Specialist in clinical negligence and personal injury.
I am currently on maternity leave.
I am a clinical negligence and personal injury Solicitor at Anthony Collins Solicitors. I qualified in September 2012, after completing my training contract within the firm undertaking seats in construction, corporate litigation, clinical negligence and personal injury and personal planning and management. Prior to this, I worked as a legal assistant in the family department specialising in representing parents in care proceedings.
I work as part of a team and with the head of the department, Rankeshwar Batta, on the most complex, maximum severity cases and work with him partnering organisations who support individuals that have a long term injury e.g. Child Brain Injury Trust. I also have sole responsibility for all aspects of clinical negligence and personal injury claims, with a wide range of cases from low-high value claims.
I work as part of the clinical negligence and personal injury team on a wide variety of cases acting on behalf of adults, children and protected parties. I am an AVMA helpline volunteer, which provides invaluable free guidance and support to victims of medical accidents.
My experience includes working as part of the legal team in a lengthy trial in a birth injury case, which is now proceeding to the Court of Appeal; the recent settlement of a high value orthopaedic injury case and the multi-million pound settlement of a cerebral palsy birth injury case. I have also successfully settled the issue of liability on a number of road traffic accidents and accidents at work with the cases now proceeding in court to consider the valuation of the claim.
