Sue is a Partner at Girlings Personal Injury Claims, dealing exclusively with clinical negligence claims. She has over 14 years’ litigation experience. She undertook ‘on the job’ training before qualifying in 2009 specialising initially in Defendant personal injury litigation for one of the UK’s largest insurance companies. In 2011 Sue joined Girlings and transferred her skills to Claimant personal injury claims. Sue quickly developed an affinity for clinical negligence litigation and within 8 months moved her specialism into that field.
Sue was promoted to a Senior Associate in 2015 and in January 2019 became a Partner. Sue acts exclusively for Claimants in serious and complex clinical negligence claims. She is highly regarded as a Next Generation Lawyer with a breadth of expertise in high value claims arising from delayed diagnosis of cancer, substandard management of labour, fatal injury claims, negligent care resulting in amputation, and cases concerning infant deaths.
Sue is recognised as a consistent high achiever within the firm, who regularly secures settlements for clients whether by ‘round table meetings’, negotiation or mediation. She is a meticulous and committed lawyer and has been commended for her efficiency and attention to detail. Sue’s strength lies in her ability to establish rapport and trust with clients, who in many cases have lost faith with professionals. Her clients have thanked Sue for her ‘hard work’, ‘professional care’, and ability to explain difficult to grasp issues.
Sue is a member of APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) and is accredited by The Foundation for Infant Loss.
