Katherine specialises in claims involving birth injuries resulting in stillbirth, neonatal death and serious disability, and has expertise in secondary victim claims resulting from psychiatric injuries as a result of witnessing a horrific event.

She also has a particular interest in neurology and neurosurgical claims resulting in hydrocephalus and neural tube defects, as her son had a brain haemorrhage at birth causing hydrocephalus and now has a VP shunt and cerebral palsy.

Before qualifying as a solicitor, Katherine worked in the NHS as the lead for Information Governance where she managed data protection, Freedom of Information and records management.

She is a keen supporter of Hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida charity Shine, who have supported her since her son’s diagnosis.

Recent cases of note:

Assisting to obtain a settlement of £20 million for a brain injured client.

Settling a number of claims for parents of stillborn children, including fathers who suffered a psychiatric injury after witnessing their child’s death during labour.
