First Scots clinical negligence specialist and assessor accredited
Ann Logan, a partner at Balfour+Manson, has been accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) as the first clinical negligence specialist and assessor in Scotland.
Ms Logan, a certified senior litigator with over 20 years litigation experience, will assess applicants who apply to obtain the clinical negligence specialist accreditation in Scotland.
For the last sixteen years, she has concentrated on medical negligence cases against hospitals, primary care providers, dental and other health professionals as part of her varied caseload.
She said she was “delighted” to have won the accreditation.
Her extensive experience in high value catastrophic injury claims has included work on birth trauma cases and secure substantial compensation for clients in cerebral palsy and brain injury cases, the most recent of which settled out of court at £4 million.
Ms Logan said: “I am delighted to receive this recognition from APIL.
“Clinical negligence cases often bring many challenges and it is important that clients are provided with specialist advice and have confidence in their adviser.
“I look forward to others joining me in this accreditation scheme.”
David Short, head of litigation at Balfour+Manson, added: “I am delighted to see Ann assume the role of the first clinical negligence and assessor in Scotland.
“The accreditation is a just recognition of her ability and experience in the field.”
