About Hannah Travis
Hannah is an Associate Solicitor in the Complex Injury team. She specialises in medical negligence claims, in particular those relating to women’s health, and she is passionate about securing justice for her clients.
She joined the firm as a newly qualified solicitor in March 2015. She has her own mixed case load of medical negligence cases acting for both adults and children involving claims against GPs, fatal cardiology cases, delays in diagnosis of cancer and surgical errors involving bile duct injuries, loss of hearing and limb amputations.
She has significant experience in cases involving gynaecological treatment and women’s health issues. She has, for example, acted for patients who have suffered from vaginal injuries during child birth, delays in diagnosing gynaecological cancers and surgical errors following prolapse injuries or hysterectomies. She is passionate about helping these women whose lives have been significantly affected by their injuries causing significant pain and distress, ongoing embarrassment and lifelong adaptations needed to their daily routine due to incontinence. She is very approachable speaking to client’s about very personal and intimate health issues and prides herself on being empathetic and understanding.
She acts for families of patients who have died due to medical negligence. She feels strongly about the injustice of such limited compensation being available to bereaved families and the lack of funding for families at inquests and is campaigning to highlight this and fighting to change the law.
Hannah is an active member of Women Lawyers and Mothers, a group designed to support and inspire mothers in the legal industry.
Hannah is connected with the South East Cancer Help Centre in Purley and volunteers, helps with fundraising efforts and attends the centre to meet and speak with members. Hannah is passionate about being able to help those affected by cancer in other ways beyond monetary compensation and the SECHC aims to give any person affected by cancer an opportunity to explore ways which may help them cope with their situation such as counselling sessions, reiki and reflexology, therapy sessions, beauty treatments, nutrition.
