Solicitor joins nationally respected team to continue fighting for victims

21st Jun

She has joined Williamsons Solicitors following a career that commenced in 2009 in personal injury but changed to the more specialist area of medical negligence when qualifying in 2015.
“I have a particular interest in brain injuries caused at birth and fighting for the families involved,” she said. “And now, as mother of a young child myself, their plight resonates even more with me.
“These tragic cases, which can result in the child needing round-the-clock care, are often entirely avoidable.
“Families can be left with enormous pressure both practically and financially, so it is only right that they receive appropriate compensation so that they can access all the vital support they need, whether that is in respect of treatment for the child, respite care or specially adapted accommodation.”
In addition to brain injuries at birth, Sarah has worked on a wide range of clinical negligence cases, including delayed diagnosis of cancer and avoidable amputations, and has experience of bringing claims to trial at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.
She joins the nationally respected clinical negligence team at Williamsons and says she is excited to continue expanding her experience and knowledge.
“It’s a very close-knit department with great support from the highly-regarded, experienced solicitors and the paralegals. We all work with the same determination and focus on putting our clients first. I’m very pleased to be working alongside such consummate professionals.”
Head of department Nick Gray said: “Our clinical negligence team is stronger than ever. This highly specialist area of law requires both diligence and an empathetic approach. Sarah is a very good fit and we are pleased that she has joined us.”
Williamsons Solicitors clinical negligence team is recognised by top industry bodies including Action Against Medical Accidents (AvMA) and The Law Society’s clinical negligence accreditation scheme.
