Clinical Negligence & Catastrophic Injury Solicitors
Aimee Costello is a solicitor specialising in clinical negligence whose dedication, empathy and technical expertise are really appreciated by her clients as she guides them through the claims process.
Aimee is very experienced in supporting individuals facing a wide range of often complex and very sensitive situations, including
- birth injuries and obstetric claims,
- surgical errors,
- delays in diagnosis of cancer
- failures in Accident and Emergency,
- GP misdiagnoses and related issues,
- fatalities arising from medical negligence.
The profoundly serious nature of such cases means that the compensation Aimee rightfully secures to provide sometimes lifelong support can be significant; examples include a £1m settlement for an obstetric injury, a multi-million pound settlement relating to a very serious birth injury, £0.5m for delay in diagnosing a cruciate ligament injury and £0.25m for errors in performing bunion surgery resulting in permanent disfigurement and disability.
Aimee has specialised in clinical negligence for over ten years and has previously practised in specialist legal firms both in Yorkshire and in the South Midlands.
Married to professional jockey, Dougie Costello, Aimee takes a close personal interest in horseracing and is a long term supporter of the Injured Jockeys Fund and other initiatives that provide practical support and rehabilitation. She has a good understanding of injuries obtained as a result of equestrian pursuits and also the professional and financial implications of injuries to professional athletes who have also suffered from clinical negligence.
