A key member of Thompsons Solicitors’ clinical negligence team, Gemma Mitten is based at Condor House in Central London, and takes cases from all over the capital and south east England.

Gemma has more than a decade of experience dealing with clinical negligence claims, as well as handling personal injury cases arising from road accidents.

The clinical negligence claims resulted from orthopaedic injuries, surgical errors and pressure sores, which develop in bed-ridden patients in the absence of proper care. Other cases involved medical deficiencies during and immediately after birth.

Gemma conducts and manages a full caseload of medical negligence claims in line with the visions and values of Thompsons Solicitors, which only represents the injured party and never those who may be responsible for the injuries or their insurance companies. 

Gemma focuses on ensuring the claims are progressed as quickly as possible, and ensures the client’s damages are maximised.

Above all, Gemma values Thompsons Solicitors’ insistence on putting the client first and its strong links with the labour and trade union movement.

Away from work, Gemma is a keen gym-goer and enjoys musical theatre.

Gemma's case experience

  • Gemma secured £30,000 compensation for a bus driver after a scalpel snapped during keyhole surgery on his knee, causing severe damage to his leg.
  • Gemma secured damages of around £7,500 for the estate of a patient who had been suffering from a pressure sore. Gemma had to fight hard for the client’s family, because the care home initially failed to respond.
