have lost loved ones as a result of errors which could have been avoided in their medical treatment.

In addition to my own caseload I also assist Guy Forster, the Head of the Medical Negligence team in Cambridge, with complex cases often involving children who have sadly suffered injuries at birth.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

The most rewarding part of my role is when I secure an outcome for my clients, be it an apology, an explanation about the treatment they received, or compensation.

It's gratifying to know that my clients are satisfied when they have completed the legal process and are able to move forward knowing that they have the answers they need.

What do you like about working for Irwin Mitchell?

It's fantastic working for a firm that puts their clients first and foremost. Irwin Mitchell offers a complete package of services that clients may need throughout their claim and beyond.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Away from the office I love to read a good thriller, drink copious amounts of coffee, cook up a storm in the kitchen and travel the world.

    Hospital Admits Maternity Delays Led To Baby’s Death After Hours Of Life

    “The loss of Ayana has been absolutely heart-breaking for Venisha and Atish. “It has been made all the more difficult to know that, had Ayana been delivered earlier, as she should have been, in all likelihood she would have survived to be a healthy child. “We welcome the Trust’s decision to accept liability on behalf of the hospital involved. We hope that the staff involved and the Trust as a whole have learnt lessons so that another family does not have to go through a similar tragedy. Of course all of this has sadly come too late for Venisha and Atish and we will continue to work with them and support then through this difficult period.”

    Inquest Finds There Were Failures Shortly Before Ghurkha Soldier’s Death

    “This is a sad case and, over a year later, Chandra is still trying to come to terms with the loss of her husband and her child’s father. “Chandra has been awaiting the outcome of the inquest for a long time and she, along with the family, is relieved to have some answers at last. It has been their wish that lessons can be learned from Prem’s death. “The family will always believe that earlier identification of distress by staff at the Cavell Centre could have prolonged, or even saved, Prem’s life by transferring him to Peterborough City Hospital for emergency treatment. “The Serious Incident Report and Inquest have revealed some areas of concern and we hope that these will be addressed as soon as possible to improve patient safety.”
