I have a client focused compassionate approach which means I am especially adept at dealing with claims of a sensitive nature.
I am an Associate Solicitor in the Clinical Negligence team. I undertake a broad range of clinical negligence matters, with particular expertise in gynaecology, including maternal injury during childbirth and negligent injuries during routine gynaecology procedures. I also represents claimants in orthopaedic and cosmetic surgery claims.
I have over 8 years’ experience leading cases which involve obstetric/gynaecological injuries including those arising from the controversial TVT/TOT mesh, surgical error (including orthopaedic and urological surgery) delays in diagnosis, nursing care failures (including pressure sore injury), failed cosmetic surgery and claims arising following the death of a loved one.
