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, whereby she is praised for her “industrious and intelligent approach” and being referred to as having “profound insight into clinical matters and the spectacular results she achieves”. 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.
