Maryam Abdullah

Solicitor – Clinical Negligence

Maryam graduated with a Law degree from the University of Leicester before qualifying as a solicitor specialising in Clinical Negligence in 2014. She joined our Lime Clinical & Medical Negligence team in February 2015.

Specialisms

Maryam pursues claims solely on behalf of Claimants who have suffered as a result of clinical negligence by hospitals, GPs, pharmacists, and other members of the health profession. She has also been involved in claims against care homes.

Maryam is appreciated by her clients for her empathetic and sensitive attitude. She is friendly, approachable, and professional at all times. She ensures that her clients are kept regularly informed throughout the duration of their claims and prides herself on delivering very high client care standards.

Maryam has a variety of cases including those relating to ophthalmology, orthopaedics, amputations, ENT, gynaecology, renal transplant surgery, cardiology, dental treatment, and also fatal accident claims.

She has a particular interest in cases involving ophthalmic issues and she recently attended a specialist AVMA course to broaden her knowledge within this area.

Notable Cases

Maryam has settled a number of challenging cases ranging from relatively low value claims to more complex higher value ones.

  • Recently, Maryam settled a claim involving a lady who passed away as a result of a delay in diagnosis and treatment of hyperkalemia. A failure by hospital doctors to respond to elevated potassium levels led to her suffering a cardiac arrest. Further failures by the hospital relating to emergency care sadly resulted in her death. An admission of liability was obtained before the case was settled to the satisfaction of our client.

Interests

Outside of work, Maryam’s passions lie with travelling, cookery and the theatre. She is also a keen walker and has completed numerous charity walks over the years in support of a variety of excellent causes.
