Biography

I am a solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in Leeds.

My caseload covers a variety of claims including cases against hospital trusts, GPs and private practitioners.

I have experience in a broad range of claims including delays in diagnosis of cancer, failure to consent, substandard surgery, post surgical complications, wrongful birth, anaesthetic awareness, delay in diagnosis of encephalitis and failure to provide psychiatric treatment resulting in self harm. In 2016, I represented a woman who was mistakenly given a muscle relaxant after an operation and subsequently suffered cardiac arrest.

I am also a founder of Irwin Mitchell's Boccia club in Leeds, find out more here or by downloading a leaflet about our relationship with the club (PDF).

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I have a strong sense of justice. My father was a police officer and so I grew up with an interest in the English legal system. I developed an interest in medical negligence after spending time in the team during my training contract. 

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Without a doubt it is the clients. Clients contact us when they or a loved one has suffered a life changing injury and I like being able to help them whether that is through obtaining compensation to pay for rehabilitation or therapy, seeking an apology from their opponent or to find answers in their quest to understand what went wrong.

The satisfaction I get in guiding a client and their family through the claims process is huge. It's really rewarding to support every client, seeing how the work the team does makes a difference.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Not only am I at one of the best law firms in the country but I am surrounded by people who are specialists in their fields. Irwin Mitchell is motivated to improve clients' lives not only through the claims process but through promoting rehabilitation, accessible sports and inclusion.

Irwin Mitchell is an ambitious, driven and passionate law firm but still retains a local, approachable and caring feel that I think makes it unique.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I enjoy playing tennis, skiing, travelling, and spending time with my family and friends. I have recently returned from a 5 month sabbatical living in Malaga, where I learnt Spanish and taught English to Spanish children.

My undergraduate degree was in History and I continue to have a real passion for the subject. I am studying part-time for a Masters in Second World War Studies.

"I cannot praise Samuel Hill and Lauren Bullock of Irwin Mitchell highly enough for all their help and dedication in coming to a successful conclusion... for delayed diagnosis of malignant melanoma claim. They always dealt with me in a sympathetic and compassionate manner... They always kept me informed of progress, gave me sound and honest advice and took the time to listen to me... I know that they were dealing with a large number of claims at any one time, I always felt that they cared about me as an individual rather than one of many. I have no hesitation in recommending Irwin Mitchell.” - Former client

    Bradford Couple Expecting Second Baby Desperate For Answers Following Loss Of Newborn Son

    “Yvette and Paul were understandably devastated by the passing of their son Jacob last year. This was meant to be a happy time for them, but sadly it ended in tragedy. They are both trying to come to terms with what has happened, but it is difficult for them as there are still so many unanswered questions as to what went wrong during Jacob’s birth. Delays by the NHS Trust in providing the information mean that an inquest into Jacob’s death is not likely to take place until later this year. Now that Yvette is pregnant again, there is obviously a lot of worry and anxiety and the couple really need to know what led to the unexpected death of their baby and that the mistakes identified will not happen again. We are supporting them and liaising with the NHS Trust on their behalf. The NHS Trust made some recommendations in the Serious Incident Report and we hope that these will be implemented as soon as possible to improve care at the Trust.”

    Coroner Orders Health Trusts To Take Action Following Death Of Leeds Teenager With Mental Health Problems

    “The internal NHS investigations conducted following her death and subsequent inquest have highlighted that more should have been done to help Afrika. “Young people who are known to mental health services falling between the cracks is a growing concern. Afrika’s death is a stark reminder of what can happen when people do not receive the support they need. “While nothing will make up for the anguish and pain her family continue to face, it is vital that lessons are learned from Afrika’s case to improve patient care. “We will continue to support Beverley at this incredibly difficult time to help her try to come to terms with what has happened the best she can.”

    Mother Of Teenager Who Died Following Mental Health Support Issues Urges NHS To Improve Services

    “This is a truly tragic case in which we believe that an extremely bright and talented teenager simply did not receive the care and support she needed at an incredibly difficult time. “While nothing will sadly change what has happened in this desperately sad case, the report into Afrika’s care suggests there are clear improvements which can be made to improve mental health support for those close to 18 and therefore moving from youth to adult services. “We are determined to help her family not only gain justice regarding her case but also ensure that lessons are learned which will ultimately improve care.”
