Hudgell Solicitors’ Clinical Negligence department shortlisted for Legal Team of the Year Award

Shortlisted Legal awards Logo


Hudgell Solicitors’ continued rise to prominence in the serious clinical negligence field has been recognised by the firm today being shortlisted in the national Modern Claims Awards.

The firm’s Clinical Negligence claims team has been named as a finalist in the Legal Team of the Year category, meaning it will share the spotlight with leading legal and insurance firms from across the UK.

Working across three offices in London, Hull and Leeds, the team of Clinical Negligence specialists has handled many cases valued at seven figures over the past 12 months, with their work increasingly focused on supporting people who have suffered serious, life-changing or life-limiting injuries.

Settlements for clients in 2014 included a multi-million pound pay-out from a case involving a boy who was starved of oxygen during his delivery, suffering from cerebral palsy as a result.

The firm secured interim damages of more than £1 million for his family to find a suitable house with a very large garden, and also secured access to carers and therapies to help with his speech and language, before the full settlement was agreed and paid.

Ten medical experts were also instructed to provide advice on the make-up of the damages claim, which was crucial in achieving the large final settlement.

The work of solicitor Renu Daly, who is currently handling a number of highly sensitive and high-profile case, also contributed to the firm being shortlisted for the award.

She is currently advising a number of families with children who suffered at the hands of Dr Myles Bradbury, the Cambridgeshire cancer specialist who was jailed for 22 years last December for sexually abusing gravely ill boys in his care, over a four-and-a-half-year period.

In her other work, Miss Daly is also representing a family still trying to come to terms with losing a seemingly fit and healthy husband, father and grandfather to a heart condition, as he had visited hospital two days before he died complaining of serious chest pains, but was wrongly diagnosed with a ‘virus’ and sent home.

Other significant cases saw a settlement of £600,000 reached in a case against a Hospital Trust and for their failure in care for a diabetic patient who had stepped on rusty nail, resulting in him developing an infection and needing to have a below knee amputation.

Compensation of £950,000 was also secured for a patient who was left severely disabled after delays in performing surgery on a spinal abscess, having been sent home from two hospitals run by the same Trust on five separate occasions over a 10 day period. The patient was virtually paraplegic by the time his condition was correctly identified and is now severely disabled.

Solicitor Caroline Murgatroyd sought advice from eight independent medical experts for the claim against the Trust involved, as well as ensuring rehabilitation treatment was secured for the client at one of the UK’s leading rehabilitation clinics.

Managing director Neil Hudgell said being named as finalists was recognition of the firm’s growing reputation for handling cases involving serious clinical negligence and errors.

“We have a superb team of clinical negligence specialists who are playing a key role in helping become increasingly recognised as one of the UK’s leading no win no fee firms, both by clients and, as this shortlisting shows, others in our industry,” he said.
“Importantly, our team is not only establishing a reputation for securing maximum compensation settlements, but also for working in a sympathetic and understanding manner when people are experiencing traumatic and difficult times.
“We pride ourselves on offering much more than legal solutions, and have a network of partners able to give high quality rehabilitation support to our clients, something we make a priority in every case.”

A spokesperson for the Modern Claims Awards, which will held at The Royal Armouries in Leeds on Thursday, April 30, said: “These awards aim to celebrate cross-industry talent and success.

“They will allow industry professionals to come together in celebration of those individuals and businesses who are embracing opportunities in an ever changing landscape.”
