Mike Bird

Medical Negligence


“I come to work to make a difference to the lives of injured claimants and their families. That’s at the heart of what I do and why I do it.”

I’m a specialist and highly experienced serious injury lawyer. I only act for injured people or their loved ones and have done 30 years.

I am also an Assistant Coroner in the South West and in the East Midlands, investigating unnatural deaths and conducting inquests.

I mainly represent people and families whose lives have been seriously disrupted by significant injury to the brain, spine, eyes or major body systems. I also support families where a loved one has died through negligence.

I also represent groups of claimants, for example, I acted for over 200 women injured by disgraced Obstetrician and Gynaecologist Rob Jones at Royal Cornwall Hospitals 1991-2012.
