Adam Smith, Solicitor
I am a Senior Solicitor specialising in Clinical Negligence and have practiced in this exclusively for almost 20 years. I have been a member of Waldrons Clinical Negligence Team since 2008.
Qualifications and Professional Development
I obtained my Law Degree and Post Graduate Legal Practice qualification at the University of Wolverhampton and shortly thereafter began my training to qualify as a Solicitor in 2001. I qualified in 2003 and have specialised in Clinical Negligence ever since.
I have held the Law Society Accreditation for Clinical Negligence since 2013, which is a recognised quality standard for practitioners representing Claimants in clinical negligence cases. This is only held by a small number of firms that can demonstrate expertise and experience in this field of practice.
I have a wealth of experience in dealing with hundreds of Clinical Negligence cases over this time, covering the many areas of medical practice and dealing with cases of all types and complexity. I have experience of dealing with cases of maximum severity, involving cerebral palsy, brain injuries, amputations and, sadly, many fatal cases. I pride myself on working closely with clients and medical experts to try to achieve the best possible outcome. I have been involved in both high value and complex cases, including cases that have proceeded to a contested trial and have had many successful settlements including through mediation and at settlement meetings. I have developed close working relationships with many specialist Clinical Negligence Barrister and medical experts over the years and have close links with a number of organisations such as AVMA (Association Against Medical Accidents), APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) and SCIL (Society of Clinical Injury Lawyers).
I have been involved in a number of high profile cases, which have received local and national media coverage on Television, Radio and in print.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing guitar, reading, cinema and spending time with my family.
