Having trained at Shoosmiths Jill qualified as a solicitor in September 2003 and is now in the clinical negligence department.
Jill works on a wide range of diverse cases across clinical negligence, including cases arising from late diagnosis, birth injuries affecting mothers and children and failures in elder care.
Jill has a particular interest in late diagnosis, surgical error and issues around disclosure of medical error.
- the agreement of what we believe is the highest value periodical payments order ever made for a brain injured child;
- an admission of liability in a surgical error claim brought 9 years out of time - that had been turned down by previous solicitors acting under a legal expense insurance policy;
