Birth injury solicitors recognised as leading expert

The catastrophic birth injury team of solicitors led by Diane Rostron has been ranked as a leading firm in the 2021 edition of Legal 500.

The team has secured in excess of £40 million worth of compensation for families in south Wales, Lancashire and Cheshire in the past 12 months alone, and has been ranked in Tier 3 in the annual legal directory, side by side with substantially larger specialist practices in the North West.

Commenting on the ranking, Diane Rostron, birth injuries solicitor, said: “We are delighted to be recognised once again in this highly competitive category. We have a small team of specialists representing families who have suffered a catastrophic birth injury. Despite the challenges we have all faced during the pandemic, we have continued to work hard to secure justice for clients across the country.

“This is a welcome accolade recognising our commitment to client service and we are particularly proud to be ranked alongside significantly larger specialist clinical negligence teams in the North West.”

The team secured a £27 million settlement for a boy left brain damaged at Blackpool Victoria Hospital following preventable errors.
