Julia Hamilton | Fieldfisher
Skip to main content

I am an experienced clinical negligence lawyer in the Manchester team and have been acting for Claimants in medical negligence cases for over 20 years.  

I specialise in catastrophic injury claims, particularly in children who have suffered the most severe injuries including cerebral palsy, brain tumours and stroke as well as claims arising from brachial plexus or Erb's palsy injuries and in fatal claims.  

I have secured settlements in complex and difficult cases achieving high levels of compensation to meet the ongoing needs of those affected by negligence. I am recognised for my ability to sensitively guide clients through litigation and I am dedicated to securing the best possible outcomes for my clients.  
My cases have been featured in the media including my representation of a family who suffered the devastating loss of a mother of 5 young children to sepsis as a result of a delay in diagnosis which was covered by the national press and ITV news.  

Recent cases include settlement of a complex cerebral palsy claim in a baby with a umbilical cord haemangioma,  judgment entered for a child who has suffered the most severe form of brachial plexus injury at delivery, judgment for a child who suffered injury due to delay in diagnosis of a pilocytic astrocytoma and an admission of liability for a family who lost their mother and daughter arising from a failure to diagnose sepsis.

I am a Clinical Negligence Specialist Panel member of both the Law Society and the Association of Victims of Medical Accidents (AvMA) and a member of APIL.
