Expertise

Simon has been part of the Hudgell Solicitors team since 2007 and has played an influential role in a number of departments in that time, including Clinical Negligence and Civil Liberties. The main focus of Simon’s work is medical negligence claims and he specialises in providing inquest representation to the families of those who have died as a result of medical mistakes. He is able to provide advice on the Inquest process and also to represent families at the inquest itself.  Simon has successfully dealt with a large number of cases involving bile duct injury during gallbladder surgery, orthopaedic claims and injuries suffered to residents of care homes.

I am passionate about the role we play both in ensuring those who suffer as a result of negligence are fully compensated for their loss and supported towards their recovery, but also in ensuring vital lessons are made when health professionals get things wrong. I adopt a no-nonsense approach on behalf of my clients as I know that having already suffered in some way, they look to me to resolve their cases as quickly and efficiently as possible. It is our job to make sure our clients feel comfortable to share their experience and feel confident that we will fully investigate their cases and ensure people are held to account.

Significant Cases

One of the most important cases I was involved in was when a client of mine was left needing a permanent Tracheostomy to enable her to speak and breathe after errors made by a surgeon. My client received a substantial damages payout and the surgeon was suspended from practice, such was the significance and impact of his errors.

I also secured damages on behalf of the family of an 89-year-old woman who was physically and verbally abused by staff at a care home. Family members secretly filmed staff subjecting her to neglect and abuse over a five day period. Our firm subsequently went on to campaign for CCTV cameras in care homes soon after.
