I am a claimant clinical negligence lawyer in the Manchester medical negligence team, practising across a broad spectrum of claims, focusing on birth injury, brain injury, surgical negligence, delay in diagnosis, sepsis, and limb loss.
I am recognised in Legal 500 as 'business-like and a strong negotiator' with 'great strategic insight and always ready to push an apparently closed door in the pursuit of a point'. Chambers describes me as 'excellent, very empathetic but a tough negotiator'.
I am known for my determination to achieve the best outcome for my clients. Most of their cases concern treatment during pregnancy and delivery leading to birth injury to mother and child, failure to diagnose infection, spinal cord injury, brain injury and negligence following complex surgery.
I have a strong track record of securing substantial awards for my clients. I work with experts, case managers and therapists to recover funding for specialist care, accommodation and treatment for those inured, improving their quality of life and providing the comfort of long-term financial security.
I have practised as a solicitor for 25 years and have been a Member of the Law Society's Clinical Negligence Accreditation Panel since 2005. I am a Member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and Senior Associate Member of the Royal Society of Medicine.
