  • Clinical negligence:
    • Amy achieved a settlement of £115,000 for Mr L in his clinical negligence claim against Ashford & St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.  The claim arose out of an incorrect diagnosis of adenocarcinoma following a mix-up of prostate biopsy samples at St Peter’s Hospital.
  • Personal injury:
    • Amy acted for a 29-year old motorcyclist in his road traffic accident claim.  The claimant suffered serious orthopaedic and psychological injuries in addition to a range of financial losses, in respect of which a settlement in the region of £110,000 was agreed.
  • Inquest:
    • Amy represented the daughters of a 79-year old gentleman at inquest following his tragic death from pulmonary thromboembolism secondary to deep vein thrombosis.  Amy helped the family to secure a Prevention of Future Deaths report, which the Coroner issued in light of concerns regarding inconsistencies in the prescription of TED stockings at London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust.
