    Client review

  • Nick Leahy has been my Solicitor throughout this journey and has been absolutely amazing; kind, approachable and extremely supportive... Through some dogged determination by Nick we achieved our goal without having to go to trial. I cannot thank Nick, Stephanie and all of the team at Osbornes highly enough for achieving a very favourable settlement, the outcome of which will make a huge difference to myself and my family.

Nick’s notable cases

Nick has recently obtained the following settlements on behalf of his clients:

  • A five figure settlement in a complex gynaecological case in which our client underwent unnecessary surgery following an incorrect diagnosis. Our client suffered a serious nerve injury and a recurrence of her gynaecological symptoms. Court proceedings were issued and the Defendant denied liability however settlement was reached prior to witness evidence being exchanged.
  •  A five figure settlement in a wrongful birth case against an abortion provider, after our client missed the legal cut off date for an abortion despite presenting to the Defendant for this service at 8 weeks’ gestation. Our client recovered damages for the serious psychological injuries she suffered as a result. Court proceedings were issued following a firm denial of liability from the Defendant however a successful settlement was reached after a period of negotiation with the Defendant.
  •  £75,000 for a client who suffered a serious and permanent injury to her superficial peroneal nerve during surgery. Our client required complex treatment including a residential pain management programme. The Defendant denied liability however the case was settled at a Joint Settlement Meeting between the parties prior to court proceedings being issued.
  •  £60,000 on behalf of the Estate of a person who died following the negligent failure to make a referral to the gastroenterology department for the treatment of his gallstones. The Deceased presented to A&E 10 months later with sudden onset of abdominal pain. He was thought to have acute pancreatitis and was commenced on antibiotics however his condition then rapidly deteriorated and he passed away the following day after a cardiac arrest.
