Bridge McFarland strengthens clinical negligence team with the appointment of Shaun Rylands

Bridge McFarland strengthens clinical negligence team with the appointment of Shaun Rylands
“ Bridge McFarland’s compassionate and empathetic approach to client problems puts the firm in league with some of the top clinical negligence law firms in the country and I am looking forward to playing an instrumental role in the firm’s on-going success and growth ”

A law firm which is a leader in the Humber region in the field of clinical negligence has strengthened its team with the appointment of a specialist who has more than 30 years’ experience in the region.

Shaun Rylands joins the Bridge McFarland Solicitors clinical negligence department at the start of his 32nd year in the legal profession.

Shaun handles complex and high value clinical negligence claims. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and has a Law Degree from the University Of Sheffield. He is a member of the specialist Clinical Negligence Panel of AvMA (Action Against Medical Accidents) and a member of APIL (the Association Of Personal Injury Lawyers).

Shaun joined the legal profession in 1984 and has previously worked for the Hull firms of Philip Hamer and Co; Gosschalks (for 20 years) and Stamp Jackson and Proctor LLP (for over 12 years).

Over recent years, Shaun has specialised in acting for clients with catastrophic, life-changing injuries, ranging from children who have cerebral palsy and other birth injuries and adults with acquired brain injuries. He has led legal teams in settlements of damages of up to £7 million.

Shaun's focus is not just on the fight for compensation: he also seeks care and rehabilitation for his injured clients and support and understanding for their families. Shaun has expertise in setting up rehabilitation and therapy packages for his clients; purchasing and adapting suitable accommodation for them; and setting up case management and professional care networks for both clients and their families.

Shaun said: “Bridge McFarland’s compassionate and empathetic approach to client problems puts the firm in league with some of the top clinical negligence law firms in the country and I am looking forward to playing an instrumental role in the firm’s ongoing success and growth in Hull, Grimsby and Lincoln.”

At Bridge McFarland, Shaun joins the clinical negligence department headed by Ian Sprakes and will be operating out of offices in Hull, Grimsby and Lincoln.

Ian said: “Shaun’s experience, contacts and skills in handling complex, high value claims makes his appointment an excellent addition to our expanding team and will further add to our reputation in our clinical negligence service offering.

The whole firm is delighted to welcome Shaun to the team.”
