"Why do I like my job? The fascination of medicine and the amazing way that no two cases are ever the same. Although I cannot give someone back their health or their loved one, I can help make their lives better through care and therapy or through the knowledge that the mistake that affected them is unlikely to be repeated now it has been exposed. I help give my clients a voice they may have felt would go unheard, and I get them answers they may not have had without bringing a claim. Peace of mind is just as valuable as any amount of compensation and should not be underestimated."
