Medical Negligence

Rachel Shafar


I am passionate about helping my clients to achieve justice for the life changing injuries they or their loved ones have suffered as a result of medical negligence.

Rachel Shafar

Get to know Rachel

I first joined Slater and Gordon as a trainee solicitor in 2013 and qualified as a solicitor specialising in medical negligence claims in 2015. I am based in the firm’s Manchester office.

I have a varied caseload of medical negligence cases, which include cases where clients have suffered from orthopaedic injuries, delays in diagnosis including cancer and surgical errors. I have expertise in cases where clients have suffered from amputation as a result of medical negligence.

I regularly act for clients making claims against GPs, hospital Trusts and private consultants.

Career highlights

Every claim I have settled is a career highlight. I spend significant time working with my clients and it is extremely rewarding to achieve a positive outcome for them. In addition to helping clients obtain compensation to help them rebuild their lives as best they can, it is also very satisfying to assist clients by obtaining answers from those who treated them and to raise awareness about their cases to ensure that the same mistakes do not occur again.


I am accredited as a Litigator by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
