Kate Rohde | Fieldfisher
Skip to main content

I specialise in catastrophic and fatal injury claims and have many years' experience securing the highest possible, sometimes ground-breaking awards for those whose lives are devastated by medical negligence.

My team and I deal with all aspects of serious injury, but predominantly brain injury, birth injury, spinal injury, cerebral palsy and death of a loved one. I am regularly called upon to advise amid highly distressing circumstances.

We pride ourselves on offering sensitively and respect to all our clients and fighting for just settlement in every case to help fund aids, equipment, rehabilitation and medical care. Our aim is to provide the circumstances for those injured and their families to live their best possible lives.

My experience means I can instruct the best medical experts for each case.

I also lobby for the medical profession to be well-informed about the legal process. I work with medical organisations to deliver training and ensure the law and specific cases are used to learn lessons and improve patient safety.
