I specialise exclusively in medical negligence law and have practised in this field since 2009. I have extensive experience in acting for disabled children and adults who have been injured by failures in medical treatment, across a wide range of medical specialisms, including brain, spinal, orthopaedic and bowel injuries, genetics, and infectious diseases including the effects of sepsis. I have a particular interest in obstetrics and fetal medicine, including birth injuries which lead to permanent disabilities such as cerebral palsy and failures to diagnose fetal conditions antenatally.
I act for families in connection with Inquest proceedings where someone has died as a result of failures in medical care, including circumstances in which someone has died from suicide while under psychiatric care.
I am committed to working closely with clients to investigate cases thoroughly in order to maximise the prospects of success and to obtain fair compensation that allows them to rebuild their lives as far as possible, following serious incidents of medical negligence.
I am a member of Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA) and the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
I hold Masters degrees in Medical Law & Ethics and, separately, in Public Health and am an academic researcher in the fields of healthcare law and ethics. I have published numerous articles on medico-legal issues in the legal press, including the APIL journal PI Focus, the Personal Injury Law Journal, the New Law Journal, and LexisNexis.
