I am an Associate Solicitor in the Medical Negligence Team in Southampton. I've specialised in representing clients who have suffered serious injury as a result of clinical negligence since qualifying as a Solicitor.
I have a particular interest in delay in diagnosis of cancer cases and maximum severity claims arising from injuries to children during childbirth and in the neonatal period. I've represented a number of clients who had undergone incorrect treatment for breast cancer and had unnecessary breast surgery.
I also have expertise in cases concerning sepsis, amputations, brain and spinal injuries and surgical negligence leading to serious bowel and bladder injuries.
Obtaining acknowledgement for my client that something has gone wrong with their medical treatment. This can be in the form of an apology or compensation. It is particularly rewarding to achieve compensation for a client which allows them to rebuild their lives and often get the rehabilitation or treatment they need in the future.
I am proud to work for a firm that places its focus on the client and their rehabilitation. I also like the fact that at Irwin Mitchell we are able to offer clients the complete package of services they may need throughout their claim, such as help with their benefits, Wills, probate and Court of Protection matters.
I enjoy travelling, cooking and cycling.
Rebecca Brown is “competent and compassionate’ – Legal 500 2017
“From the start of my case until the finish my solicitor Rebecca Brown went above and beyond. My case I felt was very sensitive to me but I was treated with a great amount of compassion and care.” – Lauren, Client
“Rebecca handled my wife's negligence claim for breast cancer misdiagnosis with professionalism and compassion. We are very pleased with the outcome and were impressed by the way that expert reports were gathered in support of our case. Rebecca explained the possible legal outcomes and financial pros and cons as the evidence gathering and documentation continued.”– Mr H, Client
“It should go without saying that patient safety should be central when someone is in the care of a hospital.
“Mistakes do happen but it is important when they do, or if there is concern about the standard of patient care, that families can rely on hospital management (in the first instance) to carry out an open and transparent investigation, and be honest where error have been made.
“It is also of utmost importance that staff concerns are taken seriously and acted upon, as this often will provide opportunity for early resolution of issues and prevention of future harm. It is disappointing that the concerns of nursing staff at Gosport War Memorial Hospital as early as 1991 was not acted upon.
“The families here were sadly failed by all of the organisations that they should have been able to rely on (GMC, NMC, CPS etc) which is completely unacceptable.
“Since the Mid Staffordshire enquiry in 2009 and the introduction of the duty of candour, hospital investigations in complaints and instance of poor care have improved, which is of benefit to patients and their families. However, there is still work to be done.
“There has been much said in the media about the costs of clinical negligence claims and best way to keep these costs down is to improve patient safety and, when there has been failings, for the hospital to take this seriously and ensure there is thorough investigation as soon as they become aware of the incident/concerns raised. It is distressing that the families of the patients here have had to wait almost 20 years for a proper investigation to have occurred.”
