Rhea joined Hodge Jones & Allen, in December 2017, after training and qualifying at a niche specialist clinical negligence and personal injury practice in central London. She qualified as a solicitor in June 2017. Since then she has gained experience dealing with a variety of complex multi-track and catastrophic injury cases.
Currently her work includes assisting Peter Todd with a multi-party product liability action relating to the Pandemrix H1N1 Swine Flu vaccine. The claimants all have narcolepsy (a serious incurable neurological disorder) after receiving the swine flu vaccination.
Rhea is also assisting with 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. The claimants all had lens replacement surgery but their prosthetic lens has calcified due to contamination in the manufacturing process, resulting in the need for revision surgery or permanent loss of vision.
She has acted for individuals bringing claims in respect of allegedly negligent clinical treatment against NHS Hospital trusts, general practitioners, and private surgeons. Rhea has represented bereaved families at Inquests.
