Vincents adds to clinical negligence team

By Lancashire Business View

Vincents Solicitors has appointed senior solicitor Debora Harrison to its clinical negligence team within the firm’s personal injury department.

Debora joins Vincents from Linder Myers in Lytham, prior to that she was with Birchall Blackburn in Preston.

An experienced clinical negligence solicitor, Debora handles cases involving surgical mistakes, GP or nurse errors, misdiagnosis or diagnosis delay, with fatal and life-changing outcomes. During her career she has successfully secured settlements for clients and their families, including two of £1.5m and a number of six-figure sums.

She said: “Clinical negligence is one of the most tragic areas of the law, where clients have been let down by the professionals in whom they placed their trust. Often their injuries are so life changing that only a significant settlement can allow them to get the on-going care and support they need and try to find a way to live with the physical and psychological effects of what has gone wrong, or to provide for the family they leave behind.

“While I am wholly supportive of our NHS and its dedicated medics - and there are masses of patient treatments every day without incident - when something goes wrong it absolutely has to be investigated and addressed. I do believe there is a postcode lottery, insofar as access to treatment is better in some places than others, and one of the fastest growing areas for us is people whose diagnosis or treatment has been delayed due to pressure on services or administrative error. We do hope that by bringing these cases and highlighting instances of negligence, that we can not only get justice for our clients but also contribute to the authorities reviewing and improving the service for future patients.”

Olivia Robinson, head of Vincents’ PI department, said: “Debora is a professional and dedicated solicitor with more than 14 years’ experience in this sector, with a passion and commitment to fighting for her clients which really stood out. She has an extremely strong track record of achieving significant settlements for her clients, and is known for her compassionate approach which is vital when working with people who have suffered from clinical negligence. We are very pleased to welcome Debora.” Debora will work alongside Olivia Robinson, litigation executive Denise Singleton and personal assistant Hayley Mars in the clinical negligence team. In addition to clinical negligence, Vincents also has an expert road traffic accident team and public and employer liability specialists.
