Liverpool law firm Hampson Hughes has appointed a new senior solicitor as part of an ongoing expansion of its specialist medical negligence team.

Medical negligence lawyer Laura Owen has more than 15 years’ experience working in leading law firms with a particular focus on helping victims of medical negligence to seek justice.

She joins Hampson Hughes from a legal 500 law firm, Stephensons Solicitors, where she worked for more than nine years, initially in the firm’s family law department before joining their medical negligence department.

Her personal case history includes supporting clients who have experienced surgical negligence, anaesthetic awareness, delayed cancer diagnosis, misdiagnosis, orthopaedic injury and delayed stroke diagnosis.

These cases have ranged in value from £1,000 to £300,000. Ms Owen has also assisted on cases involving cerebral palsy and brain injury with damages being awarded in excess of £2m.

She considers her prior experience in family law gives her the ability to really empathise and connect with clients. This combined with her exceptional legal knowledge makes her adept at handling even the most sensitive of cases.

“As clinical negligence lawyers, we represent people going through a very difficult time and it’s essential to be empathetic, but at the same time deliver robust, pragmatic advice and support to ensure the right outcome is achieved,” she said.

Carlos Lopez, director of clinical negligence at Hampson Hughes, added: “Medical negligence is one of our most rapidly developing departments and we are keen to build on our strong foundations and expertise in this area. From the moment I met Laura I knew she would be a great addition to the team.”
