Two leading women’s health and birth injury lawyers, Elise Bevan and Helen Hammond, have joined our national clinical negligence and serious injury team.

Elise Bevan

Elise Bevan joins as a Partner in the medical negligence team. Elise has a particular expertise in the field of women’s health litigation to include representing those pursuing vaginal mesh claims and gynaecological injuries following negligent medical treatment. Elise will be based in our Brighton office and will be expanding the firms’ clinical negligence offering across the South coast.

Helen Hammond

Helen Hammond, Senior Associate, specialises in maternity care claims. She will be joining our long-established team of birth injury lawyers Helen specialises in claims for those living with cerebral palsy and for families who have sadly lost a child due to poor care.

Both Elise and Helen are AvMA panel accredited clinical negligence solicitors.

Our national team now comprises of more than 110 lawyers operating across the UK. In particular, we are known for our expertise in the field of maternity negligence. Most recently, we represented the parents in the high-profile case of baby Orlando Davis who died at the University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust following negligent care during his birth.

There are calls by many affected families for an independent inquiry to be carried out into the state of maternity services at the Trust.

The team have also resolved two cerebral palsy claims being some of the highest settlements achieved at £27.5m and £28.34m.

Kay Taylor, Clinical Negligence Partner says:

“We are very excited that Elise and Helen are joining CL Medilaw and will be strong additions to our already remarkable team that continues to grow across the country. We welcome them both to the group on the 5th anniversary of the launch of our CL Medilaw brand. We look forward to them being key individuals within the wider team dedicated to Changing Lives by supporting families and children learning to live with injury and loss due to negligent care and treatment”.
