Cases:

O v Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust: Delayed diagnosis and treatment of abdominal obstruction several years after an otherwise successful gastric bypass, effectively returning the Claimant to morbid obesity, the prospect of early retirement and other co-morbidities.

W (deceased) v L & M & Walsall NHS Trust: Late diagnosis of a chronic vascular disease, resulting in a below knee amputation;

GC v North West London Hospitals NHS Trust: Psychological injuries of a mother caused by the stillbirth of her baby son through a failure to admit for pre-eclampsia. Injuries affected a claimant’s ability to bond with subsequent child.

G v The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust: A substandard failure to warn of the risks of neurological damage in routine surgery to remove brachial cyst.

A v Epsom & St Helier NHS Trust: Substandard surgical care in a cholecystectomy led to a perforation of the small bowel and an undiagnosed leak, causing a further bowel resection and proximal loop ileostomy.

D v University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: The claimant had an ill-advised ileo-anastsmosis procedure, causing proctitis. The substandard bowel surgery resulted in prolonged recovery – including several revision surgeries – and damage to business.

M v F: Late diagnosis of laryngeal cancer, leading to bilateral neck dissection and a permanent tracheotomy.

H v South East Ambulance Service: Substantial claim in negligence for damages arising from bullying and sexual harassment in the workplace, leading to psychiatric injury and loss of congenial employment.

Spring v Richards: £150K settlement for a late diagnosis of malignant melanoma.

Reviews:

I was very happy with the service I received from Justin. He made what could have been a traumatic period, relatively easy.


Justin took time to explain in detail what was involved in pursuing this case down the PI route and, without fail, dealt with this matter with great sensitivity at all times. He has got me through many 'welfare' meetings with management; support I doubt I would have got elsewhere. He balances utmost professionalism with approachability and I never once felt uncomfortable discussing matters. Indeed, his understanding gave me the validation I needed at that distressing time.


I would just like to say a heartfelt thank you to Justin for not only all his hard work but also for his kindness and understanding. He realised how difficult it was for me to deal with this situation, having had to accept losing my profession after 30 years, along with the effect my accident and its resulting traumas had on my M.E. I am most grateful for his understanding and support, which has made a difficult situation much easier.
