Expertise and key strengths

I have developed a strong practice in misdiagnosis, with misdiagnosis cases arising out of fatal misdiagnosis in children, cancer patients and missed blood clots and pulmonary embolisms. My sensitivity and tenacity means that I am able to ease the pain of the litigation process for vulnerable and very unwell clients while also achieving significant damages on their behalf.

I also specialise in birth negligence with my case-load including the most serious litigation such as cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy injuries which require years of work to achieve the best possible financial and rehabilitative outcome for the clients. My practice also covers other types of gynaecological injury including a negligent laparoscopy, mistakes arising during after-birth, and errors with fitting of vaginal mesh and the Mirena coil.

My clinical negligence practice covers all other types of negligence including negligent spinal surgery, organ transplant surgery, nursing errors, claims against fertility clinics, plastic surgery, and dentistry.

I have a breadth of experience enabling me to advise with confidence, get the best out of experts and counsel and most importantly, to work tirelessly and patiently with my clients achieving consistently generous financial settlements but with a highly personal, thoughtful and thorough approach to caring for my clients.

My career

I started my post qualification career at Bolt Burdon Kemp specialising in negligence claims against personal injury and clinical negligence solicitors for 5 years. Keen to move to the front-line, I then moved to Riaa Barker Gillette in the West End where I headed their personal injury and clinical negligence department. Being on the door-step of Harley Street, I cultivated strong relationships with local doctors and experts who would refer me unhappy patients and would work closely with me on cases. I worked there for just short of 11 years before moving to Hudgell to build my clinical negligence practice.

Proudest Career Achievement

Negotiating a settlement just short of £500k on a particularly complex injury case involving tricky legal points relating to foreign jurisdiction, applicable law, and calculation of quantum.

Further to an inquest, on a medical negligence claim arising out of the misdiagnosis of a 2 year old child, we achieved a verdict whereby the coroner recommended changes in policy to the referral pathway in A and E for children under 5 in Harrow. I hope this will help in preventing unnecessary deaths in children seeking admission to A and E.

Negotiating a settlement on a case involving the delayed diagnosis of laryngeal cancer where the client survived and she and her husband used their compensation monies to purchase a property in a less urban part of London (which assisted her recovery insofar as her breathing  and speech has been forever compromised so she needed to live somewhere more airy and green) while she recovered from her treatment. Their compensation helped them re-build their lives after months of gruelling and painful treatment.
