Alex is an Associate in the Spinal Injury team at Bolt Burdon Kemp. She is of dual nationality (Polish-British) and speaks fluent Polish.
Having joined the firm in 2007 as a paralegal, Alex subsequently obtained a training contract with the firm, qualifying as a solicitor in March 2012.
Alex acts for people who have sustained a Spinal Cord Injury as a result of medical errors or accidents.
Prior to specialising in Spinal Injury claims, Alex assisted on a number of high value claims involving catastrophic injuries. The claims included an amputation claim (settled for £1.7 million), a complex claim for spinal cord injury following a scoliosis operation (settled for £5.3 million) and a clinical negligence claim for a child for failure to treat GBS infection.
Alex’s current deals with a varied caseload of spinal injury cases and includes claims for delayed diagnosis and treatment of Cauda Equina Syndrome, delayed diagnosis and treatment of discitis (inflammation in the spine) and for delayed diagnosis of spinal abscess all of which have resulted in life changing injuries. She has recently settled a clinical negligence claim for delayed diagnosis and treatment of the ruptured patella tendon which settled for £850,000 despite the Defendant’s only offer of £3,000.
