Medical Negligence Claims and Personal Injury Claims
Penny joined Simpson Millar LLP in October 2008 as a Solicitor working in the Personal Injury Department and then transferred to the Clinical Negligence Department in July 2010.
Qualifying as a solicitor in 1989, Penny has over 20 years’ experience in personal injury and clinical negligence work, working exclusively for claimants.
Penny also has considerable experience in representing clients at inquests and has acted in a number of high profile cases where issues of public interest have been involved.
Complex and high-value clinical negligence and personal injury claims are where Penny now applies her expertise, with particular emphasis on catastrophic birth injury cases.
