Managing a caseload comprising of maximum severity cases, Nicola specialises in catastrophic injury and claims for adults and children who have suffered brain injuries as a result of clinical negligence, accidents or road traffic collisions.
In regards to clinical negligence, Nicola represents clients who have been victims of clinical negligence, including cerebral palsy, wrongful birth, diagnostic mistakes, delayed diagnosis and surgical errors.
Nicola is also part of the team responsible for representing those clients affected by vaginal mesh implants (TVT and TOT) and is heavily involved in progressing those cases, as well as supervising the work of others.
With significant experience of dealing with clients who have suffered amputations (both from medical negligence and trauma) and spinal injuries, Nicola works tenaciously to ensure that compensation is achieved to meet their needs and enable them to lead a full and active life.
Nicola aims to obtain interim payments wherever possible, so rehabilitation, a care package and suitable accommodation can be put in place before the claim is concluded. Nicola has an extensive record of successfully litigating high-value cases.
The most rewarding aspect about working at Thompsons for Nicola is the firm’s commitment to only representing the victims of injustice or injury.
