Areas of specialism
Road traffic accidents, accidents claims arising from trips and slips and claims which arise against hairdressers and beauty therapists.
Expertise and key strengths
Bringing an injury claim can be an extremely daunting process, not only for the claimant but also their families. One of my key strengths is my ability to build a relationship with the client and put their mind at rest that they are in good hands. Over the years I have had and continue to receive personal recommendations from clients I have previously represented. I pride myself in getting the best possible result for my clients.
I joined Hudgell Solicitors in 1998. Prior to this, I worked at two other law firms in Hull.
Proudest professional achievement
In my 17 years with the firm I have successfully secured millions of pounds in compensation for claimants. One case involved a number of passengers on a bus who were injured when the driver lost control and veered off the carriageway, colliding with other road users in the process.
The bus driver convinced a Magistrates Court that he had developed a medical condition which caused him to fall asleep at the wheel and criminal charges were dismissed.
Consequently his employer’s insurance company firmly denied any responsibility for this accident. Court action was necessary in respect of the personal injury claims. Many hours were spent interviewing witnesses and scrutinising CCTV footage, following which I was successful in securing compensation for each of the claimants.
