Kirsty Yates

Expertise and Key Strengths

I handle a wide array of medical negligence claims, including pressure sores, mistakes made in surgery, delays in diagnosis, and dental negligence. I try to explain the dealings of the claim in simple terms, cutting out the legal jargon and making it a little easier for an everyday person to digest. I also handle cases where the person who was harmed has sadly passed away, so the circumstances are very delicate. In these cases, I try to be as sympathetic as I can and hopefully take some pressure off the family during what is already a difficult time.

My Career

After graduating, I began working at another local firm in 2013 as a case handler dealing with lower value claims. I then assisted on Multi-Track cases (higher value), until I obtained a case load of a mixture of lower and higher value claims. I then moved over to Hudgell Solicitors, and have dealt with a variety of cases over the last four and a half years.

Proudest Professional Achievement

Any settlement is always an achievement, regardless of the figure it settles for. I think the best part is helping an individual or family draw a line under something which has caused them a lot of distress. While no amount of money will ever make up for the pain they have suffered, helping them to move on while providing them with the further treatment they need does bring some satisfaction. Making a claim can be a little daunting, especially if you do not know anything about how the legal system works, so for my clients to have a successful case at the end of it is always a highlight.

Client Feedback

“When I turned to Hudgell Solicitors, it was the same month my mum passed away and I wanted to take it further to get my point across about how she was treated. I wanted them to be held to account. Kirsty did that superbly and was always there when needed.” — Client Feedback
