She works closely with Dr Jock Mackenzie specialising in claimant clinical negligence. She assists on some of his complex and high-value clinical negligence cases as well as taking the lead in other cases. Amy’s practice involves all aspects of clinical negligence, including misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis of cancer, childbirth injury, sepsis, and surgical and clinical error.
Amy and Jock have recently had high profile trials heard in the High Court in London and Court of Appeal. Their cases of Kennedy v Frankel  EWHC 106 (QB) involved a failure by the treating neurologist to respond adequately to clear information that the Claimant was suffering from an Impulse Control Disorder, and Hewes v West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust & Others  EWHC 1345 (QB) successfully appealed a decision by the interim Master to dismiss the Claimant’s claim against the Third Defendant by way of summary judgment. Other cases Amy has worked on include securing compensation for bereaved parents when their daughter died of congenital pneumonia caused by ß-haemolytic Group B Streptococcus (“Group B Strep”) and settling a claim after a woman suffered catastrophic neurological injuries following a pericardiocentesis procedure.
