Bernadette McGhie

Medical Negligence

Executive Director

"My background as a general and paediatric nurse provides me with a great advantage when acting for claimants in medical litigation"

Telephone icon 03303 116759 Email icon Email me

I specialise in brain injuries, including birth-related neurological damage and maternal injury.
Prior to training as a solicitor, I qualified as a general and paediatric nurse and enjoyed a very successful clinical career for many years.  I am also a member of national charity Baby Lifeline’s multi-professional advisory panel (MPAP). I also have a special interest in cases involving the prescription of Sodium Valproate in pregnancy resulting in foetal abnormalities.

Career Highlights

  • Led the investigations to achieve a substantial settlement on liability for a client who suffered a brain injury during his birth, resulting in cerebral palsy.
  • Took on a case from another firm of solicitors and successfully settled the matter out of court for a multi-million pound sum, which will allow my brain-injured client to live a more independent life
  • I conduct a busy caseload, including a wide range of high-value birth injury and maternal damage claims.
