Tim Found

...I do wish to pay particular tribute to Mr Found's skill in advancing the defendant's case. He has certainly made it difficult for me decide this matter as was his duty. Although, at the end of the day, I am against him, I wish to record that he argued his case with particular care and skill.

Clinical Negligence

Tim acts predominantly for Defendants in clinical negligence matters. He has particular experience in colorectal cases (tears resulting from childbirth, failure of anastomosis after laparoscopic bowel resection, haemorrhoidectomy). In the last twelve months, he has been instructed in cases involving:

  • complications following childbirth,
  • TIA,
  • emboli,
  • hip replacement,
  • hip dysplasia,
  • knee surgery and
  • other orthopaedic matters.

He is familiar with claims alleging delayed / missed diagnoses, toxicity of medication, the consent process, negligent treatment and / or surgery. His litigation experience also includes but is not limited to claims arising from general practice, dentistry, midwifery, health visiting and nursing.

Tim regularly appears before the Queen’s Bench Masters and the High Court. He is as comfortable in conference with experts as he is delving into the detail in thousands of pages of medical records.
