Why do I like my job? The fascination of medicine and the amazing way that no two cases are ever the same. Although I cannot give someone back their health or their loved one, I can help make their lives better through care and therapy or through the knowledge that the mistake that affected them is unlikely to be repeated now it has been exposed. I help give my clients a voice they may have felt would go unheard, and I get them answers they may not have had without bringing a claim. Peace of mind is just as valuable as any amount of compensation and should not be underestimated.

1 June 2016

As a clinical negligence solicitor I am often asked to investigate and bring claims for people who have developed pressure sores. These have often occurred in hospital but are then treated in the community. They can be disproportionately painful from the small blister or sore they may start with as they get worse or become infected. Unfortunately, there have also been a lot of cases reported in the media recently relating to pressure sores developed by the elderly whilst being looked after in care homes and nursing homes.
