Linder Myers Solicitors has further strengthened its medical negligence team with the appointment of two solicitors and a paralegals.

Rebecca Wilson joins the firm from Stephensons Solicitors, Georgina Tither has been appointed from Express Solicitors and joining as a paralegal, Sinead McCracken completes the trio of recent recruits joining from Thompsons Solicitors.

Commenting on her move Rebecca Wilson, medical negligence specialist at Linder Myers Solicitors, said: “Linder Myers’ medical negligence team has a strong reputation amongst other specialists in this field. With a national client base and impressive record of securing positive results for clients, I’m looking forward to the opportunity to work with some of the top specialists in this field.”

Trevor Ward, head of medical negligence at Linder Myers Solicitors, commented: “Our new recruits join a well-established team of experts in this complex, and highly specialised, area of law. Demonstrating both an eagerness to learn from more senior members of the team, and a passion for securing justice for significantly injured patients, we’re pleased to continue attracting new talent to the firm.”

Linder Myers’ medical negligence team is one of the largest in England and Wales representing clients significantly injured as a result of negligence by hospital medical staff, GPs or pharmacists. Alongside legal experts, the department also comprises a number of nurses.

The teams’ recent notable cases include winning a claim against Tottenham Hotspur, which was found to have failed in its duty of care to a young player who was left brain damaged as a result, and securing £5 million for another client who was left mostly blind and with significant mobility problems as a result of negligence at his local hospital.
