I am Irwin Mitchell's Regional Managing Partner for Bristol and Head of the Bristol Medical Negligence team.
I specialise in representing individuals who have suffered an injury because of the negligence of a Hospital Trust, GP or private doctor. I have a particular interest in injuries caused during pregnancy or birth to either mother or baby.
I have been involved in a lot of cases resulting from delayed meningitis diagnoses. I also have a lot of experience in representing clients at inquests and fatal claims when families have a lost a relative or loved one because of the negligence of a doctor or hospital.
Most of my clients are really looking for answers as to what has gone during their medical treatment and the independent medical reports that we obtain do often help with this.
Some of my clients have been left with severe disabilities and it is extremely rewarding when I obtain compensation which funds their care, rehabilitation and adaptations to property which maximises their quality of life and replaces their lost earnings which takes away financial worries.
I enjoy yoga and pilates and (a little bit!) of running. I love the sunshine and look forward to visiting my house in Jamaica.
“This is a terrible case which highlights the huge consequences that failings in surgery can have, with William suffering very serious injuries leaving him with no option but to leave work.
“Our investigations uncovered a range of concerns and our hope is now that every effort can be made to ensure that lessons are learned from this case. While we are delighted to have secured this settlement, it is clear that these circumstances should not be repeated in the future. The compensation awarded to William will support his long-term care, rehabilitation and therapy.”
We work closely with many people who live with mental health problems and when we heard about Noel’s challenge knew we wanted to help him make it possible.
MIND is a wonderful charity and we hope Noel’s amazing efforts will help get people talking about mental health and reduce the stigma that it holds. We wish Noel the best of luck and we’ll be supporting him every step of the way.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to help Harry afford his new chair and follow his dreams. He is hardworking, dedicated and pushes his abilities to the limit despite his cerebral palsy.
“His attitude of aiming high and overcoming the hurdles that face him, make him a living embodiment of our Don’t Quit, Do It campaign which encourages disabled people to get involved with sport and raises awareness of the impact that disability and inclusive sports can have.”
“Sepsis is a devastating condition but there are very obvious red flag signs which were missed in this case. Errors are unacceptable when it comes to matters over life and death.
“We work closely with UK Sepsis Trust to raise awareness of the condition and only last week it was announced that the health secretary is implementing a Public Health campaign for sepsis, which is promising.
“More must be done to educate our doctors so that the condition is recognised earlier when the chances of survival are significantly greater. Lessons must be learned from the tragic death of Sam so that no other family has to go through what they have.”
