Cost consequences for a negligent expert
My speciality is defendant clinical negligence and I work predominately for NHS clients and private insurance clients. My work involves advising on a range of high value and complex clinical negligence claims including high value birth injuries, adult brain injuries, spinal injuries, Fatal Accidents Act claims, amputation, cauda equina, MRSA, oncology, orthopaedic, Erb’s palsy and wrongful birth claims. An important aspect of my work is ensuring that clinicians are supported during the claims process and ensuring that claims are dealt with proportionately and quickly. I also work within the private healthcare market on behalf of doctors and clinics. I worked in the Legal department at what was then Birmingham Heartlands Hospital so I understand first hand the pressures faced by Trust legal teams.
