Solicitor, Clinical Negligence
Michelle has expertise in supporting clients in seeking damages for patients who have suffered injuries as a result of substandard care, having joined Hudgell Solicitors in 2016.
She has handled cases involving care homes, GP surgeries, hospitals, dentists and private cosmetic clinics. She has experience in cases involving fatalities, inquests and pressure sores.
I appreciate that making a compensation claim can sometimes seem daunting and therefore our role is to provide complete support from making an initial enquiry to handling settlement offers.
I take pride in building a strong professional relationship with my clients. My proudest achievements are when I receive positive customer satisfaction questionnaires, especially knowing that my clients are not only happy with the service that I have provided, but also willing to recommended me to others.
Every case is significant to our clients and their families.
I have been instructed in a number of cases where substandard treatment contributed to patients sadly passing away.
I have secured damages for a client who fractured their wrist at nine years of age and required surgery. As a result of the wrist not being supported with a splint or plaster cast, their wrist became deformed. It was found that the wrist was still fractured and had set, meaning that they required further surgery to re-break the wrist and re-set it in the correct position.
