Vicky joined Weightmans in 1986 as an articled clerk. She specialises in clinical negligence. She deals mostly with high value cases or those with unusual or novel issues including pre-issue resolution of a potential claim by mediation in which it was sought to expand the duty of care owed by the NHS and advising on management of a major patient safety incident relating to over 1,000 patients. She acted for one of the interested parties at the Mid Staffordshire Public Inquiry and has been involved in a number of group actions. Her particular interests are patient safety, mediation and the strategic management of claims.
