I would like to congratulate our Head of Clinical Negligence and Partner at Express Solicitors, Ben Gent, for being listed as a ‘Recommended Lawyer’ in the Legal 500. The publication recommended Ben for demonstrating “skill, thoroughness and efficiency in all areas of clinical negligence”.
Ben has been an asset to the business since he joined at the beginning of 2013 and has worked tirelessly to seek justice for people let down the by the medical profession.
As well as being one of very few North West clinical negligence lawyers to be listed as a ‘Recommended Lawyer’ in the Legal 500, he is also a Law Society clinical negligence accredited specialist and a qualified solicitor advocate. Ben enjoys the challenge of acting in cases which other lawyers have turned down and has recovered damages in excess of £1,000,000 in two cases where clients had previously received advice from other solicitors that there was no claim.
When asked what he enjoys most about his role at Express Solicitors, Ben commented: “I enjoy standing up for the underdog against what is usually a more powerful and wealthier opponent. This is of increasing importance since the government’s changes have made it all the more difficult for ordinary people to force institutions to tell the truth, and hold them accountable when mistakes have been made. The other aspect I enjoy is seeing first-hand the strength in adversity shown by injured people, and friends and families who look after them.”
