Sonia is completing a major comparative project on personal injury compensation schemes (jointly authored with Naomi Creutzfeldt, Christopher Hodges and others), which can be viewed as the ADR equivalent for personal injuries. They plan to publish a book in late 2015, and have been discussing plans for a new system with government.

Sonia will be expanding the work done by Dr Sweta Chakraborty, to include 40 case studies on major liability cases involving medicines and medical device injuries in Europe, to determine whether the safety signal came from litigation, medical professionals, or the pharmacovigilance system, has continued. Sonia is also working on case studies on the PiP silicone breast implant and metal-on-metal hip implants.
