Penny Horne is the head of the Clinical Negligence team. She is a Grade A Solicitor who has over 10 years experience.
Penny specialises in Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury. She has a vast experience in dealing with high value and complex claims and has been recognised in the most recent Legal 500, being referred to as a “very industrious and intelligent”. She is also a member of the Norfolk & Norwich Law Society and participates in NCLS (Norfolk Community Law Service) where she provides Clients with free advice.
Penny’s successful claims of note include a very difficult Clinical Negligence claim in which the Hospital failed to undertake adequate tests to ensure the Claimant was not suffering from a superbug before prescribing her with medication. The failure to test the Claimant led to her having an unnecessary emergency operation and ultimately a colostomy bag. The Defendant denied causation arguing that a breach would not have prevented the Claimant from having emergency surgery. The Claimant was, however, delighted when a substantial settlement figure was reached out of Court.
