Medical Negligence Department at Pearson welcome two new lawyers

Two new team members have recently joined the growing medical negligence department at Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers, the Oldham based law firm.

With years of experience working with Personal Injury clients, and a wealth of professional knowledge on these types of cases, solicitor, Karen Kenyon, has moved into the medical negligence department. Joedanna Neild, also joins the team working alongside the solicitors as a Paralegal.

Joedanna has recently completed her degree at Manchester Metropolitan University and is looking forward to learning ‘on the job’ as she completes her solicitor’s qualifying exams.

“I am excited to have joined Pearson, I live locally and they have such a good reputation so I’m proud to be part of their team,” says Joedanna.

“It’s been interesting to find out that Pearson also work for clients across the whole of England and I am really looking forward to learning something new every day in my new role.

Joedanna is from the Ashton area and adds:  “It’s important to work where you live as you really get a feel for the area, I know the types of clients locally, and working in medical negligence I know the hospitals they have used and feel that I can empathise with them.  Visualising where your clients have been really does put it all into context.”

Karen also brings with her experience and an empathy for her clients, she has previously worked in Personal Injury and Family and is relishing the challenge of Medical Negligence work.

“I feel the experience gained in other areas of the law will serve me well in medical negligence and I’ll bring something new to the team,” says Karen.

“Dealing with divorcing couples one tends to have a sympathetic approach, but at the same time remain professional and always remember you are there to give the best advice possible. Medical Negligence work is varied and very challenging, from prescription errors right through to the most traumatic and catastrophic birth injuries, or cases of hospital negligence.

“My personal injury and family backgrounds are great preparation for this new challenge and I am looking forward to working with clients not only locally, but interestingly from all over England,” she adds.

Welcoming them to the team, Pearson Head of Clinical Negligence, Jacqueline White, says:  “It’s lovely to have two such different members join the department. Joedanna is right at the very start of her legal career and Karen brings with her a wealth of experience, amazing client care and a fresh steer to the department.

“Our team have never been busier and with every case we strive to make sure lessons are learned, but sadly medical mistakes continue to happen, what we try to do is pick up the pieces and help those clients who need to get the care and compensation they deserve.”
