Solicitor, Clinical Negligence

Medical Negligence Care Home Abuse GP Negligence Cancer Misdiagnosis Hospital Negligence

Expertise

Lauren is a clinical negligence claims specialist who deals with a variety of cases including hospital negligence, delayed diagnosis of cancer, surgical errors, misdiagnosis, birth negligence and GP negligence.
She has handled a significant number of cases relating to the neglect and abuse of elderly care home residents and has taken an active role at Hudgell Solicitors in leading our campaigns for improved standards.

Lauren joined Hudgell Solicitors in 2010 and qualified as a solicitor in 2012.

Medical negligence cases are often quite complicated and by their very nature include a lot of legal and medical detail, so I am always very aware of the need to simplify the claims process for victims of medical negligence, and their families and make sure they fully understand what is happening at each stage, and why.
I understand how difficult it can be to take legal action after a traumatic experience, particularly when people have been badly let down by a healthcare professional they thought they could trust.
It is why I always work hard to give my clients the highest level of support, guiding them through the complex claims process to help secure justice for them and their family.

Achieving positive outcomes for clients brings me great satisfaction, and I’m proud that my work often has have such a positive impact on people’s lives.

I have a particular interest in nursing and residential home abuse, neglect and negligence cases, and have been involved in high-profile campaigns at Hudgell Solicitors to improve standards and hold poor performing facilities to account.

Significant cases

Campaigning with one of my clients to help raise awareness of care home abuse, and the impact it can have on vulnerable people, is one of my proudest achievements. It saw us launch our LOVE campaign (Love Our Vulnerable Elderly) campaign, which called for elderly people to always be cared for with love, respect and dignity.

I campaigned on national television for CCTV to be made compulsory in care homes after the family of one of our clients secretly filmed care home staff abusing their elderly relative. This coverage, coupled with a petition calling on the government to introduce legislation on CCTV use in care homes, garnered widespread support and sparked an important debate on the safeguarding of vulnerable elderly people in the care system.
