Susan’s professional biography

A specialist in claimant, high value brain injury and cerebral palsy cases, Susan combines the highest standards of professionalism and expertise gained from over 30 years of top tier clinical negligence litigation experience with outstanding compassion and empathy, earning her the respect and admiration of her colleagues, Counsel, medical experts and opponents, and close and loyal relationships with her clients.

Susan’s impressive track record of multi-million pound compensation awards reflects her personal commitment to making a lasting difference to the lives of disabled children and their families. Susan’s incisive and rigorous approach to establishing liability secures early judgments and substantial interim payments for her clients. With interim funds in place, she can begin work with the family, case managers, Boyes Turner’s SEN experts and Court of Protection deputy to alleviate the hardship suffered by her brain-injured clients, by providing care and respite, adapted accommodation, essential therapies, assistive technology and specialist equipment. By meeting the child’s needs at an early stage, the child and their parents can participate fully in family life and the child is given the best opportunity to achieve their full potential.

Susan’s dedication to claimant cerebral palsy cases is driven by her compassion for the children who have suffered devastating injury from negligent care. Working closely with their families, she understands the life-long implications of injuries of this severity, not only for the child, but for the family who face a daily struggle – physically, emotionally, and financially – to care and provide for their disabled child.

Susan’s clients often come to her through personal referral from families she has helped in the past and from other professionals, charities and support groups.
