Background

Estelle is a solicitor at Thompsons' Nottingham office where she works within the medical negligence team, dealing with cases from across the East Midlands.

Estelle has 17 years of experience dealing with both personal injury and medical negligence claims, but she has specialised in the latter.

Her cases include high-value claims involving life changing injuries for those who have suffered from spinal injuries, orthopedic injuries, amputations, surgical errors, brain injuries, fatalities, and delayed diagnoses of cancer. She also has experience of dealing with group actions arising from negligent surgery and the misuse of medical devices.

The most rewarding aspect of Estelle’s job at Thompsons is being able to carefully and skillfully support the injured at a difficult time in their lives and obtaining compensation which will ensure they have the support they need for the future.

Estelle enjoys that Thompsons is committed to working exclusively for the injured, and campaigns for changes in the law that benefit those that need it most.

 

Estelle's case experience

  • Secured £2.5 million for a client who was misdiagnosed and placed on an orthopaedic ward after attending A&E with lower back and leg pain. The client became ischaemic and needed a double leg amputation when the blood supply to their legs remained blocked by a clot at the base of their spine, which was missed by doctors.
