I’m a solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in Southampton.
I run a mixed medical negligence case load and have experience in dealing with cases concerning:
I've previously acted for a number of clients who had undergone incorrect treatment for breast cancer and had unnecessary breast surgery.
I studied law at University of Exeter and went on to complete my Legal Practice Course in Guildford. I qualified as a solicitor in 2010.
I’m also a Trustee and Director at Headway Portsmouth and South East Hampshire.
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.
Dan spoke with great passion about his work in breaking down barriers as to how children with disabilities are portrayed.
“Irwin Mitchell is proud to support Dan in helping to achieve his goal of seeing the Department of Ability comic being published.”
Irwin Mitchell in Southampton is passionate about supporting and helping the local community in whichever way we can.
“We are really looking forward to welcoming Dan on the evening to help promote his fantastic comic and to highlight the great work he does campaigning for the disabled community."
“This report is shocking and unacceptable. The poor care has been going on for far too long and in certain situations patient safety is clearly at risk. The NHS is under immense pressure from various issues including funding, staffing and an ageing population but this doesn’t excuse staff not following guidelines for safe care.
“We see all too often the impact of medical negligence on patients and their families, which can be devastating and life-changing. It’s important that these issues are addressed as soon as possible to prevent further suffering to current patients and to prevent future people admitted from harm. Patient safety should be the number one priority.”
“Sepsis is a devastating condition which affects 150,000 people every year in the UK, resulting in 44,000 deaths. This number of people dying or, like Michael, suffering life-changing injuries from sepsis in the UK is extremely troubling as the condition can be treated by a course of antibiotics if diagnosed quickly.
“We have seen numerous cases where the symptoms of sepsis have not been spotted or where patients have not been started on treatment soon enough. This has a devastating impact on them, and for the family and friends of those who lose their lives as a result.
“It’s Michael’s case that not diagnosing sepsis early enough changed his life forever and although nothing can turn back the clock, a fair settlement will mean he will be able to fund suitable prosthetics throughout his life and the on-going rehabilitation he requires.
“Through our close work with The UK Sepsis Trust we have seen the urgent need to promote the signs of sepsis and provide early care in the UK."
