I specialise in pursuing clinical negligence claims on behalf of claimants against NHS Trusts, GPs and other private healthcare providers. I provide specialist advice on a wide range of issues including obstetric, gynaecological and surgical injuries. I am experienced in bringing claims as a result of birth injury and I have particular interest in claims involving infertility, IVF and surrogacy costs. I have also been involved with a large group action consisting of over 200 women against Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust.

Career Highlights

  • Achieving admissions of liability and securing significant compensation for a client who is a minor who suffered severe orthopaedic injuries including amputation as a result of a delay in diagnosing meningitis. These payments have assisted the family in obtaining necessary treatment, adaptations to the property and additional care costs.
  • Secured compensation in excess of £100,000 for a client who was rendered infertile by hospital negligence. This included successfully recovering compensation to enable the couple to undergo IVF and surrogacy.
