I am a Solicitor in the Group Actions and Product Liability Department. I have particular experience of group litigation on behalf of claimants including cases involving defective medical and non medical products, medical negligence, environmental exposure cases, pharmaceutical claims and abuse claims.
I have been involved in some of the most high-profile group action cases, including:
- The trans-vaginal mesh litigation
- Sorin 3T heater/cooler cases
- Anti-Malarial (Lariam - Mefloquine) group action against the Ministry of Defence
- Various group actions against rogue surgeons Mr Irvine, Mr Paterson and Mr Arunkalaivanan
- Teva Levothyroxine
- Metal on Metal hip litigation
I also investigate singleton cases where there is an allegation of a defective product.
What inspired you to get into law?
It sounds like a cliché but the main reason I became a solicitor was to help people. This is why I decided to specialise in my field of expertise - personal injury. I also really enjoy reading, writing, and critical analysis/problem solving.
I am an organised person and I found studying law really strengthened this aspect of my personality.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Achieving a good settlement outcome for a client who has been seriously injured or affected by the Defendant, often after a lengthy and difficulty negotiation with the Defendant’s representatives.
What do you do away from the office?
I am a keen horse rider, owning two horses and regularly competing in top level eventing competitions. I am a keen badminton player and used to play for Nottingham County. I also enjoy travelling.
"Irwin Mitchell were very professional, thorough and explained every stage of the claims. They kept me updated by post and email so I always knew what was happening. I was made well aware of all cost should my claim be successful and also how long things could possibly take. I couldn't have asked for a better service at a time that was both very distressing and extremely emotional. I highly recommend using Irwin Mitchell if you want to receive a good professional service." - 5* Trustpilot review
"I must say from the first day my solicitor has been very reliable and easy to contact even during the coronavirus pandemic. I felt comfortable explaining my case and it really hasn’t taken long at all to reach a settlement. I am very happy with the settlement agreed.
So a big thank you to Natalie Truman, she was always there for any questions I had and she pushed and pushed to reach a very good settlement. I would definitely recommend." - 5* Trustpilot review
