Michael accepts instructions , primarily from claimants, in clinical negligence claims and is keen to develop this aspect of his practice. He has particular experience of:
• Coroners Inquests into deaths in hospital
• Misdiagnoses/negligent treatment in Accident and Emergency cases
• Negligently performed spinal surgery
• Negligent nursing care of paediatric epilepsy patients
• Negligently performed ophthalmological surgery
• Failure to correctly set fractures of the hand
• MRSA claims
• Misdiagnoses in cardiology cases
• Michael has also assisted on a number of mishandled birth cases resulting in catastrophic brain injuries/cerebral palsy.
Michael accepts conditional fee work, subject to positive risk assessment, and has developed a sub-specialism in claims where limitation is in issue. Indeed, he recently lectured upon the subject of limitation in clinical negligence claims at an AVMA event.
