Expertise and key strengths
Understanding how difficult it can be for victims of medical negligence and their families. I know it can often be very difficult to trust someone again when you have been so badly let down. On this basis, I always work hard to give all of my clients the highest level of support, encouraging them to ask questions, even if some may seem silly, as this ensures I can keep them regularly updated and informed. I think this is very important, particularly given that medical negligence cases can take a number of months, or even years, to conclude.
I graduated from the University of Hull in 2007 with a 2:1 in LLB Law with Criminology. I attended The College of Law in York (now the University of Law) to undertake the Legal Practice Course. I worked at a couple of local firms within their family and personal injury departments. I joined Hudgell Solicitors in 2010, qualifying in 2012.
Proudest professional achievement
I am always pleased to reach a favourable outcome for my clients, but one case which springs to mind is of a courageous lady who fought cancer for a number of years. She was admitted to hospital due to an unrelated matter and suffered a fall. She required an operation to repair her fractured hip and contracted sepsis which sadly cost her, her life. It was a difficult case for all involved, and although we recognise that no amount of money can turn back the clock, it was important to her husband that the Trust responsible be held to account for the errors, hopefully ensuring lessons were learned and similar mistakes prevented in future.
