Recent medical negligence claims dealt with by Emily include:

- Fatal claim involving delayed diagnosis of Angiosarcoma on behalf of the patient's wife, after her husband suffered an untimely death.
- Negligent prescription of Morphine to a patient who suffered from Dementia, resulting in opiate toxicity.

Emily was patient, friendly and compassionate to the distress of my situation. Emily provided me with professional and honest advice and I would strongly recommend the Co-op legal team following my interaction with Emily.
All the staff at Co-op including yourself have been beyond amazing - supportive, informed, empathic and... it's helped. It's really truly helped. Truly, thanks to you all.
