Angie MaxwellConsultant Solicitor
My applied clinical background and experience in assisting vulnerable clients lends a significant advantage as a clinical negligence litigator, and I am known for my thorough, efficient and compassionate approach
I am a Legal Director in the Clinical Negligence team, and I specialise in spinal injury cases, particularly complex claims relating to cauda equina syndrome.
Prior to undertaking my law degree and Legal Practice Course, I was a Chartered Senior Physiotherapist working in the NHS. My particular interest lay in neurology, but I have worked in all areas of NHS physiotherapy, including teaching and training other members of staff.
- Succeeding in a cauda equina syndrome claim where the client’s existing solicitors had aimed to settle for an inadequate sum; I turned the case around, achieving a higher sum to accommodate my client’s complex, on-going care needs
- Acting for a claimant on a negligent knee injury case, and successfully settling for substantial damages
- Specialising in delayed diagnosis of breast and cervical cancer, frequently succeeding in claims where previous firms of solicitors had been unable or unwilling to progress the case
I am on the panel for Action against Medical Accidents, and a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and the Devon and Exeter Medico-Legal Association.
