Caroline Moore, Solicitor/Director
I qualified as a Solicitor in 1991 and have specialised in medical cases for the past 18 years.
I feel privileged that in my first medical negligence case, I recovered a large award (£1M) for a 19 year old man, who suffers from cerebral palsy. I take no pleasure in holding the NHS to account when medical care is not adequate; there are clearly far more patients that leave hospital happy with their care, than those who are unhappy.
However, for unhappy patients, I take my role in helping them very seriously. If they feel they have been let down by one profession, then I wish them to be happy with their service from the legal profession. I prefer them to feel relaxed with me on board. Seeing a solicitor can make a lot of people feel nervous and that’s a shame. If you see me, I won’t be in a suit; I will be casual smart and asking you to put the kettle on!
I am happy to see clients at our offices, but I do like to see clients in the comfort of their own home. A lot of clients are poorly and would find it difficult to travel to our office anyway. My clients are people, not a file number.
In her spare time, Caroline enjoys spending time with her kids, but also springboard and platform diving. She reached competition level in October 2015. The diving is a psychological, as well as physical challenge, away from the challenges of litigation, but she is no Tom Daley!
