I have dedicated myself to the practice of medical negligence litigation for very personal reasons.  I suffered a birth injury which left me with a permanent disability known as Erb’s palsy or brachial plexus palsy.   My personal journey fuels my commitment to ensuring that others do not endure the same hardships caused by negligence.  I understand all too well the importance of fighting for answers and accountability when something has gone wrong during hospital treatment.

I also understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll that medical negligence can take on individuals and families, and strive to secure fair compensation for clients.  I have acted in high-value cases of cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy and other birth injuries; surgical errors and negligence; GP negligence and delayed cancer diagnosis to name only a few examples of the cases I have successfully concluded at trial and at settlement.

I am a frequent speaker at conferences on medical negligence and inquests.  My cases are regularly reported in the national and regional media, and I am regularly asked to comment on key legal issues in this sector.

In addition to my legal practice, I am actively involved in raising awareness about medical negligence issues and advocating for improvements in healthcare practices. I believe in fostering a safer and more accountable healthcare system for all.

Contact me today to discuss your case and take the first step toward obtaining the accountability, compensation and closure you deserve.

What others say…

I would like to express my enormous gratitude for all the time and effort Johan dedicated to ensuring my late dad received the justice he so rightly deserved. During what proved to be an extensive, lengthy case Johan never lost commitment or focus and kept us informed every step of the way. He made us feel heard and handled our case with enormous empathy and compassion. Johan not only represented us as a family to achieve a positive outcome for this case, he also restored my faith in people when it was at its lowest. Thank you Johan!
