I am an Associate Solicitor and I have achieved accredited status as a Senior Litigator of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. I am passionate about securing compensation and rehabilitation for claimants who have suffered life-changing injuries because of the negligence of others.
I assist Caroline Flashman to help clients who have suffered brain injuries. I also have my own case load dealing with both personal injury and clinical negligence cases, helping individuals who have suffered complex orthopaedic or neurological injuries following an accident that wasn’t their fault or because a medical practitioner has breached their duty of care, for example, where there has been a delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis, inappropriate treatment or surgical errors.
