Follow Patricia Wakeford on:

I have significant experience of advising clients on maternal and birth injuries. My expertise includes spinal injuries, head injuries, PTSD, fatal accidents, compartment syndrome, delay in diagnosis of cancer, hip dysplasia, brain abscess leading to loss of peripheral vision and epilepsy.

I have a particular focus in maternal and birth injuries due to my midwifery background. I am recognised as a rising star and lawyer to watch in Chambers and Legal500.
