Giles Harrison Hall Clinical Negligence

Call: 1977

Introduction

Giles deals with significant clinical negligence cases, including obstetrics, complications following operations for sterilization, failed anesthesia, missed diagnoses, failed plastic surgery, spinal surgery (including informed consent), and cancer treatment. He started clinical negligence cases (then medical negligence) in the early 1980s. In 1985 he was instructed by the Health Authority to act for them at the Inquiry into the outbreak of Legionnaires Disease at Stafford District General Hospital. The workload changed with the alterations to Legal Aid and reorganisations within the Health Service, but he continues to maintain a keen interest in this field of work. His cases include being instructed by the claimant in claim for over m in respect of a failure to administer antibiotics prior to surgery, and for the defendant in a more substantial claim in which it was alleged a Psychiatrist failed to diagnose a risk of suicide. Giles has represented both claimants and defendants.

Giles has been involved in many large value claims including claimants who have been severely disabled after spinal surgery.
