Dr Mala Sidebottom

Associate

Area of Expertise

  • Clinical negligence

I joined Moore Blatch in 2015 and am a dual qualified solicitor and medical doctor working in the clinical negligence department.  Prior to joining Moore Blatch, I practised clinical negligence at Leigh Day for over 10 years.

I successfully recover substantial amounts of compensation for people who have suffered injury as a result of medical negligence and also represent clients at inquests where family members have died due to substandard medical care.

Typically I represent clients who have suffered a broad range of medical injuries, including brain and spinal injuries, infectious diseases, ENT, surgical and orthopaedic injury.

I have a particular interest in, and specialist knowledge of urology claims and birth injury claims, including cerebral palsy.

Before training as a solicitor, I  was a qualified medical doctor and practised as an anaesthetist.  I have regularly been invited to speak to medical and legal students on issues that affect their professions.
