Legal claim for blindness set to bring about real change in NHS service delivery
I am a partner in the firm’s medical negligence team, helping clients with complex claims resulting from substandard healthcare and medical practices.
As a medical negligence specialist, my clients are those who have sustained orthopaedic, gynaecological, obstetric or brain injuries, often with life changing or catastrophic results. I also have a particular interest in handling cases of cauda equina syndrome. My clients are often concerned initially about the complexity of the claims process, so I make sure I guide them through the legal maze and give them the clarity they need to feel reassured and confident.
I am approachable and open with my clients and take the time to get to know them and understand their concerns. I know that the legal process can be daunting, so I make it a priority to put clients at ease and let them know that they are in the best possible hands.
Having been recommended by a friend who works in the area of clinical negligence in another part of the country, Maya and her fantastic team of experts excelled all of my expectations. Maya’s advice was well informed and easily understood. Always on hand to answer questions. Thank you very much

"7 & 1/2 years ago I underwent a routine operation that went drastically wrong leaving me wheelchair bound & needing care for the rest of my life. I contacted Moore Blatch 5 years ago who put me in contact with Maya Sushila their medical injuries expert. It was the best decision I could have made. Maya has been a close part of my life since that 1st call, she consulted me & my close family on every development of my case. She has supported us when times got extremely difficult & gave me a pep talk when needed. Maya has always been professional & has fought extremely hard every step of the way & ensured I had the best experts & advice to aid my claim. Due to Maya & her team my case has been successful. I cannot thank her enough for ensuring that for the rest of my life I have the means to receive the best care possible. Thank you Maya. Thank you Moore Blatch." Client

Through your professionalism you did not forget that you were working with people and you took into consideration our emotions, even when times and communication were hard. Thank you for being this special person, and helping my daughter son and me having a bright future as a family." Client
