I qualified as a Solicitor in 2003 and joined Pictons in May 2009. I am a specialist solicitor with a broad range of experience in clinical negligence claims. Before training as a lawyer, I practised as a nurse and midwife and have invaluable insight into the workings of the health service.
As negligence claims are usually complex and of a sensitive nature, I strive to help my client through the whole process and resolve the claim in a prompt and sympathetic manner.
I have a specialist interest in fatal accidents, birth injury, gynaecological and obstetrics injuries and injuries caused by delay in diagnosing cancer. I regularly write articles and provide comments on topics of general medico-legal interest and am a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
In the past 12 months, I have achieved over half a million pound of damages for claimants and their family. My settled cases include:
£106,000 damages in a perineal trauma case concerning the failure to detect and repair the 3rd degree tear after childbirth.
£100,000 compensation for a fatal accident claim. The deceased’s femoral artery was perforated at an angioplasty but the massive bleeding and deterioration of his condition were not detected. He died of a heart attack.
£68,000 for a disabled pensioner who fell from hospital bed and injured her shoulder during an epileptic fit. The hospital doctor forgot to put the cot side up after taking blood from her.
£83,000 and £38,000 for 2 claimants who had negligent foot surgery carried out by a team of foreign doctors.
£27,000 for a woman whose vagina was sutured too tightly following a vaginal repair operation.
£18,000 for a woman who was wrongly diagnosed as having invasive breast cancer. She underwent a local excision and a number of investigations only to be told that she did not have cancer months later.
£5,000 for a little boy who sustained a fracture in the leg during childbirth and a similar sum for another child for a delay in treating talipes.

I enjoy sports and travelling. My favourite places are the Lake District, the Mediterranean and Norway. The latter was bitterly cold when I last visited but the breathtaking scenery and its tranquillity are sufficient to compensate for the cold temperature.
