Expertise and key strengths

I have acted for a number of clients who have suffered very serious, life-changing injuries. I have also represented families at Inquests.

Clinical negligence claims are inherently complex in nature and can take several years to reach a conclusion. It is important to understand a client’s objectives, which may not always be for financial redress, but who may also want to understand why something has happened to them or a loved one, and how this can be avoided in future. Providing clear, thoughtful advice, so my client understands the process and the evidential issues we need to address is paramount.

My career

I joined Hudgell Solicitors in 2010 and I was later promoted to the position of Clinical Negligence Team Supervisor in our Leeds office

Proudest professional achievement: I acted for a man who attended hospital on a number of occasions, complaining of worsening back pain only to be repeatedly sent home with a diagnosis of muscular pain. Finally, he was admitted and diagnosed with a spinal abscess. By that time, he was virtually paraplegic.

As a result of the delayed diagnosis, he was left significantly disabled and was unable to return to work and suffered severe pain on daily basis. It was a very complex case and we asked a number of experts for their expertise on the case before obtaining a settlement for the client of £950,000.

To achieve this settlement was an excellent result for the client and very satisfying as a solicitor. You get to know your clients very well and it’s very satisfying to see a case settled in their favour, allowing them to move on with their lives.

I have secured significant damages for a number of clients including the following:

  • A client blinded as a result of negligent eye surgery
  • A man who suffered a serious hypoxic brain injury as a result of failures to diagnose cardiac disease prior to his suffering a cardiac arrest
  • An overdose of Gentamicin resulting in damage to renal function
  • Failure to treat an infected knee replacement resulting in an above knee amputation

In 2016 I was shortlisted in the ‘Rising Star’ category at the Yorkshire Legal Awards.
