Kelly Charlton

Kelly is a Senior Associate in the Clinical Negligence Department. She has exclusively practised in Claimant Clinical Negligence work since qualifying as a Solicitor in 2014.

Kelly is based in Manchester and works closely with the Partners in the department dealing primarily with complex and high value work including child and adult brain injury cases, spinal injury, and amputation claims.

Some of Kelly’s work highlights include being part of the legal team which secured over £23 million of compensation on behalf of a child who suffered Cerebral Palsy following birth injury, as well as a case which secured a large £2.2 million interim payment allowing the purchase and adaptation of a long-term property for the Claimant in an adult brain injury claim.

Kelly says her favourite part of being a Solicitor is the feeling of accomplishment she gets from using the law to benefit someone’s life.
