As a senior associate - solicitor in Boyes Turner’s outstanding medical negligence team, Vanessa Wand, has secured millions of pounds of compensation for her clients.
Vanessa deals exclusively with complex, high value medical negligence claims. She has a specialist interest in obstetric and birth-related injuries to both mother and baby, which include cerebral palsy and severe neonatal injury, maternal death, complex stillbirth with psychiatric maternal injury, perinatal tears and cloacal injury, alongside her broad-based expertise with cases involving amputation, cancer and other life threatening, fatal and permanently disabling conditions.
Working both independently and as an invaluable support to the partners in the group, Vanessa is an expert in quantifying claims involving cerebral palsy and other types of neonatal, severe, neurological injuries, consistently enabling her clients to receive the highest possible compensation awards.
Vanessa is frequently complimented by clients, counsel and defendant solicitors for her professionalism, efficiency and care. She is ranked as a 'Next Generation Lawyer' by The Legal 500, who comment: "another key member is senior associate Vanessa Wand, who 'has a razor sharp mind'". She is also highly valued by other members of Boyes Turner’s clinical negligence group, both for her supportive and supervisory roles within the group and as an outstanding and experienced clinical negligence fee earner in her own right.
"You’ve always been so sensitive to our feelings and at the same time professional, detailed and thorough. Your interest and enthusiasm to help us is always evident." - Client quote
Vanessa is a member of the Law Society’s Specialist Clinical Negligence Panel, Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA), the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL). She is also the firm's represenative of the Society of Clinical Injury Lawyers (SCIL).
In her spare time, you’ll find Vanessa enjoying motherhood with her new daughter. She likes visiting art galleries and going to gigs. A keen traveller and trekker, Vanessa has explored South East Asia, Central and South America, where she has seen some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
I am overwhelmed by the outcome in terms of the monetary value and know I should consider it as a near a 'sorry' as I am likely to get from the hospital. It will be nice to start the process of closure on the whole issue now and look towards the future for us as a family.
