Partner Manchester Clinical Negligence
Steven Brown is a partner in the medical negligence department at JMW and has specialised in the field since qualifying as a solicitor in 2008, which is when he also joined JMW.
He is ranked in the 2019 edition of the Legal 500 as a Next Generation Lawyer and is described as a ‘highly committed and proactive claimant lawyer’.
Steven's caseload is primarily made up of spinal injury and adult and child brain injury claims. In 2020 he settled a cerebral palsy case on behalf of a boy who suffered severe brain damage at birth due to a failed induction of labour for £13 million. The compensation will help the boy to have access to the specialist care and accommodation he requires and will also provide financial security. Steven is currently working to settle numerous other multi-million-pound cerebral palsy claims for children whose birth was mismanaged.
In April 2019 Steven obtained £1 million in compensation for an adult patient left severely debilitated by negligent treatment of spinal injury cauda equina syndrome. A previous cauda equina case he managed settled for £1.5 million and he has also previously secured £1 million for a man left with a permanent brain injury due to a delay in diagnosis of a stroke.
Hailing from Gateshead, Steven completed a Law Degree at Manchester University and the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at the College of Law, Chester.
Steven has featured in the national press after helping a client whose husband was affected by horrendous pressure sores to raise awareness of the issue (The Mirror) and also featured in the Daily Mail covering birth injuries.
Steven is a member of the training group for the British Association of Brain Injury and Complex Case Management (BABICM) and a former committee member of the Manchester Young Solicitors group, Steven has spent time working in a pro bono legal advice centre in Manchester advising members of the community on a range of issues.
