About Jodi Newton
I am a Senior Solicitor in the clinical negligence department of the London office at Hudgell Solicitors and have been qualified for over 18 years, predominantly in running claimant clinical negligence cases.
I specialise in child brain injury, in particular cases involving cerebral palsy patients and I am dedicated to handling these claims with sensitivity, conscientiously but effectively as well, so as to secure the best personal and financial results for these particularly vulnerable clients. My firm is at the forefront of the drive for engaging in rehabilitation. I share those principles and take a rehabilitation orientated approach so that my clients access the very best therapies as well as being supported in their legal claims.
I am dedicated to supporting the families of my brain injury clients providing them with a particularly personal and empathetic service.
My work also covers a breadth of other clinical negligence cases including Erb’s Palsy cases, wrongful birth, avoidable amputation, avoidable loss of vision, failure to diagnose sepsis, misdiagnosis of cancer, surgical negligence, transplants, cosmetic surgery, and hip replacement negligence.
I have appeared on the BBC in 2018 commenting on an inquest. My case involving negligent organ transplant surgery was featured in November 2019 on both broadcast and online media, including Sky, BBC, Channel 5 and ITV. I regularly comment on developments in clinical negligence law having prepared and been quoted in several articles.
In the latest edition of the Legal 500, I am recommended for being a “stand-out solicitor” with a “huge track record of successful clinical negligence work. She is forensic in her attention to detail, but also sees the broad sweep of strategic considerations”.
