Fiona Tinsley

Legal Director

0151 600 3078

Fiona is a Legal Director in our litigation team and an experienced medical negligence lawyer.

She holds a Clinical Negligence Accreditation from The Law Society and deals with all aspects of medical negligence relating to delay, misdiagnosis, mismanagement and consent issues, where a patient has become injured, deteriorated or passed away. 

She advises on spinal, brain injuries and strokes, cancer treatment and care, surgical procedures and maternal- and birth-related injuries, including fatalities.

Fiona acts for clients that seek representation to resolve medical disputes against healthcare providers including GPs, NHS Trusts and private hospitals, dentists, pharmacists and care homes.

With a strong background in medical law and analysis of evidence, Fiona has advised in a wide range of complex cases. These include a claimant who lacked capacity in relation to a delay in diagnosis and treatment of a cyst in the brain, which caused cognitive impairment and compromised mobility; a claimant who suffered negligent post-operative treatment and care following kidney transplant surgery; and a mother whose baby was tragically stillborn as a result of negligent delay in treatment and care and also for the father who suffered psychological injury.

Before entering the legal sector Fiona worked in a care setting as a care-giver. This experience gave her immense empathy towards vulnerable individuals — something that she carries with her today. She understands that most clients simply do not want anyone else to suffer as they (or their loved ones) have — and that they want to seek accountability and justice.

Fiona joined us in May 2021 and works across our Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Preston offices.

I’ve found Fiona [Tinsley’s] attention to detail and compassion towards my being and case astonishing, to a level above and beyond what most would present. Fiona finally concluded my case, negotiating a substantial settlement on my (and my wife’s) behalf, helping to secure our future. I view Fiona as such an asset to your business. If ever asked, I would happily recommend Fiona and Brabners in regard to any clinical negligence claim in the future. You could not get a better service.

Firstly, l would like to thank you for your persistence and hard work on behalf myself and the girls. We can now have closure on what happened and at least some admittance was better than none. I just hope it doesn't happen to anyone else... It has been a long and tough road, but you have been caring and very easy to talk to and always had time to answer my questions. I will definitely recommend your services if the need arises in the future to friends and family.

Thank you' is just not enough to express my gratitude. You are a lovely person with a kind heart and you have helped me more than you know. I’m proud to be a part of the NHS and it truly saddened me that I had to consider taking legal action against an industry that I love, but you helped me understand how to channel those feelings in the right way. You have been a part of my life intimately, talking about issues that are very personal… I really can’t say ‘thank you’ enough.

Many thanks again for the fresh and professional you have taken to my claim. It has clearly made the difference that was needed and got things over the line.
