Blackwater Law medical negligence solicitors acted for Mr L in a medical negligence claim in the High Court after he was misdiagnosed. The misdiagnosis meant he went on to suffer a serious stroke causing life-limiting disability.
With particular expertise in misdiagnosis claims, birth injury claims, spinal injury claims and brain injury claims, Jason deals with the firm’s most complex cases, involving high value settlements for his clients.
Jason advises and represents clients across the country. His clients have often suffered serious debilitating injury or illness and require specialist legal advice and representation to pursue claims that compensate them for their pain and suffering. However, Jason ensures the claims he makes on his clients’ behalf go beyond this. He includes within his legal arguments and negotiations claims for compensation that deal also with the financial losses his clients have suffered.
Such are the implications of the serious injuries and illnesses his clients suffer, his clients are often unable to return to work or may have to rejoin the workforce in a lower skilled and lower paid role. This means they often face lower earnings than they otherwise would have.
Jason’s clients also often require significant on-going care due to their injuries and illnesses and many are often concerned about being able to afford professional care on a long-term basis. Jason reassures his clients that where appropriate, included within their claim will be financial provision for all the care they will need throughout their lifetime. Through his approach, Jason aims to provide clients with long-term stability and peace of mind.
Jason is recognised as a shrewd negotiator and it is not uncommon for Jason to achieve compensation settlements that exceed barristers’ valuations. This is credit to his approach in dealing with defendants and in building the strongest possible case in support of his clients’ claims.
During the course of his career as a medical negligence solicitor, Jason has built a national network of leading medical experts that him and his team at Blackwater Law call upon to provide expert evidence in support of their legal and medical arguments, which are put to defendants and judges. The importance of this network of medical specialists in 1) proving liability and 2) supporting maximising compensation amounts, cannot be over stated.
