Experience Profile

Victoria is head of our clinical negligence department at Slater and Gordon Lawyers in London.

She is a highly-regarded and respected litigator with more than 13 years’ experience handling a multitude of different cases including traumatic brain injury, spinal injuries as a result of surgery, amputation, anaesthetic awareness, misdiagnosis of cancer and birth injury claims.

Victoria has acted in a range of cases involving those against GP’s and hospitals.  She sensitively handles claims involving fatalities of loved ones and cases involving foreign doctors practicing in this jurisdiction. 

Her most challenging case to date settled for just under £6 million and her current caseload consists of cases of a similar high value and with technical legal arguments.
