I am a solicitor in the medical negligence team at Irwin Mitchell's Manchester office. I joined the firm as a trainee in August 2016 and qualified into the department in March 2018.
I currently handle a variety of claims ranging from delayed cancer diagnoses to dental negligence, as well as helping with higher-value claims. I'm a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
When growing up, I became interested in the power of the law to regulate, protect and make change. I really enjoyed studying a wide variety of legal modules at university and was intent on using my legal knowledge to help and protect people who find themselves in vulnerable positions.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I find great reward in helping individuals and their families at a time when their lives have been changed as a result of negligent medical treatment without any warning.
People often come to Irwin Mitchell in very sad circumstances and are still coming to terms with the fact that they have received negligent medical treatment. Although compensation can't change the past, securing a settlement for someone can remove financial worry at a time in their lives when they have so many other things to worry about.
What Do You Like About Working For Irwin Mitchell?
I am very proud to work at the leading law firm for medical negligence, meaning I am surrounded by some of the best solicitors in the business who I can work with and continue to learn from.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
Away from the office I enjoy keeping fit, whether that be captaining the Irwin Mitchell Manchester netball team or entering a 10k in or around Manchester. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends.

"My husband and I were represented by Madeleine Langmead during a recent claim for medical negligence. From the very beginning of a long process Madeleine has been absolutely outstanding in her approach. She has been open and honest with us explaining the steps thoroughly throughout ensuring we had a good understanding of the processes and what to expect.
She has given us support and demonstrated compassion during extremely different discussions and conversations. She never failed to go above and beyond ensuring we received the best outcome. We cannot thank her enough for finally giving us the answers we sought. We would highly recommend Madeleine to anyone who is thinking about using Irwin Mitchell as their representatives, she truly is amazing!" - 5* Trustpilot review
