Elin Davies joined Hugh James in 2007 and completed her training contract with the firm before qualifying into the clinical negligence department in 2009.

Elin has gained an extensive knowledge having dealt with a variety of medical negligence claims, including orthopaedic injuries, obstetric and gynaecological claims, ophthalmic negligence particularly in respect of cataract surgery, drug errors and misdiagnosis claims. Elin has pursued successful claims against nursing homes in respect of failings in the care of the elderly where they have sustained pressure sores and injuries as a result of falls or neglect.  She also has vast experience in representing minors who have experienced a range of injuries as a result of negligent care.

Elin has secured six figure settlements for many of her clients, she is however equally as passionate when pursuing  both high and low value claims.

Elin strives to deliver empathetic and straightforward advice in what are often traumatic and sensitive cases.

Elin is a fluent Welsh speaker and is happy to advise and draft documents bilingually.

“You have been there for me and listened sympathetically, professionally and with empathy and understanding… you have always made me feel as though I was not just another case number which was essential to my recovery and for which I give you my most sincere thanks”.

“I would like to take the time to thank you for dealing with my case very professionally and with great kindness. You treated me with such care and were always available when I needed to speak to you. You kept me informed at all times and advised me about anything I needed to know. I understand that this is your job but you made me feel like I was your only client (very special). You won the case for me and I am very happy with the outcome. I would recommend your (solicitors) to anybody but especially to ask for you…’”

“I would like to commend Ms Elin Davies for being so efficient, pleasant and kind. It seemed to me that no stone was left unturned in pursuit of the ultimate objective and although the process was sometimes trying for me, I always had the feeling that the case was in good hands. My experience of Hugh James has been very positive. My own solicitor has retired recently and I shall probably put my legal affairs in the hands of Hugh James and I shall recommend you to anyone who may be interested”.

“Thank you very much for your assistance in dealing with my claim both promptly and professionally”

“Just to say thank you so much for listening, being there and understanding. You have been wonderful Elin”

“Elin Davies, who handles our case, was superb”

“I would like to say the professionalism of your solicitor, Miss Elin Davies, is outstanding. She kept me in touch throughout my case and I cannot thank her enough”
