Alicia Cannon

Alicia graduated from the University of Hertfordshire with a degree in Law and went on to study her LPC at The University of Law Moorgate.

Prior to obtaining her position at Pattinson & Brewer, Alicia gained in-depth and extensive experience in Clinical Negligence at another leading Claimant firm.

She assists the departments partners and senior fee earners with the management of their complex and high value cases.

When clients instruct clinical negligence solicitors, they are seeking confirmation that it is not just them who thinks that their medical experience should have gone better. Such experiences are traumatic and can range from the purely emotional (having fully recovered) to the life-long (cerebral palsy).

Alicia feels that the work and charitable contributions she actively pursues assists clients in rebuilding their lives and puts them in touch with groups of people who have had similar experiences which can facilitate their recovery. This is of the utmost importance to Alicia and is something she looks to achieve with every case she is involved with.

Alicia has maintained a keen interest in the challenges facing Claimant firms as well as the healthcare profession as a whole and regularly blogs on topical issues on the Pattinson and Brewer website and Linkedin.

Alicia regularly volunteers with the firm’s charity events and has attended a number of fundraisers, charity walks and events within the local community raising awareness for brain and spinal cord injury with Headway and the SIA. Alicia also enjoys the theatre and volunteering at the Bedford friendship club for the elderly which is very close to her heart.

A study of 300,000 heart attack patients, led by the University of Leeds, has found rapid increase in PPCI treatment which improves a patient’s chances of survival after a major heart attack.
