Anthony Collins Solicitors LLP’s team represented a client who sustained a head injury but was not given a CT scan, despite the claimant’s family reporting abnormal behaviour to the health authorities. The client subsequently suffered a haemorrhage. A team led by Rankeshwar Batta, who heads the department, negotiated a six-figure settlement.

Lisa Jordan heads the practice at Irwin Mitchell, where a team including Luke Daniels successfully represented a claimant born with cerebral palsy resulting from a premature birth due to an incorrectly administered C-section.

Kay Kelly, who heads the department at Lanyon Bowdler, led a team that acted for a young woman who developed permanent visual impairment as a result of a misdiagnosis and delay in the treatment of the condition. The claimant received a seven-figure settlement.

Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ team, which is headed by Inez Brown, grew through the addition of five new members. A notable engagement was obtaining a high-value settlement on behalf of a client who was misdiagnosed and given a decade of unnecessary treatment. Lead partner on this case was Ally Taft.

Higgs & Sons’ Sue Allen represented a young girl who developed cerebral palsy due to foetal distress during her birth, achieving a seven-figure compensation claim for the client. Liz Hickman heads the team.

The team at Shoosmiths LLP is headed by Phil Barnes and also includes Nick Tubb, who specialises in brain and spinal cord injury cases. Tubb assisted a client in winning a significant sum from a hospital that delayed a diagnosis, which led to a life-changing condition.

The key contact at Thompsons Solicitors LLP is Linda Millband, who recently settled a case of a woman who died of breast cancer in which the caregiver failed to diagnose during the early stages of the illness.

Brethertons LLP’s team, which is led by Richard Hopkin, specialises in head, brain and spinal cord injuries. Jonathan Rees is recommended. Nicola Heales moved to Blaser Mills, and Richard Pell retired.

Sydney Mitchell LLP acted for the relatives of a man who underwent surgery to remove cancer and subsequently died in hospital due to a failure to administer essential medication. The resulting compensation was a six-figure sum. Mike Sutton heads the team.

Nicola Lewis, who heads the department at Waldrons Solicitors, led a team in a successful claim against an NHS trust for issues that were caused by surgery performed by a rogue surgeon.

Jeanette Whyman’s team at Wright Hassall LLP acts in obstetric, gynaecological, neurological and orthopaedic cases. A recent highlight was helping a client to win a five-figure settlement for dental negligence.
