Clinical Negligence

Dominic has considerable experience of acting in clinical negligence claims for both claimants and defendants: drafting the full range of pleadings, advising on merits, quantum and settlement; successfully representing parties at RTMs and at mediation; as well as appearing in case management hearings, application hearings, and at trial in both the County and High Courts.

Cases include those involving:

  • Cerebral palsy and other catastrophic birth related injuries
  • Psychiatric injury (both primary and secondary victims)
  • Orthopaedic injuries (in particular delayed diagnosis of fractures)
  • Delayed diagnosis and treatment of cancer
  • Patients detained in prison or under the mental health act
  • Retained products of conception
  • Injuries to reproductive organs and ‘loss of a chance’ claims, including vaginal mesh
  • Cauda equina
  • Informed consent and scope of duty

Against the background of having been led by Lizanne Gumbel QC in achieving a successful settlement for hundreds of claimants against a consultant breast surgeon (Mr Ian Paterson) for negligent treatment spanning a decade given to both NHS and private patients, Dominic has developed a particular expertise in cases involving private healthcare providers. He is currently instructed in vaginal mesh claims being brought against Ian Lindsey/ Tony Dixon and Nuffield/ Spire Health.
