Medical Negligence

Victoria Beel

Senior Associate

I'm always humbled by the bravery and dignity of the people I represent, and this drives me to achieve justice for all my clients.

Expert profile

Get to know Victoria

I’m a senior associate solicitor in our medical negligence department, based in Manchester. I act for clients in a wide range of cases including surgical errors, delays in diagnosing cancer and errors leading to amputation. I have specific expertise in representing children who've been injured during childbirth, families who've lost loved ones as a result of medical negligence and failures in mental health care. I have represented many families at inquests which is a unique opportunity to seek improvements in care to make sure the same mistakes don't happen again.

Career highlights

Each case is different and unique. I fight to achieve justice for all my clients, but I understand this means different things to different people. I listen to what you want to put right and guide you through the complex legal process to achieve that. If you've been seriously injured and cannot work, you may be seeking financial security for the future. If you've lost a loved one through medical negligence you may want answers, to know why this happened to your family, an apology, and to know that it can never happen again to another family. I’ve dealt with several cases which have been turned down by other solicitors, thinking outside of the box to achieve a resolution.

Recognition

I've been regularly quoted in the press in cases where I've provided representation to clients at Inquests following the death of a loved one. Correct media handling can help to raise awareness of what has happened and give some control over how the story is told.

In 2019 I was awarded 2nd place for the AVMA (Action Against Medical Accidents) Rising Star Award in recognition of my contribution to medical negligence claims.

The extra mile

I've acted for many families who've been through the unbelievable heartbreak of losing a child or a parent. I know that the right support can be crucial, but this can be hard to find. The work of bereavement charities is amazing and in recognition of that, I climbed Kilimanjaro in February 2020 to raise money for Child Bereavement UK, a charity who've supported so many people at the hardest times in their life.
