Rosalyn Steeple

Principal Lawyer - Clinical Negligence

With over 20 years experience, I am adept at pushing the boundaries of the law and exploring novel legal arguments in the pursuit of justice, securing often life-changing compensation awards for my clients.

Get to know Rosalyn

I trained with a large national claimant injury firm in London and latterly Manchester, and over the last 20 years have represented and won compensation for hundreds of injured claimants. I am delighted and proud to have made the move in 2022 to the fantastic and vastly experienced Clinical Negligence team at Slater and Gordon as a Team Leader.

I developed a particular interest in clinical negligence and have practiced solely in that field since 2015. That has afforded me extensive experience dealing with a wide range of matters including utmost severity cerebral palsy and other birth injuries, fatal claims, delay in diagnosis of cancer and other diseases, orthopaedic and surgical blunders, and neglect claims.

I have only ever acted for claimants (not defendants or insurers) a fact I am very proud of and I am passionate about achieving justice and recovering compensation for my often vulnerable clients . I am approachable, friendly, and compassionate and the Legal 500 noted in 2020 that I have a “great manner with clients”.

Career highlights

I meticulously investigated the labour and birth of a baby boy which gave rise to a claim for cerebral palsy. My robust opening correspondence with the defendant following that investigation process resulted in a rare full early admission of liability and facilitated a six-figure interim payment. This enabled the claimant and his family to move to a large, single story accommodation suitable for his complex needs and with space for therapies and access to outside space , before he turned 3.

I recently recovered a 6-figure sum for a 75-year-old claimant who suffered an above knee amputation after a blood clot developed in hospital whilst waiting for routine surgery to fit a pacemaker. The settlement included substantial funds for a prosthesis which had previously been ruled out as an option under NHS funding, due to the claimant’s age. Provision of the prostheses had a positive life changing impact upon her day to day life.


Legal 500, an independent legal body said in 2019: “Rosalyn Steeple is a consummate professional. She deals with the most serious of cases with calmness under pressure and in a very personable manner. Clients like her and she establishes good working relationships with defendant solicitors which makes negotiations easier."

The extra mile

I have recently completed the National Three Peaks Challenge raising money with Slater and Gordon Colleagues for Stick ‘n’ Step – a charity that enables, inspires and supports children with cerebral palsy.

Outside of work, I am a school governor and am passionate about the improvement of standards and outcomes for all.
