I am a Solicitor based in the Medical Negligence team in London. Since qualifying I have spent time growing my own varied caseload of claims and have experience of a wide range of clinical negligence claims. These include:
- Delays in diagnosis/treatment
- Spinal Injuries
Before joining Irwin Mitchell I worked as a paralegal for the MDDUS (The Medical and Dental Defence Union of Scotland). This is a UK-wide defence organisation which provides legal support for healthcare professionals. During my time there I worked on Inquests, clinical negligence claims and provided general healthcare advice.
For a time I also worked for Kingsley Napley Solicitors, focusing on high value and complex clinical negligence claims. Following this, I joined McMillan Williams as a paralegal in 2014, later qualifying as a solicitor there too. I have also volunteered for a medical advice charity, Actions Against Medical Accident (AvMA), the UK charity for patient safety and justice.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I enjoyed working as a paralegal and specifically enjoyed working in medical negligence litigation. The cases can be both high value and complex, involving a number of experts which I find very interesting.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Being able to help secure favourable settlements for clients who find themselves in emotionally difficult situations when dealing with life changing events.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
Irwin Mitchell has an outstanding depth of expertise in the area of medical negligence. It is a top tier firm and ranks as a leading law firm in the market. It is a helpful, caring and compassionate firm which supports clients with their rehabilitation. We also offer support to families when going through the inquest, as well as help accessing rehabilitation and financial advice in the wake of medical negligence.
What Do You Do Away From the Office?
Outside of work, I regularly attend exercise classes at my local gym. I enjoy reading and keeping up to date with current affairs. I also enjoy skiing and visiting new places.
"I cannot fault the help and advice from Irwin Mitchell that I received. They are very caring and respond to emails/calls very quickly. They fully explain the process and are extremely helpful and support you right through to the end. I would recommend this company to use, especially Katie Ebbs, solicitor, who has been brilliant throughout" - 5* Trustpilot review
