I specialise in medical negligence and personal injury claims, predominately as a result of road traffic accidents.
As a result of having a dual specialism, I also deal with claims arising from an accident with subsequent negligent medical treatment whilst at hospital.
I predominately act for clients that have sustained brain damage or spinal injuries, either as a result of medical negligence or personal injury. However, I also deal with a number of cases involving obstetrics and gynaecological issues, delay in diagnosis, and negligent surgical treatment.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
My main focus for each and every claim is to help my clients secure the funding that they need to pay for ongoing treatment and support. I find this extremely rewarding as it really does make a difference to every client's life.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
When clients approach us, it is often at a time of crisis. This can be an extremely difficult period for the client and their family, but at Irwin Mitchell we understand this and from the very outset, our focus in on providing help, support and treatment whilst the case is ongoing, which can really make a difference to our clients' recovery.
I enjoy working at Irwin Mitchell as the focus is on rehabilitation. In our department, we also have the benefit of being supported by our colleagues in Court of Protection, public law and employment, which are often key issues that are intertwined with a personal injury claim.
"Lauren was fantastic since the day she came to visit me at home after the accident. She gave me realistic advice from the start and made me feel valued and heard. She understood my constraints when replying to her and really specialised in my brain injury, she helped me even understand it myself, I just didn't know it at the time.
"Everything with Lauren was very smooth and I always felt that she was on my side. Lauren sheltered me from a lot of stress that she would have been under and I really would encourage anyone to work Lauren, especially those with a brain injury. Thank you Lauren!" - Katie Mcbride, client, 5* Trustpilot review

She listened to us and our concerns, we were always kept informed at every stage of the case, and helped to achieve an outcome that my daughter deserved. My daughter and us as a family have been through so much but with the help of Lauren and the team at Irwin Mitchell we can now help my daughter have a positive future. We highly recommend Lauren Hurney." - 5* Trustpilot review
