31 Oct 2018

Our Clinical Negligence Team has been recognised once again for their dedication and expertise by retaining their Tier 1 status in The Legal 500, an independently researched guide into leading Law Firms.

The Team are proud to be quoted as providing an ‘exceptional level of client service and attention to detail’, being described as ‘hugely experienced’, ‘very hardworking and friendly’ and ‘tough negotiators’.

The Top Tier status reflects the fact that our Clinical Negligence Team is one of the leading firms in the North for claimant Clinical Negligence work.

Clients rate Hay & Kilner for its ‘exceptional level of client service and attention to detail’. The team excels in handling claims concerning cerebral palsy, brain and spinal injuries and cancer.

Clare Thompson (a ‘tough negotiator, who fights for her clients‘) acted for a client in pursuing a claim against an NHS foundation trust and an out-of-hours doctor to recover damages for personal injuries and losses arising from an alleged delay in diagnosing and treating cauda equina syndrome. She also represented a client in claims arising from the reporting of cervical smear samples which failed to address pre-cancerous changes requiring treatment.

‘Hugely experienced’ team head David Bradshaw acted for a client with a history of mental health problems in claims concerning the alleged failure to consider the variability of the claimant’s mental state and assess related risks accordingly while undergoing treatment in hospital.

Other key individuals include the ‘very hardworking and friendly’ Helen Morland, ‘very thorough’ solicitor Lauren Hall and ‘very good’ solicitor Sophie Moss.

Clare Thompson, Partner and Head of the Clinical Negligence Team said “I am very proud that we have retained our Tier 1 status in The Legal 500. This is a reflection of the team’s hard work and dedication to our clients and of our significant expertise in this area of law.”
