Helen Niebuhr Partner T:01865 811712 M:07793 960515

An expert in cerebral palsy, brain injury and death caused by mistakes made in medical treatment by the NHS or private practitioners. 

Helen has recovered tens of millions of pounds in compensation for clients who have suffered due to negligence in clinical care. For children and those clients who have received compensation for permanent brain damage or long-term disability, Helen acts as a trustee or court-appointed deputy to support families in decisions about future care, how compensation ought to be spent or invested. She is also a specialist in equine accidents. 

Helen advises in cases of professional negligence by other solicitors who have mishandled cases involving personal injury or clinical negligence.

Examples of how Helen’s advice has benefited clients include:

  • recovering over £500,000 for the family of a child who died because of a medical accident;
  • securing the highest ever compensation payment (at the time) for a victim of cerebral palsy; and
  • recovering an additional £13 million for a group of clients, by insisting on a provision in the settlement agreements which entitled them to further compensation in certain circumstances.
