Abigail Frudd

Associate Solicitor

Service Area



For someone to want to bring a clinical negligence claim, it often means they’ve been through traumatic and emotional circumstances.

I see my role as helping them find out what happened and why, and to ensure they are appropriately compensated for the future.

Get to Know Abigail

Abigail is a senior solicitor, who has worked in clinical negligence since 2007. She has a particular interest in cases involving delayed diagnosis of cancer, still birth, surgical errors and fatalities due to negligence.

Abigail takes care getting to know and understand her clients and their families to prioritise their objectives, providing the sensitivity required when dealing with complex circumstances.

Abigail understands that clients often want answers as to what went wrong and assurances that lessons have been learnt by their clinicians.

She investigates all claims thoroughly, ensuring every aspect of an injury is appropriately compensated to the maximum amount.

Career Highlights

I represented a client in his 70’s who suffered a bowel perforation during cancer surgery. In addition to an elongated recovery time, he suffered a permanent colostomy and hernia. The hospital trust admitted that surgery had been performed below a reasonable standard and a six-figure compensation sum was agreed.

Currently I’m working for a number of clients who have suffered adverse consequences as a result of a delay in the diagnosis of cancer. In one case, the delay was due to an administrative error and as a result the claimant died before he should have done. The case was hard fought, but eventually his family were awarded a six-figure damages settlement.

Giving More

As part of Hudgells’ volunteering initiative, I give time to a local charity, Stick ‘n’ Step, which supports children with cerebral palsy and their families.
