Law firm Hill Dickinson is proud to announce that its national health practice celebrated a double awards success at the prestigious Eclipse Proclaim Personal Injury Awards, held on Wednesday 29 November at the Hilton Deansgate, Manchester.
The awards, now in their 10th year, highlight and celebrate the excellence of individuals and organisations across the personal injury claims sector.
The firm’s health litigation team was hailed Clinical Negligence Team of the Year. Building on its solid reputation, the team has grown significantly in recent times having successfully won a number of major tenders as well as acting on two sector defining Court of Appeal decisions. The team has been on NHS Resolution’s panel for clinical negligence litigation since inception in 1995 and is highly-regarded for handling group action claims. The team also won Outstanding Case of the Year for its work in the landmark Court of Appeal case of Reaney –v- University Hospital of North Staffordshire NHS Trust on assessing damages for additional injury.
The team is ranked in band one for ‘Clinical Negligence Defendant – North West’ in legal directory The Legal 500 UK 2017 where the team is praised for its ‘knowledge of the healthcare industry – the scope of knowledge across the teams and within the teams is amazing and this knowledge is seamlessly provided to the client’ and described as ‘prominent and well-regarded with a national presence’ in Chambers and Partners UK 2018.
Congratulating the team, Hill Dickinson’s head of health Andrew Craggs, said: ‘I am thrilled the team has been recognised and rewarded for its hard work and dedication to delivering consistently high levels of client care. The two award wins reflect the strength and expertise of our growing health litigation team and our unrivalled reputation in this area. This is an exciting time for the team as we continue our growth in the North West as well as our expansion in London and Leeds.’
The team is also shortlisted for Clinical Negligence Team of the Year at the 2018 Modern Law Awards which will take place on Thursday 18 January in the grand setting of The Lancaster Hotel, London.
