Medical Negligence




Tom is a Partner in the Medical Negligence and Child Abuse team in Birmingham. He has worked for Irwin Mitchell since 2010 when he started as a trainee.

He grew up in the West Midlands and studied law at Cardiff University before completing his Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in Birmingham.

He acts for clients in medical negligence cases against NHS Trusts, private practitioners and general practitioners (GPs). He runs his own varied case load which includes brain injuries, injuries arising from birth, fatalities, failures to diagnose serious conditions, negligent orthopaedic treatment/surgery, and negligent urological treatment/surgery.

He specialises in cases where suicide and injuries arising from attempted suicide could have been avoided with the appropriate care from mental health professionals. Tom is also able to help families through the Inquest process at the Coroner’s Court.

In addition to medical negligence cases, he also deals with cases where individuals have suffered sexual, physical and emotional abuse by those in positions of authority. For example, he runs cases against local authorities for abuse by teachers, cases against religious institutions for abuse by religious leaders, and abuse by other people in positions of authorities such as foster carers, sports coaches, social workers, and clinicians.
