Caroline Godfrey is an Associate Solicitor within the Clinical Negligence Department. She is based within the Eastbourne office and has been with Mayo Wynne Baxter for seven years.
Caroline works on a wide-ranging caseload, consisting of cases arising from misdiagnoses, negligent surgery and fatal injury, amongst others. She also assists senior members of the team with high value clinical negligence cases arising from catastrophic injuries such as cerebral palsy and acquired adult brain injury.
Caroline is particularly interested in undertaking detailed investigations into quantum and working closely with experts to identify a client’s future needs once issues of liability have been resolved. She describes this as the most rewarding part of her role as she enjoys exploring ways in which a client’s quality of life can be improved through rehabilitation, access to correct professional support and the purchase of specialist equipment.
Before joining the firm, Caroline obtained her Law degree from Leicester University in 2005, and then achieved a distinction in her Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in Guildford. She commenced her training with the firm shortly after, and qualified into the Clinical Negligence Department in March 2009. She is also a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL)
Outside of work she enjoys swimming, going to the gym and spending time with her husband and young daughter. Much of her spare time is also taken up with planning for and running a local Brownie group.
I'm sure your success with Jenny's Case will add to Mayo Wynne Baxter's formidable reputation with clinical negligence cases. I will always be grateful to you and so will Jenny, once she's old enough to understand it all.
I would like to thank this company and especially its representatives Mrs Caroline Godfrey and Mrs Melanie Minter for their professionalism and caring attitude in bringing my claim to a satisfactory conclusion.
