About Hugh Johnson
I am a clinical negligence solicitor conducting complex and high-value claims, with a particular interest in claims involving spinal cord injury, whether as a result of failed diagnosis, substandard surgery or inadequate management of pre-existing conditions such as mental health care. For 15 years, I have assisted Claimants to rebuild their lives following life changing injuries.
I am also interested in patient safety and performance management of clinicians within the private health sector.
