Part of the Medical Negligence Team
Olivia is a Senior Solicitor in the Medical Negligence Department. She qualified in August 2015 and joined Bolt Burdon Kemp in March 2017. She is compassionate to the needs of her clients and approachable at any time of day.
Olivia represents both adults and children in claims against private and public (NHS) doctors and healthcare providers.
She has particular experience in helping those who have suffered long term injuries as a result of errors during surgery, those who have suffered an injury as a result of a negligent delay in diagnosis of orthopaedic injuries, those who have suffered a delay in diagnosis of cancer and those with ophthalmic claims. She assists clients in accessing treatment from occupational therapists, care experts, nutritionists and other specialists who can provide help and advice as early as possible, due to the long term health benefits and improved prognosis this can provide her clients. She is dedicated to fighting for early admissions of liability and early interim payments to provide her clients with the treatment and support they need to aid their recovery.
Olivia is very passionate about helping women bring claims after they have suffered birth injuries which would have been avoidable had it not been for negligence on the care provider’s part. Olivia’s clients often suffer psychiatric injuries as well as physical injuries and Olivia is determined to get these women the support and compensation they deserve.
Olivia has experience bringing claims on behalf of families whose loved ones have died as a result of medical negligence. She feels strongly about helping families to understand what happened to their loved one and wherever possible, securing compensation to assist them at such a difficult time.
She took part in the Nuclear Rush in May 2017 to assist her military colleagues in raising funds for BLESMA, who support limbless veterans, and she is looking forward to taking part in further fundraising activities for other charities close to her heart.
