Most recently in May 2017 Maggie gave expert evidence in JR v Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust  EWHC 1245 (QB) (25 May 2017) in what is believed to be the largest ever compensation award for a man who was left with Cerebral Palsy as a result of negligence during his birth. She is acknowledged by the Judiciary as a leading care expert:
