Medical Negligence Solicitors

I am passionate about helping those who have suffered from Medical Negligence. I qualified as a solicitor in 1998 but have been working within the law since 1989. I started out dealing with litigation including personal injury. Not long into my career I became involved in a Clinical Negligence case and knew immediately that I wanted to solely concentrate on Clinical/Medical Negligence and began to develop this area. I moved to Ben Hoare Bell LLP in 2006 as a Medical Negligence Specialist. I joined a thoroughly professional team of medical negligence specialists dealing with cases across the field on behalf of Claimants who have suffered as a result of poor care. I became head of the department in 2011.

I represent people who have been the victim of Clinical or Medical Negligence in all areas of healthcare including Hospitals and General Practitioners.

I have dealt with many cases of the utmost severity involving injuries at birth resulting in cerebral palsy in addition to other brain injury cases. I have acted in many delay in cancer diagnosis cases, some of which involve the tragic loss of life. I act in cases covering all medical specialties and so recover a range of compensation on behalf of injured people from some minor injuries to cases running into the millions of pounds.

I represent families at inquests and have conducted group litigation on behalf of victims of medical device or product failures.

I am accredited by The Law Society as a specialist in this field.. We have access to many leading medical experts to assist in providing first class advice on the medical issues involved in the cases we handle.

We offer an initial free assessment of any case so if you believe you may have a claim for Medical Negligence please do give me a call or contact any member of our approachable team to discuss your case. We will run through the events with you in a supportive and professional manner and advise you of all your options so you have all the information you need at the outset. You can reach us on 0191 5653112.

I am the Client Care Partner at Ben Hoare Bell LLP and the Compliance Officer for Legal Practice (COLP).
