I lead the Clinical Negligence team of Head Injury UK (a subdivision of Higgs & Sons specialising in head injuries) and for the last 10 years have concentrated on helping people who have suffered medical negligence.
Fighting for parents whose children have suffered cerebral palsy at birth is complex and challenging however I find it rewarding both professionally and personally, to see how I can make a difference to the children and their families.
Currently I’m working on a case of a brain injury following a delayed diagnosis of meningitis, leading to epilepsy and hydrocephalus, nerve palsy and global development delay. I have obtained a liability admission and a significant interim payment of £250,000 whilst getting further expert evidence. I’m also arranging the Court to appoint a colleague as a Deputy, to oversee my client’s financial affairs.
A member of the Law Society’s specialist Clinical Negligence panel, I am also recognised as a leading medical negligence solicitor by a well-known legal directory.
