Claire Lloyd-Durney

Associate & Medical Negligence Solicitor

Claire is an Associate and Solicitor in our clinical negligence team. With a background in serious injury claims, Claire later decided to move into the clinical negligence field, where she specialises in claims involving birth injuries, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.  


Now, her caseload often involves complex medical issues that have left her clients with life-long injuries. But Claire finds great reward in achieving compensation that will ultimately allow people to rebuild their lives following clinical negligence. Claire is driven by her passion to support her clients, and by extension, their families; through what can only be described as one of the most difficult and challenging times of their life. As a naturally empathetic person, Claire is able to build strong relationships with her clients, guide them through the legal process with ease, and create a strong sense of security and trust along the way. In addition to this, one of the biggest drivers for Claire is the fact that she can use her expert legal skills and experience to obtain excellent compensation for her clients. All of which helps to ensure that their future is secure, and they can move forward upon the completion of their claims.
