Williamsons strengthens clinical negligence team

Clinical negligence solicitor Sarah Jackson has joined Williamsons Solicitors.

Jackson started out in law in 2009, specialising in personal injury before focusing on clinical negligence when qualifying in 2015.

She has a particular interest in brain injuries caused at birth “and fighting for the families involved”.

Jackson continued: “And now, as a mother of a young child myself, their plight resonates even more with me.”

“These tragic cases, which can result in the child needing round-the-clock care, are often entirely avoidable.”

“Families can be left with enormous pressure both practically and financially, so it is only right that they receive appropriate compensation so that they can access all the vital support they need, whether that is in respect of treatment for the child, respite care or specially adapted accommodation.”

In addition to brain injuries at birth, Jackson has worked on a range of clinical negligence cases, including delayed diagnosis of cancer and avoidable amputations, and has experience of bringing claims to trial at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

She joins the Action Against Medical Accidents- and Law Society-recognised clinical negligence team at Williamsons.

Jackson said: “It’s a very close-knit department with great support from the highly-regarded, experienced solicitors and the paralegals. We all work with the same determination and focus on putting our clients first. I’m very pleased to be working alongside such consummate professionals.”

Nick Gray, head of department at Williamsons, said: “Our clinical negligence team is stronger than ever. This highly specialist area of law requires both diligence and an empathetic approach. Sarah is a very good fit and we are pleased that she has joined us.”
