The NHS does a tremendous job, but occasionally mistakes are made that leave patients with significant, life-changing injures and they fully deserve to be adequately compensated.
I’m here to advise, support and help clients return to a life which is as close as possible to how it would have been before the negligent treatment happened.
Get to Know Sarah
Sarah handles a wide range of clinical negligence claims including delays in diagnosing and treating cancer, orthopaedic errors, GP negligence, and surgical errors. She is also experienced in supporting clients who have needed amputations due to medical negligence.
Sarah has practised in clinical negligence ever since qualifying in 2016 and she supports clients who have suffered severe psychological injuries due to the impact of mistakes made in their treatment.
Every case which results in a successful settlement is significant for the people I represent, but one in which a patient died prematurely because of a delay in diagnosing and treating their cancer stands out for me.
The case settled for £85,000, but the money was not the important aspect as the family could not get their loved one back. Those years together were taken from them. The legal case did highlight life-costing errors and it is hoped similar mistakes will be avoided by those involved in the future.
I have also represented two families in cases where quite elderly patients have suffered falls in hospital which should have been avoided by having proper care plans in place. In one of the cases it was admitted that the patient’s fall had contributed to their death two weeks later of sepsis, whilst in the other case the patient suffered a break to their when falling shortly after hip replacement surgery.
I also represented a lady who had to have a leg amputated after a basic surgical error and was very pleased to be able to secure her a substantial damages settlement.
