About Karen

Karen has over 30 years experience of acting for Claimants in clinical negligence claims. She particularly specialises in claims involving profound brain injuries and pursues the compensation necessary to provide the clients with full support, aids and equipment and accommodation going forward into the future. Karen deals with all types of medical cases, but particularly represents Claimants in cerebral palsy and other birth injury cases and brain injury cases.

She has been praised for her direct approach being able to explain complex medical terminology to Claimants and make them feel at ease when going through a very difficult and traumatic process. Her aim is to take away the stress of seeking compensation at what is very often an emotional and disturbing time. Karen is accredited by the Law Society as a clinical negligence specialist and by AvMA the specialist charity dealing with medical accidents.

Karen is ranked as a leading individual in Chambers & Partners (2024 edition) and is listed as a Recommended Lawyer in the Legal 500 (2021 edition).
