Spinal cord injury
About James Sherwin
Clinical Negligence specialist, having worked within the field since 2006. Recently listed as a Key Lawyer in the Legal 500 Directory, and in Chambers & Partners Directory as "a real fighter for his clients and a calm head in any circumstance," and "a lawyer you want in your corner."
I care passionately about this area of work and feel particularly grateful to be able to assist my clients achieve justice during what is often a very difficult time in their lives. Whilst exceptional legal knowledge is a key quality required in any clinical negligence lawyer, I believe the ability to empathise and connect with people is equally important. In fatal claims for example, the financial value of the claim is often relatively minimal compared to the importance to the family in finding out what happened to their loved one and the lessons that can be learned to prevent a recurrence. With the proposed changes to litigation funding on the horizon I fear it may become increasingly difficult for firms to take these cases on, and think it is vital we as lawyers do whatever we can to ensure everyone can continue to access our services.
In addition to my day job I am a Student Mentor for Professional Skills at De Montfort University, and involved with various other projects that include giving seminars at schools, colleges and universities, running career advice sessions and so on. I have also given lectures at medico-legal events such as the Royal College of Ophthalmologists Annual Congress.
