I deal with all areas of clinical negligence assisting people in bringing claims against NHS Trusts, GPs, and doctors in private practice. I have dealt with claims involving delays in diagnosing meningitis and cancer, malnutrition, cauda equina syndrome, and substandard surgery.
I have particular expertise in cosmetic surgery cases regularly advising on issues such as substandard breast surgery, adverse outcomes following dermal fillers and other treatments routinely seen within this area.
I've also recently settled a claim on behalf of a family against a local pharmacy for prescription errors made.
I have particular experience acting in fatal cases arising from medical negligence and assisting families with the inquest process.
What Inspired You To Get Into law?
I was first drawn to a career in medical negligence by my grandfather, who was also a lawyer, and I have since found that this area of the law is well suited to my desire to make a difference for individuals and families when they need it most, as well as my interest in health related issues.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I am committed to helping my clients find answers, as well as achieving compensation. It is this which I find most rewarding about my role.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
Irwin Mitchell is a great place to work because it is made up of like-minded individuals all with the desire to make a difference for their clients. It is a great environment in which we can share our experiences and find the most effective way of achieving the best outcomes.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
Away from the office, I enjoy playing local league football, tennis coaching and weight training. I also enjoy getting in the sea and perhaps with a spot of surfing, although I can’t say that I am any good.
