WITH over 30 years of experience in leading many of the country’s most sensitive medical negligence cases, Swansea-based JCP Solicitors has gained a reputation as one of the leading law firms in this field in Wales.

As the firm’s Medical Negligence team welcomes its newest addition – former Head of Clinical Negligence at Smith Llewelyn Partnership, Mei Li – JCP Solicitors has bolstered its position as a pioneer in this highly sensitive area of expertise in Wales.

Mei, who has an outstanding reputation in Medical Negligence and gained over 16 years of specialism in the field, said: “I am delighted to join such an experienced and established team with recognised leaders in the field of Medical Negligence.

“I am looking forward to continuing to work in the interests of people who have suffered serious injuries as a result of negligent medical treatment.”

Partner at JCP Solicitors and recognised Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel member, Matthew Owen, explains more about what the team does and the delicate nature of the cases that they carry out on behalf of individuals, and even other solicitors in Wales: “This complex area of law involves some deeply emotive, often high profile cases, and requires specialist representation and meticulous attention to detail.

Mei Li’s appointment is a considerable coup for our team. She has led on a number of large and varied medical negligence cases and will now perfectly complement our other colleagues in the team including Keith Thomas, who has championed this field for over 30 years gaining in excess of £75 million in compensation for clients.

If we could wave a magic wand, then the ideal outcome for each of these clients would be that the negligence did not occur in the first place.

Compensation is not a windfall and our clients and their families would be the first in line to verify that each day they live with the physical and mental effects of medical negligence.”

JCP Solicitors has 30 years’ experience leading many of Wales’s most serious medical negligence and catastrophic injury cases, and has subsequently gained the reputation as specialists in head and other catastrophic injury.

Members of the team belong to the Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel, the Law Society Panel of Personal Injury Lawyers, the Headway Head Injury Solicitors List, the Child Brain Injury Trust and the UK Acquired Brain Injury Forum.

Medical negligence cases involve supporting people who have suffered serious injuries due to poor medical treatment, by securing compensation to alleviate their hardship.

Working in this field has only increased the respect and admiration we hold for the vast majority of those working in the NHS.

Sadly, sometimes things do go wrong, and when that happens people can be left in a very vulnerable position and in need of support.

Some of the most serious cases we see include babies born with brain injuries as a result of being starved of oxygen at birth due to a failure on the part of medical staff to identify foetal distress.

In the most severe cases, this can lead to life long dependence on others for care and an inability to work.

Over the years we have worked with a great many individuals whose lives have been, and continue to be, severely affected by a health issue that would have been prevented with appropriate medical treatment.

Many cases have involved failures during surgery resulting in lasting damage such as limb amputation or bowel injury resulting in a colostomy. Other cases have related to delays in diagnosing conditions that can lead to serious injuries without timely treatment, such as a prolapsed disc compressing the spinal cord resulting in paralysis and incontinence.

In each of these cases, the specialism and experience of our team has resulted in the best possible outcomes for those whose lives have been affected.
