Rebecca Brown

Associate Solicitor
  • 0800 056 4110


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.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

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. 

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

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.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I enjoy travelling, cooking and cycling.
