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 maximize the prospects of success and to ensure that compensation reflects, as far as possible, the impact of medical negligence on my clients' lives.
I have previously obtained Masters degrees in Medical Law & Ethics and, separately, in Public Health. I have published numerous articles on medico-legal issues in the legal press and I am the author of the Wrongful Birth topic on Westlaw Insight.
