Personal Injury and Medical Negligence Solicitors recognised for their expertise by independent panel

Legal 500 Leading FirmThe team at Blackwater Law have once again been recognised by the Legal 500 in both the Medical Negligence and Personal Injury categories in the South East region for 2019.

The Legal 500 is an independent panel selecting the legal teams judged to be providing cutting edge an innovative advice. It is based on feedback from clients as well as their own research so Blackwater Law’s continued presence is something to be proud of.

Medical Negligence

The Legal 500 states that Blackwater Law: has ‘an outstanding track record for assisting clients and strong expertise in complex cases and is well regarded’. The team handles claims involving fatal misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, surgical error, amputation, spinal injury (including cauda equina syndrome), and brain and birth injury (such as cerebral palsy). A recent highlight was the representation of a family who lost their husband and father after he suffered a cardiac arrest as his thoracic aortic aneurysm was misdiagnosed by A&E the day before. The ‘hands-on, thorough and sensitive’ partner Jason Brady and senior solicitor Dominic Graham are the key contacts, while senior chartered legal executive Anna Watson and litigation executive Kamila Jaskula take on lower-value surgical error, failed beauty treatment and skin disease misdiagnosis cases.

Personal Injury

The Legal 500 states that Blackwater Law are: an ‘experienced and client-focused‘ personal injury department who delivers ‘a tailored service that is nothing short of excellent‘ and is especially recommended for ‘arranging quality rehabilitation for clients who were injured in no-fault accidents‘. It ‘handles a wide variety of claims‘, including road traffic accident, industrial disease, brain and spinal injury, and amputation cases. Niche expertise exists in claims concerning accidents that happened abroad and post-traumatic stress disorder. In a recent highlight, ‘exceptional, competent and efficient‘ practice lead Jason Brady secured a settlement sum of £1.175m for a claimant who had a head-on car collision, which she later had no memory of, and thus sustained a traumatic brain injury, several fractures and surgery scars. The multi-track team also includes senior solicitor Dominic Graham and ‘polite, responsive and understanding‘ senior chartered legal executive Anna Watson. Litigation executive Kamila Jaskula deals with a range of less complex cases.
