Clinical Negligence

Tom is experienced in a variety of clinical negligence matters, including claims arising from dental, hospital and physiotherapy treatment. Instructions have included requests to draft pre-action correspondence under the protocol, as well as conduct of matters once issued.

Tom’s PI practice has involved matters whereby cosmetic surgery is in issue (either in terms of injury undermining such previous surgery or where cosmetic surgery is recommended in the future) and so he is well placed to deal with clinical negligence claims arising in the cosmetic field.

In 2018 Tom was instructed as a junior in an on-going multi-million pound child brain injury case. The claim arises from a negligent failure to respond to hypoglycaemia shortly after birth and is presently listed for trial in 2019.

Examples of recent cases include:

  • Negligent removal of wisdom teeth
  • Bowel injury sustained during an appendectomy
  • Failure to adequately treat broken fingers at a fracture clinic
  • Failure by a physiotherapist to refer a patient for further treatment following scan results in respect of a back injury, thus delaying remedial surgery
  • Haemophiliac suffering extensive bleed during surgery due to alleged failure to adequately plan the operation
  • Allegedly negligent conduct of a caesarean section
  • Failure to refer patient for further expert opinion in respect of an ankle injury
  • Junior in ongoing multi-million pound child brain injury case.
