Dominique Harley

Senior Paralegal


Dominique is a Serious Injury Lawyer assisting the Head of the Team, Stuart Andrews and Saira Walji, Senior Associate Solicitor with complex and catastrophic injury cases.

She has extensive experience of investigating claims involving treatment provided by NHS Trusts, GPs and other healthcare providers.  Having worked as a lawyer acting for NHS Trusts in her last role before joining Bell Lax, Dominique has valuable experience of how claims against the NHS can be effectively and successfully run.  Fundamental to the useful insights and experience that she has gained is her strong sense of justice, fairness and fighting tenaciously for her clients. 

Dominique has run her own cases and assisted others with claims involving:

  • Amputations
  • Birth injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Hospital / GP / Ambulance / Pharmaceutical Negligence
  • Misdiagnosis 
  • Delay in diagnosis of conditions/ treatment
  • Wrong treatment 
  • Pregnancy issues 
  • Pressure Ulcers (bed sores) / Chemical burns 
  • Surgical errors
  • Miscommunication 
  • Accidents at work 

Since joining Bell Lax, Dominique has assisted on successful claims against the NHS, GPs and other private healthcare providers including cases involving infants who have suffered from Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) resulting in cerebral palsy, psychological injuries, delays in diagnosis and orthopaedic claims.

In addition to clinical negligence work, Dominique also assists Monika Williams a Serious Injury Lawyer, on personal injury claims, which include:

  • Road Traffic Accidents
  • Employers Liability
  • Public Liability

The most rewarding aspect of her role is client satisfaction. Dominique enjoys building new relationships with clients and working closely with them to understand their needs, expectations and navigating them through the process of a legal claim. 

She was inspired to get into clinical negligence law because she wanted to pursue a career where she could use her problem-solving and client care skills to help and support others in seeking a just outcome.

Outside of work Dominique enjoys going to the gym and meditating. She also enjoys travelling and experiencing other countries and cultures. At the weekends Dominique enjoys spending time with family and friends.
