What's my role?

I represent clients who have sustained serious and complex injuries as a result of an accident or substandard medical treatment. I secure compensation for them in order to improve their quality of life following such life changing events.

I also act for clients or family members of those who have developed asbestos related illnesses such as mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis and guide them and their families through what is often a very difficult and distressing time for them.

My experience

I qualified as a solicitor in 2011 and joined Coffin Mew in August 2016. Over the years, I have gained a broad experience of handling serious and complex personal injury and clinical negligence claims including fatal claims.

I have successfully negotiated and settled difficult cases including cases that involved complex questions of breach of duty and causation. Some types of the cases that I have dealt with include:

  • A claim against a hospital for their failure to administer prophylaxis anti-coagulation following a total hip replacement resulting in two blood clots, a large haematoma and femoral nerve palsy, severely restricting my client’s mobility and independence.
  • Severe leg and foot injury following a motorcycle accident.
  • Achieving a settlement of £620,000 for the family of a 58-year-old man who was exposed to asbestos during the course of his employment many years ago and who sadly died as a result of mesothelioma.
  • Multiple other six-figure awards for people exposed to asbestos.
