I am a Partner in the Medical Negligence team in Birmingham and I have worked at Irwin Mitchell since 2009.
All of the cases I handle consider the care and treatment that doctors and other medical practitioners have provided to their patients. I act exclusively for the patient, fully investigating the care they have received and providing answers to the questions they have on how their injury came about.
I run my own varied caseload which includes cases resulting in fatalities, delays in diagnosis of cancer, orthopaedic injuries and serious brain/spinal injury.
I have a particular interest in military cases, progressing claims for ex and serving military personnel who are concerned by the medical treatment they have received. As I have personal knowledge of the military I use this to ensure I support my client not only through the legal case but also through the many changes and effects an injury can have.
I have recovered significant sums for my clients including multi-million pound awards.

"I received excellent service from Irwin Mitchell throughout my case. Laura Daly, Senior Associate Solicitor, provided a very professional service and I came to value her opinion and wise counsel during the whole legal process.

“Irwin Mitchell have been amazing whilst dealing with my Fathers medical negligence claim.

"I dealt with only considerate, caring, professional people who made me feel at ease with the process, over a 4 year period Laura Daly has dealt with my case and I could not of wished for a better understanding, compassionate solicitor. With the help of Michael, Kate, would consistently communicate with the same personable approach.
Advice was always explained thoroughly with no pressure added to an already difficult time and they all really got to know us as a family which in turn has helped with the ongoing case. This all resulted in our claim being successful however without the continued support of Laura and her team at times I’m not sure I would of always been able to continue, Brilliant service from start to finish which I will always be grateful for." -5* Trustpilot review
"Laura spent considerable time with me and listened to every detail of my experience. I felt she was compassionate and understanding and from day one I trusted her implicitly. I was given regular updates via both letter and telephone on how my case was progressing and I was always encouraged to ask questions. "-5* Trustpilot review
"Laura and her team made it there top priority that I was made aware off everything that was being said and what was going to happen. I have never known such a level of professionalism, understanding and a real care for me as an individual. I really hope that we will never have to meet under the same circumstances ever again but as a hole Laura Daly and her team made it as painless as possible.
I have not enough words to thank everyone at Irwin Mitchell for all there hard work and dedication that they have shown me. That's all I can say is thank you Laura and everyone on her team you have made the very best out of a very bad situation and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart"-5* Trustpilot review
"I was very pleased with Irwin Mitchell's first class service, under the direction of Laura Daly, in pursuing my personal injury/clinical negligence case. Inevitably, this was a lengthy process but she was invariably prompt, pleasant and efficient in ultimately securing a satisfactory outcome." - Mr E, Client
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I always knew I wanted to enter a profession that could make a difference to peoples' lives. At a young age, I was lucky enough to be offered work experience at a local solicitors firm. It struck me how effective a solicitor could be in resolving others' issues. From then on, it was the only career I ever wanted.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
My clients have all suffered life-changing injuries, often abruptly. I enjoy helping my clients understand their injury, being with them on their road to recovery and ultimately, securing funds to put them back in the position they would have been had they not been injured. This is often incredibly difficult but once achieved, it is very rewarding to see and have been a part of.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
