Becky is a senior solicitor specialising in Clinical Negligence; she joined the Price Slater Gawne team in 2014 and is a member of the Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel. She is highly regarded by clients, counsel and experts alike and has been noted as having “a supreme understanding of clinical negligence based on her experience”.

She manages a complex caseload of high-value, serious Clinical Negligence cases including Cerebral Palsy, birth injuries, amputations, delayed diagnoses and fatal cases. She frequently assists claimants with delays in diagnosis leading to blindness, as well as mental health negligence claims. Among her many recent successes is a case involving a failure to treat a fracture of the tibia which eventually lead to a through-the-knee amputation. The seven-figure settlement she secured has funded a bespoke property for her client and will meet that client’s therapy and care needs for life.

Becky is much sought after for her expertise in both physical and psychological injury claims and has successfully represented clients who have sustained such injuries independently and combined. She frequently achieves six and seven figure settlements for clients and works closely with them to put rehabilitative provisions in place as early as possible.

An acknowledged Clinical Negligence expert, Becky works with the team as a mentor and leader, utilising her depth and breadth of experience and expertise to provide case guidance and supervision.

Kind words

“The service from everyone at PSG was excellent but in particular Becky Jacobs was excellent. The professionalism, expertise and advice we received was excellent. We were kept informed throughout and everything was explained clearly. We were treated with understanding and empathy at all times. We would have no hesitation in recommending the services of PSG to anyone needing expertise in a medical negligence claim”.
Mrs H

“PSG handled the clinical negligence case for our daughter with care, compassion and professionalism at all times.

They kept us well informed, translated the medical jargon into lay mans terms so we understood what was happening with the case and managed it through to a successful conclusion.

I’d recommend PSG to any family in the same situation for the above reasons in what can be a very difficult emotional rollercoaster of a journey; PSG will look after you.”
Ms E

“The solicitors dealt with my claim in a professional way. I was asked in a sensitive way about my experience and they approached the claim in a sensitive manner. My claim was resolved with the help of Becky and I even got a letter of apology from the hospital trust.”

“Everything was explained very clearly and everyone as friendly and kind to me. I do not think you could improve … just keep doing what you are already doing”
