Partner and Solicitor

Stuart Bramley

“Whether advising clients in a legal claim for compensation or representing them at an inquest, I strive to explain all the issues they need to be aware of from the very outset. Many people who contact Tozers’ medical team have suffered significantly and need sympathy and understanding as well as clear, comprehensive legal advice and I aim to provide that face to face, no matter where in the country they may live.”

Stuart is a clinical negligence and inquest solicitor; a Partner; and co-Head of the Medical Negligence Team. He advises clients on the merits of pursuing medical claims against hospitals, GPs and private practitioners in their individual cases.

Using his breadth of knowledge gained over 25 years’ of experience, Stuart is focused on helping injured clients obtain not just compensation but answers and changes. Stuart makes time to get to know each client and their specific situation ensuring he is able to support them towards their desired objectives. For many this will be the award of damages to help fund any care, equipment and input necessitated by the harm they have suffered. Also, many of his clients want to ensure that improvements are effected as a result of what happened to them, so that others don’t have to go through the same experience.

Stuart is well positioned to support on both counts. Qualifying in 1992, he is accredited onto the Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel; listed as a Notable Practitioner by both of the legal directories Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500 for many years; and Stuart is also on the Inquest Panel of the Royal British Legion.

Chambers and Partners 2020 recognised how Stuart “impresses clients with his “very perspicacious and insightful” approach. He earns praise from a source for his ability to “explain things in a very clear and concise way, enabling us to make informed decisions every step of the way.”

In the UK Legal 500 2019, Stuart is described by clients as ‘highly experienced in the field of medical negligence’ and ‘a fantastic communicator’. With one client describing him as “Absolutely fantastic. He is a great communicator, he takes the worry out of the waiting and his calm manner puts everyone at ease. I could not imagine anyone doing a better job and he really has our best interests at heart.”

Stuart has lengthy experience in a number of specialist areas including; birth claims, particularly those leading to Erb’s palsy, brain injury or autism; instances of missed cancers; infections particularly Group B Strep and sepsis; and cases where the error has led not to injury but to the patient’s death.

Working with one of the most experienced and dedicated teams of medical negligence lawyers in the country. Stuart also liaises with other clinical negligence firms, including through the campaign group SCIL; with very specialist Counsel and medical experts; and with charities and pressure groups such as the Erb’s Palsy Group; AIMS; and Group B Strep Support.

Having worked for the first 15 years of his career as a solicitor for the NHS, defending medical negligence claims rather than bringing them, Stuart possesses a valuable insight into how the opponent thinks and acts.

Testimonials

“My son suffered from GBS sepsis and has been left with lifelong disabilities, it was such a traumatic time. I spoke to Stuart Bramley at Tozers, he was absolutely fantastic - he is incredibly knowledgeable and the most genuine sincere person I have spoken to about this. I couldn't find anyone who knew so much about the condition as him, he was very patient and so keen to help, it was a great relief to have spoken to him and I would urge anyone who has issues with their care or feels things could possibly have been different to give him a call.”
