Linder Myers appoints medical negligence solicitor

Law firm Linder Myers has added a new solicitor to its medical negligence team with the appointment of Debora Harrison from Birchall Blackburn in Preston.

The appointment further strengthens the local team, led by Diane Rostron, with Harrison bringing more than 15 years’ experience in dealing with medically complex cases including matters relating to negligence by GPs, hospital doctors and nurses.

Specialising in cases involving incidents of misdiagnosis, surgical errors, orthopaedic and gynaecological matters, Harrison has secured in excess of £1.5m for a client.

Debora Harrison said: “I’m very pleased to be joining Linder Myers’ nationally renowned medical negligence team and specifically working closely with Diane Rostron who has a strong reputation for high value brain injury and cerebral palsy cases. Medical negligence is an area I’m particularly passionate about and I’m looking forward to helping more individuals and families who are sadly affected by this.” Diane Rostron added: “Debora is a very welcome addition to the team bringing extensive experience and compassion. Incidents of medical negligence sadly continue to take place in our local hospitals. Debora’s appointment further strengthens Linder Myers’ commitment to helping those who find themselves in these unfortunate circumstances.”
