Birth injury Brain injury Cerebral palsy Surgical negligence

Kelly specialises exclusively in clinical negligence claims.

She acts in a wide range of cases on behalf of adults and children arising out of NHS and private care. Her areas of specialism include cases involving delayed diagnosis; orthopaedic injuries; cases arising out of negligently performed surgery and injuries arising out of childbirth, including acting for women who have been injured during childbirth or whose babies have sadly died or been stillborn as a result of the antenatal or obstetric care they received. Kelly also acts for parents on behalf of children who have suffered brain damage at around the time of their birth. 

Kelly brings claims on behalf of the bereaved families of people who have died as a result of failings in the care they received. 

Kelly has a particular interest in ophthalmology cases and has handled claims involving misdiagnosed glaucoma, detached retinas and the delayed diagnosis of wet macular degeneration. 

Kelly was excellent and she explained the procedure in detail and guided me every step of the way. I was quite overwhelmed with the substantial settlement figure, which will make my life much easier in the future.
