Areas of specialism
I am joint head of clinical negligence and deal with all areas of medical negligence and dental negligence claims. I also sit on the management team.
Expertise and key strengths
I have successfully dealt with a large number of cases involving damage to the gall bladder during surgery. I deal with clients in a no-nonsense approach to resolve their cases as quickly and efficiently as possible. It’s my job to make sure our team are trained in techniques to help ensure the client feels comfortable to share their experience and confident with the service we can provide.
I have worked for Hudgell Solicitors since 2007. I previously worked for Hamers, Heptonstalls, Beaumont Partnership, Raleys and Rapid Solicitors.
Proudest professional achievement
One of the most important cases I was successfully involved in was having a surgeon suspended from practice after a catalogue of errors at Scarborough Hospital. This surgeon left one of my clients needing a permanent Tracheostomy to enable her to speak and breathe. The client received a substantial five-figure payout.
