Sally’s expertise

Named one of the recommended and leading medical negligence compensation lawyers in New South Wales for 4 years in a row.

Sally currently heads up Turner Freeman’s medical negligence section focusing on catastrophic claims and cosmetic surgery malpractice. Sally has a particular sub-specialty in brain injury claims and assisting families in circumstances where their loved ones have been affected by an acquired brain injury in a medical setting.

Medical negligence litigation is some of the most difficult and complex personal injury litigation and requires a person determined to fight hard for their client. Sally is that person.

Sally has close to 20 years experience in medical negligence cases. She has developed a high level of expertise in her chosen area of the law and has experienced considerable success on behalf of her clients. She has a strong commitment and particular expertise in representing people who have suffered major and catastrophic injuries that will affect them for the remainder of their lives.

  • Whilst Sally is based at our Sydney office she represents clients nationally. Sally can see clients in any Turner Freeman offices by appointment.

A medical negligence expert

Sally is regularly requested to speak on particular areas of law within the medical negligence area by groups of doctors and other health care professionals. This is in obvious recognition of her specialist skills in the area.

Sally is retained by Synapse, a national organisation that assists those with an acquired brain injury and their affiliated entity, Brain Injury Association of NSW. Brain injury at all levels is significant and life changing. Particular personal and legal skills are required in order to assist brain injured litigants as the work involved is much more than just legal work but goes essentially to improving services and quality of life available to people who have suffered brain injury.

Sally has a close working relationship with specialist medical experts. Such relationships are essential when conducting medical negligence and catastrophic injury litigation.
