Blackpool based Diane Rostron has been recognised in the annual The Legal 500 UK rankings as one of the leading clinical negligence teams in the North West.
Specialising in catastrophic brain injuries at birth, the team has once again been ranked alongside significantly larger law firms in the highly competitive category.
The Legal 500 UK 2022 directory described Diane Rostron as: “A small team that takes on challenging claimants’ cases, many of which have been ‘let go’ by previous solicitors. In-house medical knowledge and choice of experienced experts and counsel has generated a high success rate for clients.”
Representing clients across England and Wales, and a number of clients in other jurisdictions, the team at Diane Rostron represents families in £multi-million claims. The birth injury experts secured a £6.2 million settlement against Blackpool Victoria Hospital in March.
Commenting on the accolade, Diane Rostron, founder and birth injury expert at Diane Rostron, said: “We fight for families let down by medical professionals with catastrophic consequences every day. Our team acts as a voice for families failed in maternity units and left without a voice as the hospitals responsible often deny any wrongdoing – contrary to NHS guidelines.
“Birth injury claims are a complex, and highly competitive area of law. To be recognised alongside law firms with a national footprint is testament to the team’s unwavering commitment to delivering justice for children who have suffered serious, and irreversible, birth injuries.”
In the past 12 months Diane Rostron has won £5 million compensation against the Royal Preston Hospital, settled a claim following a historic birth injury incident in Cumbria for an estimated £15 million, and secured a compensation claim worth £8 million against the Royal Glamorgan Hospital in South Wales.
