Medical Negligence

Associate

"When medical treatment goes wrong, patients and their families need proper legal representation, but also support and guidance"

Telephone icon 03303 116765 Email icon Email me

I specialise in clinical negligence claims, and my previous experience encompasses a wide range of clinical negligence and personal injury work.

I handle a varied caseload of clinical negligence claims and represent patients and their families in claims against Hospital Trusts and GPs, involving delays in diagnosis of cancer, amputation, eye surgery, fatal accidents and claims involving psychiatric injuries for victims who have witnessed traumatic events.

I have experience of representing families at inquests and recognise the importance of not only providing proper legal representation, but also support and guidance during what is often a distressing experience.

Career Highlights

  • Assisted in the preparation of key legal documents for the settlement of a multi-million pound case involving negligently performed heart surgery.
  • Sucessfully secured damages for a number of patients affected by the Musgrove Park Hospital Vanguard cataract outsourcing scandal.
  • I am a member of the Devon & Exeter Medico-Legal Association (DEMLA).
  • I work closely with the Exeter Diabetes Group, which is part of Diabates UK.
