- hypoxic brain injury during surgery

Rujina has experience working on various types of clinical negligence claims, including injuries arising out of negligence during childbirth, delays in diagnosis and treatment of disease or injury and negligent surgery. She also worked on a number of inquests assisting families whose loved ones had died whilst in the care of the NHS.
She has a broad range of experience dealing with personal injury claims, including road traffic accidents (motor vehicles, cyclists and pedestrian), public transport accidents, accidents at work and claims relating to public and occupiers liability.
During her training, Rujina assisted her former colleagues with their work as Professional Deputies for those who lacked capacity to manage their property and financial affairs.
