Penningtons Manches Cooper's clinical negligence team delivers an 'impeccable level of service within excellent response times'. Brain and birth injuries, as well as amputation, oncological, sepsis, cauda equina and orthopaedic claims, are some of the multi-track areas which are handled on a national and cross-border level, while the team also engages in lower-value cosmetic surgery and product liability matters. A highlight from 2017 was Alison Appelboam-Meadows' settlement of a matter in which the claimant suffered a placental abruption and lost her baby following the negligent treatment of her unusual CTG tracing results. The 'knowledgeable, professional and caring' practice co-lead Philippa Luscombe and associate Emma Beeson are recommended. Associate director Alison Johnson heads the maternal and gynaecological injuries team.
