I specialise in representing healthcare providers in clinical negligence litigation and at inquests, having spent 8 years in private practice before joining Bevan Brittan in 2017. I have acted for NHS Trusts, GPs, nurses, doctors in private practice, private clinics and optometrists; at the instruction of NHS Resolution, two other major medical defence organisations and insurers.
I am experienced in a broad range of claims including:
- Fatality claims, high value claims involving children, amputees and other catastrophically injured claimants and lower value yet complex claims;
- Claims involving multiple defendants, jointly insured defendants, multiple experts of various specialisms (on liability and quantum), complex and unusual procedural issues, litigants in person;
- Claims of alleged negligence in general surgery, orthopaedics, obstetrics, emergency medicine, cardiology, urology, paediatrics and general practice.
I have acted for healthcare providers (NHS and private) at inquests in which various areas of medical treatment have been scrutinised; including: emergency medicine, anaesthesia, respiratory medicine, oncology, cardiology, vascular surgery, gastroenterology, urology, geriatric medicine and psychiatry.
