I have worked as a Paralegal in the Medical Negligence department since September 2015 and I am currently a second year Trainee Solicitor in this department.
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.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
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.”
