I act solely for clients who have suffered harm due to clinical negligence and their families. My clients include adults, children and the personal representatives of the Estates of deceased patients.
Prior to becoming a solicitor I worked in the NHS for several years as a staff nurse on a vascular surgery ward and in an Intensive Care Unit. My clinical experience has equipped me with a sound understanding of medical terminology and procedures which means I can quickly identifying the key issues to be addressed when investigating cases.
I manage cases arising from a wide variety of NHS and private medical care including delayed diagnosis of cancer, orthopaedic surgery, general surgery, ophthalmic treatments, failures to diagnose by GPs and injuries to mothers and children occurring during labour.
Some of the cases I’ve worked on include:
- A settlement of over £300,000 arising from the negligent management of a wrist fracture resulting in the claimant having to leave his career in the armed forces.
- A six-figure settlement due to nerve damage during a biopsy resulting in weakness in the claimant’s dominant arm.
- Failure to diagnose appendicitis resulting in admission to intensive care and several further surgical procedures.
‘From the moment you took on my case I have been fully involved, informed and everything explained. You have understood my emotions and encouraged me along the way – basically done more than I ever could have imagined. Thank you.’ – A medical negligence client
Outside of work I enjoy playing tennis, going to the gym, playing the guitar and riding my Triumph motorcycle.
