I specialise in Clinical Negligence and CICA (Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority) claims which cover:
I joined Gotelee in 1988. In 1997 I qualified as a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives. In 2011 I was appointed as an Associate of the firm. I am a Senior Litigator with APIL and a member of the Law Society personal injury panel. This means that my experience and specialism has been recognised by these bodies. I am also a member of the Ipswich Medico-Legal Society.
I act for claimants in clinical negligence claims against Hospital Trusts, GP’s, Dentists and Opticians. I also act for people who have been injured as a result of cosmetic surgery and beauty treatments.
Amongst many cases in the last year I have recently settled a number of cases against a National Health Trust where there had been a delayed diagnosis of cancer resulting in the patients having to undergo significantly more aggressive treatment and, sadly in 2 cases, where the patient’s life expectancy was very much shortened.
I also successfully settled a claim where my client had been left blind in one eye due to mismanaged treatment for a nerve condition they suffered from.
I also act for victims of violent crime in seeking compensation from the CICA. I act for claimants who have been sexually and physically abused and also for those who have been victims of violent assaults. I have recently settled a number of claims for clients who suffered abuse as children.
Here are some recent testimonials from my clients:
”I wanted to say thank you for all your work on the case, for the sensitivity and care you displayed and for your sound advice” MH, Ipswich
“We first approached Sian Mullane over a compensation claim for my grandson. Right from the start Siân and her colleague Tim Humpage gave us confidence. Siân did most of the work but together they worked energetically and tirelessly on our case. We were kept informed about what was happening all the way through and nothing was too much trouble. Siân was there supporting us every step of the way. She knew all the right professionals to approach to get proper assessments done for my grandson and when we had our day in Court, we were granted one of the highest awards given by the CICA. We cannot thank Siân enough for everything she did for us and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone”. MT, Ipswich
“Just to say thank you for everything you have done for me, it has been like I was working with a friend. Thank you”. SH, Ipswich
In addition to this, my work has been highlighted in the most recent Legal 500 guide, an impartial view on legal service providers: At Gotelee Solicitors, ‘client management is second to none and partners are a pleasure to work with’. ‘Sian Mullane secured over £200,000 for a client with brain cancer from asbestos exposure’.
Outside of work I enjoy gardening and tending to my allotment. I also enjoy cycling and walking. I am also a volunteer for Cinnamon Trust.
If I can help you please send me an email or give me a call. I can offer you a free initial interview and advise you on the best way forward to pursue your claim where possible on a no win no fee basis.
