Jill trained at Shoosmiths and qualified as a solicitor in September 2003, she now works in the Clinical Negligence department.
Jill works on a wide range of diverse cases across clinical negligence, including cases arising from late diagnosis, birth injuries affecting mothers and children and failures in elder care. She has a particular interest in late diagnosis, surgical error and issues around disclosure of medical error.
Work highlights include:
- the agreement of, what we believe, is the highest value periodical payments order ever made for a brain injured child;
- an admission of liability in a surgical error claim brought nine years out of time, that had been turned down by previous solicitors acting under a legal expense insurance policy;
- supporting a bereaved family in preparation for the inquest into the death of a 32 year old woman from cervical cancer, which went undiagnosed on up to 30 separate occasions.
Prior to joining Shoosmiths, Jill was a legal manager with Marks and Spencer and then the Virgin Group. Jill graduated with a 2:1 in Law prior to training as a solicitor and, since qualifying, graduated with Distinction from Queen Mary College, University of London in the LLM in Medical law and Ethics.
