I have worked as a Paralegal in the Medical Negligence department since October 2015.
I specialise in helping both adults and children and I have worked on a wide range of cases involving stillbirths, delays in diagnosis, missed fractures and fatal cases. I have a particular interest in delayed cancer diagnosis cases due to the complexities of the medicine and sensitive nature of the case.
Charity and community work is also an important part of my role. I have acted as a volunteer and coach for the Sheffield Smashers Boccia club since June 2016, whose members suffer from both physical and learning disabilities. I am also a keen netball player for the Irwin Mitchell team and I take part in the annual tournament to raise money for our charity of the year.
Clients come to us not only for the compensation, but to find answers to what has happened to them and why. I aim to investigate this part of their claim as well as the legal side, to offer both answers and support to the client and their family.
“Massive thank you to you and Zoe for the support today. You both kept me calm and helped me soldier through. Lovely to have met you both too.”
“Very happy from start to finish. Kimberley Nightingale was so helpful, always got back to me promptly and explained things clearly to me. She guided me through the whole process step by step and would definitely recommend this company and Kimberley.”
“I would like to thank you and your team for all the work and effort put in to gaining a positive outcome, although we wish that things could and should have been different and that no amount of money can bring our mum back.”
“I am genuinely grateful for all your support and guidance.”
What was meant to be a joyous occasion turned into heartbreak for Becky and Jordan following the serious failings in care their family received.
“Whilst we are pleased that the Trust admitted liability we feel that it could have acted with more urgency to apologise to Becky, moving to reassure her that it had learned lessons from Freya’s tragic death.
“Sadly, we see through our work that stillbirths and neonatal deaths are still a significant issue in the UK. Becky and Jordan want to do everything they can to make sure what they went through doesn’t happen to other parents."
Alan and the rest of the family have been left devastated by Shirley’s death and feel that more should have been done to help diagnose her condition.
“They feel that if Shirley had been admitted to a ward, ongoing observations would have picked up her underlying gallbladder infection which rapidly escalated, leading to perforation. Shirley would then have received suitable medical care to treat her condition.
“An internal investigation carried out by Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust found areas of concern regarding her care and states an ultrasound would probably have picked up Shirley’s inflamed gallbladder, meaning she would have been admitted and there may have been an opportunity to alter the outcome.
“We are now investigating these concerns and call on the NHS Trust to ensure it implements the recommendations made in its report to help prevent other families suffering the pain that Alan has following Shirley's death.”
