By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 20 Apr 2017

BRIDGE McFarland has strengthened its leading position in clinical negligence with the appointment of a specialist with more than 30 years' experience in the region.

Shaun Rylands, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives, is a member of the specialist Clinical Negligence Panel of Action Against Medical Accidents and a member of the Association Of Personal Injury Lawyers.

He joined the legal profession in 1984 and has previously worked for the Hull firms of Philip Hamer and Co; Gosschalks and Stamp Jackson and Proctor LLP.

In recent years he 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.
