Linda Millband - National practice lead for clinical negligence

Medical negligence solicitor - Birmingham

Linda is an extremely experienced medical negligence solicitor based in our Birmingham office and national practice lead for the clinical negligence team. For more than 20 years she has been working for injured people, securing compensation for victims and their families.

Linda has represented clients for a range of high-value medical negligence compensation claims, including birth injuries, such as cerebral palsy cases, and the misdiagnosis of cancer.

Linda knows that the key to securing medical negligence compensation for her clients is being able to demonstrate that sub-standard medical treatment caused her client’s injuries, and that their injury could have been avoided. This requires an in-depth knowledge of medical practices and procedures. Linda has a proven record of winning these types of cases, many of which are high profile and high value claims. This is testament to her sound knowledge of in these areas, and is reflected in the many expressions of gratitude she receives every year.

Linda, who is based in our Birmingham office, is one of several of our solicitors who are members of the Law Society’s Clinical Negligence Panel. Clinical negligence is a highly specialised area of personal injury law, hence the Law Society's individual accreditation scheme for it. No other area of the personal injury legal system has its own specialist accreditation scheme and, given that there are only a small number of members on the Clinical Negligence Panel, the appointments are hard fought and highly sought after.

Linda is also a member of the Law Society Personal Injury Panel, as well as having links with several support organisations, including Headway and SIA.

Linda is a member of APIL (The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers)

Successful medical negligence and asbestos-related compensation claims

Medical negligence compensation claim – Sub-standard medical treatment in hospital


Linda’s client in this medical negligence compensation claim was a young woman who was left a widow with a small child when her husband died within just a few hours of becoming ill. Although he attended hospital and was seen by medical staff, his condition was not recognised as serious until it was too late to administer procedures that could have made the difference between life and death.

The hospital admitted to her client that the care of her husband had been sub-standard and Linda was able to negotiate over a quarter of a million pounds in compensation for the loss of a husband and father. The family were obviously devastated at this tragic waste of life, but the compensation will ensure that the child will not suffer financially from his untimely death.

Medical negligence compensation claim - Failure to diagnose breast cancer

When still only in her 30’s, this client had sought medical advice when she was concerned about a lump in her breast. For over 5 years, Linda’s client was repeatedly advised that there was no cause for concern.

Sadly, when her condition had deteriorated such that she was in constant pain and experiencing difficulty with even the simplest of day-to-day tasks, she underwent a full biopsy and bone scan that confirmed what she had feared all this time. Not only had she had breast cancer for some considerable time, but also it had spread extensively into other areas of her body.

Although she underwent radiotherapy and other treatments, Linda’s client sadly died some months before the successful outcome of her claim for medical negligence compensation, leaving a young family to grow up without her.

Linda had been forced to issue court proceedings in this case of medical negligence against the consultant general surgeon who had seen her client on many occasions over the years. Linda had been able to secure an interim payment during the course of this compensation claim and was then able to negotiate over half a million pounds in medical negligence compensation.

Comments from grateful clients who received compensation

Here are just a couple of the many expressions of gratitude that Linda receives each year.

"always curteous and professional, friendly and helpful."
Victim of medical negligence

"Linda Millband handled the claim very professionally and kept me informed at every stage. I would like to thank her for that."
Husband of cancer patient (deceased)
