Helen Donaghy is the head of our medical negligence department, based within our Stockton on Tees offices. Helen is a member of the Law Society Clinical Negligence Accreditation Scheme and the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).

Before qualifying as a solicitor, Helen worked as a Registered General Nurse with a background in accident and emergency medicine. Helen now specialises in medical law and acts exclusively for those that have suffered life changing injury as a result of medical treatment.

Helen deals with all types of clinical negligence including (but not limited to) birth injuries, brain and spinal cord injuries, amputations, burns, wrongful birth, multiple trauma and pressure sores. Helen helps people to recover compensation to aid their recovery, and also provides support for both themselves and their family beyond the claims process.

Helen also acts for people who have received negligent legal advice regarding settlement of medical negligence claims for the shortfall in damages, or the lost chance to bring a claim for full compensation.
