Alex Tengroth

In brief

I am a specialist Medical Negligence Solicitor and have represented clients and families in the County Court, the High Court, the Court of Appeal, and at Inquests.

In the past

I read law at Keele and the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in London.

I then trained at Harman & Harman Solicitors in Canterbury and qualified as a solicitor in December 2004.

After moving to national law firm Shoosmiths, where I handled a wide range of complex and high value medical negligence and personal injury cases, I returned to Canterbury in February 2008 to work at Fairweathers Solicitors LLP with a number of former colleagues.

In Work

My caseload encompasses the broad range of medical negligence matters, although I have a particular interest in cancer, surgical and orthopaedic claims.

My reported cases include:-
S v Kent & Medway NHS Social Care and Partnership Trust (2009) in which the claimant suffered from an ovarian tumour which went undiagnosed for two years, requiring extensive surgery and the loss of her ovary; and B v K (2011) in which the claimant died following a delay by her GP of six months in diagnosing her breast cancer.

In my spare time

I am an avid (and largely frustrated) golfer, and can often be seen struggling my way round a golf course in Kent at the weekend! I also enjoy travelling, particularly European city-breaks.
