Nicola Evans

Solicitor - Clinical Negligence, Hull

ne@hudgellsolicitors.co.uk

Areas of specialism:

All areas of clinical negligence, with a particular interest in misdiagnosis, obstetric, gynaecological and birth injury claims. I also act for personal representatives and/or dependants where there is allegation of unnecessary death as a result of negligent care.

Expertise and key strengths

Communication. I like to think my clients feel they have been listened to and that I understand their concerns and complaints about their care.

My objective in each and every case is to ensure I obtain the optimum settlement for my clients to compensate them for their ongoing needs and financial losses.

As a result, I enjoy calculating quantum and putting together detailed schedules of loss, outlining the financial losses suffered by my clients as a result of the negligence caused.

I also handle claims relating to fatal accidents. These claims involve a different level of client care as a result of the unexpected loss of a loved one and some involve a level of human rights law, attendance at coroner inquests and consideration of dependency claims and bereavement awards.

My career

I started working in law from the age of 16. I worked in office administration initially, then secretarial, before taking on a fee earning paralegal role in 2004.

I started working within clinical negligence in 2008. I obtained my LLB (Hons) law degree via the Open University before studying the LPC at the College of Law in York.

I obtained my part-time qualifications whilst working full time within my previous law firm.

I qualified in December 2011 before joining Hudgell Solicitors in January 2012.

Since working at Hudgell Solicitors, I have developed my skills by managing my own case load of very varied and complex clinical negligence claims.

Proudest professional achievement

I have had many experiences which have shaped me as a qualified solicitor. However, since working at Hudgell Solicitors, my proudest achievement has to be the large settlement of a claim on behalf of a family of seven children who lost their young mother as a result of a failure to diagnose and treat cancer.

The cancer could have been identified when she was delivering her last child.

She died around her daughter’s first birthday. This case was fraught with difficulties and two previous firms had rejected it before I took the claim on.

Managing my client’s expectations was a key part of my role, as the case involved very complex quantification of damages and difficult negotiations with the defendant’s representatives.

To settle a claim and achieve a level of damages which you know will make a huge difference to the life of such young children, who have suffered the worst possible loss imaginable, provides a huge amount of personal satisfaction.
