Expertise and key strengths
My expertise includes claims involving GP failure to refer patients to specialists, delays in diagnosis of cancer, failure to diagnose or mismanagement of fractures, neglect in nursing homes and avoidable periodontal disease. My strengths are in providing a personal touch. I take special care to get to know each client so I can support them through what is often a distressing and emotional time, and ensure each and every client receives the highest level of client care.
I studied law at the University of Northumbria in Newcastle and qualified as a solicitor in 2007. I joined the Clinical Negligence Department at Hudgell Solicitors in 2014.
Proudest professional achievement
Every case I work on makes me proud but a particular achievement was successfully concluding a claim for a woman who had her tooth negligently extracted and developed a hole in her mouth, which needed surgical closure. The case was robustly defended but settled without the need for her to attend a court trial.
Tasmin White from Hudgell Solicitiors took my case on when many firms would not, she relentlessly pursued the case and always kept me informed of everything that was happening. She informed me throughout the case about exactly what legal steps had to be taken and what forms had to be filled and within what time limits we had to do things in. She never gave up on my case and i can not thank her enough for all the hard work she put into it, I would certainly use her again if needed and would be more than happy to recommend her and Hudgell Solicitors to anyone.
Hudgell Solicitors have been really good and I would recommend Tasmin to anybody. She came down to see me and was very clear with everything she said and did throughout the case. If I didn’t understand anything, she explained it, and in the end the hospital has been held to account for what happened.
