Medical Negligence

Alison Hills

Senior Associate

I am very passionate about my job and in achieving justice for my clients, who have often suffered significant and life changing injuries.

Expert profile of Alison Hills

Get to know Alison

I am an experienced solicitor-advocate and APIL Accredited Senior Litigator, having specialised in this area of law for over a decade.

I commenced my legal career in 2004 in personal injury litigation and then diversified my practice into the fields of medical negligence and mental health in 2009. I achieved Law Society accreditation for mental health in 2011 shortly before qualifying as a solicitor and have successfully settled several cases involving failed community care which resulted in preventable suicide.

I have vast experience in a variety of medical negligence cases including; delayed cancer diagnosis; obstetric and gynaecological injury leading to loss of fertility; birth injury; spinal cord injury; negligent orthopaedic surgery; and sepsis cases involving multiple limb amputation.

Career highlights

Some of the settlements that I have achieved include the following:

  • £1.35 million for a missed diagnosis of malrotation of the bowels which resulted in catastrophic volvulus and lifelong treatment needs
  • £400,000, on a provisional damages basis, for a delayed diagnosis of a slipped femoral epiphysis of the hip
  • £75,000 for a case involving delayed diagnosis of renal cancer
  • £700,000 for a case involving negligent hip surgery

I have also assisted on a number of catastrophic injury claims including spinal cord injury and birth injury; one of which settled in the sum of £12 million.

I am currently instructed on a number of complex and high value catastrophic injury cases including cases relating to cerebral palsy and erb’s palsy.

Recognition

I have achieved Senior Litigator status with APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers).

I have also achieved my Higher rights of Audience for civil proceedings.

The extra mile

I volunteer at the Citizens Advice Bureau and I am a very active participant in sporting activities for various charities; most recently completing the London Marathon for MIND and the “cycle for sepsis” challenge for the UK Sepsis Trust.
