Hayley joined Hodge Jones & Allen as a Trainee Solicitor in September 2018. She is currently in her second seat, assisting Partner Dawn Treloar in the Medical Negligence Department, where she is working on a variety of claims including birth injuries, negligently performed surgeries and cases of missed diagnosis.
Hayley spent her first six months in the Personal Injury Department, assisting Peter Todd, Partner. There she worked on a range of civil litigation including a major multi-party action relating to the Pandemrix® H1N1 swine flu vaccine where the 90 claimants all have narcolepsy, and a multi-party product liability claim against ophthalmic retailers, Oculentis BV, Oculentis GmbH and others relating to injury and loss caused by defective intraocular lenses. Hayley also assisted with several judicial reviews relating to treatment provided to patients with rare conditions including Cystic Fibrosis and Phenylketonuria (PKU), and her involvement with various challenges on behalf of patients with PKU is ongoing.
Hayley has developed a pro bono practice representing disabled clients, in particular those with rare conditions, at the Social Security and Child Support Appeals Tribunal challenging refusals to award Personal Independence Payments (PIP).
Prior to joining Hodge Jones & Allen Hayley had experience in civil litigation, criminal justice and human rights law. Between January and September of 2018 Hayley was a Legal Fellow at International Justice Mission, the world’s largest anti-slavery charity, at their Field Office in Manila, the Philippines. There she worked on the criminal prosecutions of perpetrators of sexual abuse (specifically cybersex trafficking of children), and provided legal assistance during rescue operations of child trafficking victims.
Before this Hayley worked as a Paralegal for 18 months in the Personal Injury Department at another claimant law firm, where she worked on complex high-value brain and spinal injury cases. She also assisted with assessing quantum for a group claim against Corin Cormet regarding defective metal-on-metal hip devices.
Hayley has a particular interest in human rights and access to justice. In 2015 Hayley spent six months as an intern at the human rights charity Reprieve, where she worked on a resentencing project based in Malawi involving prisoners who had previously been facing the death penalty. She has also volunteered in Kampala with the Uganda Christian Lawyers’ Fraternity, working on cases of unlawful detention. Hayley campaigns about the importance of human rights law in the U.K by writing for RightsInfo, an award-winning human rights website founded by barrister Adam Wagner of Doughty Street Chambers, and sits on the Law Society’s Human Rights Committee as the Junior Lawyers’ Division Observer.
