Expertise and key strengths

I deal with cases ranging from serious orthopaedic injuries to clients with severe brain injury. Serious injury cases can take several years to come to a close. In particular, I have a clear understanding of the issues which affect brain injury clients and their families, which is important in often life-changing circumstances. I’m keen to implement holistic and comprehensive rehabilitation packages and secure interim payments to assist my clients at the earliest available opportunity. I maintain a positive attitude in what can be a quite challenge and stressful environment for the client, which I feel is very important.

My career

I initially trained and became an Associate Solicitor at Harris Cartwright Solicitors and have also spent almost 4 years in the neurotrauma department at Irwin Mitchell in their London office.

More recently following relocation to Yorkshire I was employed by Minster Law as a Solicitor in their catastrophic injures department before joining Hudgell Solicitors as Senior Solicitor in Leeds.

Proudest professional achievement

Acting for a motorcyclist who sustained a brain injury following a road traffic accident and securing £750,000 in damages. My client could not recollect the circumstances around the collision and was initially blamed for the accident by the other parties involved as well as the police officer attending the scene of the accident. The case went to court on the issue of liability and was subsequently settled at mediation just prior to being heard in the Court of Appeal. This was a life-changing settlement for my client who had been wrongly held totally to blame throughout the case.

More recently Hudgell solicitors being highly commended at the 2016 Rehabilitation First Awards in London, where we have been providing support for a family left shattered by the deaths of a mum-of-three and her six-year-old daughter. The accident also saw a 15-month-old baby boy suffer a serious brain injury, and his father was left having to raise both the baby and his four-year-old brother alone. The claim has seen a decade of support provided to the family, and it is still ongoing today. It has been a really rewarding case to be involved in, supporting a lovely family to rebuild their lives after such difficult, traumatic times.

Customer comments

The support we have had from Hudgell Solicitors and Samuel McFadyen has been fantastic, we couldn’t have coped without it. If we’ve needed any support at any stage, I’ve been able to call and the support has been provided, from care and counselling to a bit of financial help. – Barrie Steeley
