Expertise and key strengths

I work on a wide range of medical and dental negligence matters covering a broad spectrum of areas. I have a particular interest in delay in diagnosis of cancer claims and also maternal birth injury claims.

I also have an ever increasing case load of nursing and care home matters dealing with treatment of the elderly- these types of cases are often very emotional for the families involved and I always try to ensure a sympathetic ear to all my client’s whilst ensuring they are given the best advice possible on their claims in order to reduce the emotional distress that is often caused by the situation itself.

My clients feel that I provide a no nonsense legal and medical jargon free approach to their cases which I feel is really important as I want my client’s to feel that they are involved and understand the claim at all stages. I understand that it can be very daunting dealing with a claim or even a solicitor and I want my clients to feel totally at ease when dealing with me.

I have experience of litigated and non-litigated matters which means that whatever the track the cases takes, I am able to advise my client’s to the best of my abilities.

My career

I graduated from Northumbria University in 2011 with my LLB Solicitors Exempting degree before gaining my first legal position in early 2012 at a firm in Preston dealing with primarily Professional Negligence matters and working on Group Litigation claims.

I was fortunate enough to work alongside one of the directors who was a very experienced Clinical Negligence solicitor who I recall passing me a file and saying: ‘Read this, and come and talk to me about what you make of this cases in 30 minutes.’ This was my first experience of a Clinical Negligence matter and led me to my current career choice.

Since 2012 I have worked primarily in Clinical Negligence and came to work at Hudgell Solicitors in January 2014- moving back to my native Yorkshire.

I qualified at the firm as a solicitor in September 2016.

Proudest professional achievement

Each case, big or small, when there is a favourable outcome for my client makes me proud to do the job I do.

One case that springs to mind that provided me with great satisfaction was a claim for the estate of a gentleman, who had cancer which would have sadly caused his death at some stage, but he was admitted to hospital and had a fall from bed due to a lack of falls prevention equipment being in place. This caused him to sustain a bleed on the brain which resulted in his death a few hours later. I was instructed to act by his widow who was 91. I obtained compensation for the estate of £20,000 and, whilst nothing could give her back the time she ought to have had with her husband, it meant she and her family could do something to remember him by with no financial worries.
