I specialise in clinical negligence and complex personal injury claims on behalf of Claimants injured as the result of accidents or medical negligence.

I undertake a wide variety of high-value, complex clinical negligence work, including birth injury, orthopaedic, delayed diagnosis and treatment of injuries and diseases (including cancer), gynaecological, surgical, vascular, cardiac, ophthalmological, radiological, pharmaceutical, amputation and brain injury cases. I act for both adults and children. I have acted for clients who have been injured by negligent hospitals, doctors, dentists and other healthcare professionals, with a particular interest in cerebral palsy birth injury cases. I have acted on behalf of child Claimants with cerebral palsy in cases worth several million pounds.

I also act for clients who have sustained severe injury as a result of road traffic accidents, accidents at work and other types of accidents. My clients are often suffering from devastating injuries, including head and spinal injuries.

I am a member of the Law Society’s clinical negligence accreditation scheme (since 2007) and of the Law Society’s personal injury accreditation scheme (since 2003). This demonstrates my expertise in these areas. I am also a member of APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) at senior litigator level and in 2012 was also appointed to the AvMA clinical negligence panel.

I am a Recommended Lawyer in the Legal 500 2021 guide which notes: Clare Carter is described by peers as a ‘formidable opponent’, handling the full scope of matters including cerebral palsy, birth injury cases, misdiagnosis, and negligently treated medical conditions.’

Excellent lawyer who ‘gives her all for her clients and leaves no stone unturned and is renowned for her comprehensive grasp on her cases.
