Rachel O'Connor

Expertise and key strengths

I handle a wide variety of medical negligence claims. These include delays in diagnosing orthopaedic injuries such as fractures, delays in diagnosing various cancers plus surgical and dental errors.

I think one of my key strengths is communication. I aim to ensure that my clients fully understand the process of making a claim and that I deal with any queries they may have in a honest and professional manner.

My career

After studying law at university I began working for a local personal injury firm within the personal injury department. I then moved to assisting one of the medical negligence solicitors with a case load of multi-track cases. I later obtained my own case load of medical negligence cases before joining the medical negligence team at Hudgell Solicitors. I have handled a wide range of medical negligence cases over the last five years.

Proudest professional achievement

I consider all settlements achievements but I am particularly proud of settlements which are most difficult to obtain, for example in cases where liability is disputed. I also take pride in bringing closure to claimants, giving them the opportunity to move forward following difficult medical experiences.

Client comments

Hudgells have helped me through a really difficult and upsetting time, thank you so much.

Nothing was too much trouble, really helpful and reassuring.

I had no confidence that I could challenge the NHS but with your help I feel that I have done the best I can to get justice of my mum and that means a lot.
