Clinical Negligence Solicitor - Cambridge

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a junior Solicitor to join this close knit medical negligence team based in Cambridge (5 minutes from the main Cambridge train station).

The team handles medical negligence claims for people who have suffered illness or injury as a result of substandard care in any medical setting such as treatment from a GP, NHS hospital or private clinic. The work is very varied and includes all types of medical negligence casework, including claims involving birth injury (including injury to both mother and baby), brain and spinal injury, negligent surgery, fatal accidents and inquest representation, delays in diagnosis or inappropriate treatment.

You'll handle a caseload which will include the investigation and litigation of a wide variety of claims including high value and catastrophic injury cases, with appropriate support according to your experience. To be successful in the role you will ideally have at least 2 years' post-qualified experience in medical negligence in a claimant setting. However, solicitors currently practising in a defendant firm will be considered.

A key aspect of this role will be to contribute energetically to our business development strategy which might include developing external relationships across the region and raising awareness of our client work through PR and other means therefore you will need a strong appetite for business development.

In return you can expect an attractive salary and genuine career prospects.
