Areas of specialism
My area of expertise covers accidents at work, occupiers’ liability, public liability, product liability, road traffic accident claims and criminal injury compensation.
Expertise and key strengths
I have dealt with fatal accident cases, following serious road traffic accidents and accidents at work, ensuring dependants are properly provided for. I have also dealt with cases involving catastrophic injuries, including losses of limbs and serious head injuries, ensuring that, in addition to compensation, the client is provided with the appropriate rehabilitation and support for the future. This also includes any home adaptions.
I have been with Hudgell Solicitors since May 2010. I obtained a degree in Law at the University of Hull before going on to complete the Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice at the College of Law in York.
I am an accredited member of APIL. I previously worked for Bailey & Haigh Solicitors in Goole before joining Hudgell Solicitors in 2010.
Proudest professional achievement
I acted for the wife and daughter of a young man killed after being crushed by a skip whilst at work. I have also been proud to act for a seven-year-year old girl who, when she was five, fell from the top of an unsafe slide in a playground and landed on concrete flooring, a case which led to a review of all safety at playgrounds across the specific town. That particular case also led to me being featured in The Law Gazette as “Lawyer in the News”, such was the interest in the case.
Moving from being a fee earner towards management was also a proud moment.
