Jenny Clendining Senior Associate T:01865 811227 M:07824 862148

A specialist in clinical negligence and personal injury, particularly birth injury.

Jenny's expertise in clinical negligence covers a wide range of claims from mistakes in general surgery including bile duct injuries, orthopedic injuries and delayed diagnosis of cancer to birth injuries, as well as fatal accidents, coroner's inquests and claims under the Fatal Accident Act.

Jenny’s specialist area is brain and birth injury, catastrophic and acquired, and cerebral palsy, supporting families at a difficult time through initial investigation and gathering of expert reports, securing interim payments to improve quality of life.

Recent examples of how Jenny has helped clients include:

  • securing an interim payment to cover living costs and rehabilitation for a victim with brain injury after being struck by a lorry, in a case that ultimately settled for £1.7million;
  • assisting the family of a mother who died through medical negligence in instituting mandatory changes in procedure to prevent the same mistake, and securing compensation on behalf of the victim's estate; and
  • securing compensation for a patient with prostate cancer, after being negligently diagnosed too late to prevent the illness becoming terminal.
