Blackpool based birth injuries specialist Diane Rostron has been ranked in the 2020 Legal 500 directory which recognises the top lawyers in the UK.

Ranked amongst large national medical negligence law firms with offices in the North West, Legal 500 describes Rostron as the ‘powerhouse behind a small team’ recognising her commitment and compassion towards clients.

A testimonial published in the annual directory said: “Diane Rostron’s dedicated support and personal commitment to clients, and their families, makes her stand out from others in the field. She is the most committed and compassionate of solicitors that I have come across in dealings with in excess of 50 UK and worldwide law firms.”

Commenting on her Tier 3 ranking, birth injuries lawyer Diane Rostron said: “Our dedication and focus for the past 20 plus years has been on clients first but we are delighted to be recognised amongst a number of specialist large firms for the service we deliver.

“Medical negligence, and birth injuries particularly, leave families in incredibly traumatic and challenging circumstances. The significant, and preventable, harm suffered lasts a lifetime. Our job of course is to secure the £multi-million settlements needed by these families in order to cover the extensive, and relentless costs of carers, therapy, equipment and other needs as a result of the injury sustained.

“These cases are complex, and we work tirelessly to not only secure justice for our families, but to support them through what can be a lengthy and difficult legal process. We get to know each and every client well in order to get a full picture of their individual circumstances and needs. Our support also continues long after a settlement is secured.

“To be recognised by barristers, other lawyers, medical experts and clients as amongst the best in the country, competing against much larger teams, is a fantastic accolade.”

Diane Rostron and her team secured £27 million in 2018 for a seven-year-old Blackpool boy left brain damaged following a birth injury.
