I am a solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in Sheffield. I handle a wide variety of medical negligence cases, including cases relating to orthopaedic injuries, delays in diagnosis of cancer, spinal injuries and urological injuries.
I have a specific interest in cases which relate to care provided to women during pregnancy and labour. I represent women who have suffered stillbirths and wrongful births as a result of medical negligence. My experience in this area ensures that I can offer support to my clients as their legal case progresses, and provide the reassurance needed at a difficult time in their lives.
I qualified as a solicitor in 2018.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I've always been interested in the law and remember questioning why things are the way they are from a young age. I've always actively volunteered for causes and charities, and working in this area of law has allowed me to combine my passions for helping others and progressing in a challenging career. I also find the medical world very interesting so I enjoy learning more about it through my work.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Being able to make a difference to people’s lives is extremely rewarding. I'm humbled every day by the strength of our clients who have been through the toughest of times. We try to give clients support and a helping hand, so that they can access rehabilitation to get back on track with their lives. Being able to offer this human touch is so important to me.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
I am tremendously fortunate to work in a law firm filled with leaders within the field of medical negligence. Working with others who have as much passion as I do inspires me to be the very best I can be.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I am a passionate rock climber and I am lucky to live in Sheffield, with the Peak District on my door step. In my spare time, I love travelling around the UK and abroad to find even more rocks to climb! I find happiness in the outdoors and also enjoy running, yoga and hiking.
"Rebecca came to our home for the initial meeting and every time we needed her after then she was always there for us be it a phone call or email. She was so friendly, compassionate and understanding when we were sometimes emotional and I feel she really cared about what we were going through. She settled our claim out of court as to not drag things on for potentially another year." - 5* Trustpilot review
"The legal process has been challenging and emotional. There aren’t words to give an adequate account of what we have been through. Tania & Rebecca have represented our interests with fidelity & staunch determination to achieve a just outcome. They did so with compassionate humanity & much appreciated humour." - 5* Trustpilot review
