We’re always committed to getting the optimum outcome for you.

Hudgell Solicitors took my case on and my expectations were exceeded. All persons at Hudgell are professional and courteous. My claim was one against Norfolk Police. Without going into details, the Police had clearly been in the wrong and were in process of accusing me of exactly what they had actually done to me and a further cover up of the truth. Hudgell took my instructions and were in contact with me during the whole process and brought about a very satisfactory outcome. To be clear...Satisfactory is a very good outcome. I would recommend Hudgell without question. I feel I have been treated respectfully and my case notes were engrained into those at Hudgell that helped me get a conclusion to the most heinous acts from the Norfolk Police.

My brother was the victim of quite a bad motorcycle accident where he was not at fault. Sadly he only held third party cover so whilst he was in hospital I was asked by him to find a solicitor to claim against the third party. After doing some research I chose Hudgell to help us (even tho Neil Hudgell is the owner of the dreaded Hull KR and I am a massive FC fan). INITIAL CONTACT I made contact by phone and this was a simple conversation. The member of staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. All the questions I had were dealt with and I was very happy with the outcome of the call. FOLLOWING INITAL CONTACT. Within half an hour of contacting Hudgell’s a senior manager made contact with me and discussed what would happen next. Again this was very personal and really helpful. After another half an hour Sam (my brother’s now solicitor) called me. We chatted about what had happened and what he was planning to do initially. Sam was really friendly and understanding. He put me at ease right away and explained everything clearly and directly answering all questions I had. Within a week of the claim being opened Sam and Laura (Chartered Legal Executive) visited my brother in hospital. They helped put him at ease immediately and talked through what would happen, what their objectives were and also but more importantly made my brother understand that they would do everything to help him in any way he needed. After this meeting in the hospital we were happy that this claim was in safe hands. Sam the Solicitor A very friendly chap who shoots from the hip and tells you a spade is a spade. A chap who doesn’t make promises he can’t keep. A really likable man who you would want to have a pint with and we did not always look at him as the solicitor. He kept us updated at all stages and was always contactable. I did have one heated conversation with Sam BUT this was a good thing. I say this because he is very passionate about his job sometimes when a third person (me) is acting on behalf of the victim (my brother) it can be a little hard at times to please everyone. He took all we threw at him and directed us really well. Sam thank you for all your hard work, your support and the outcome. Laura Chartered Legal Executive What can I say about Laura, an absolute gem this lady is. Professional, very committed to her job, compassionate, More than helpful, caring and really cared in my opinion about my brother and his recovery. Every contact we had with Laura was amazing. She is one of those people who puts you at ease right away. Laura dealt with every problem with put at her feet, every question we had she dealt with and if she could not answer there and then she would find the answers we needed. If we had a problem she would find a solution. Again always contactable and if she could not respond immediately to a call she would call back within the business day. Laura thank you for all your hard work, Thank you for being there when we were dealing with all the problems we had. Both Sam and yourself are a credit to your company and your profession. The service provided by Hudgell’s far exceeded what we expected. If you need the services Hudgell provides then I would highly recommend your choice of solicitors is this company.

I was represented/instructed by Mobeena Salim, who was always available when i wanted to discuss my case, which was reassuring and comforting. We were able to pressure the defendants who eventually agreed to settle and this meant we did not have the drawn out court process! Overall, i am happy with the service, only criticism is that i feel we could have settled a higher amonut if we continued negotiations. Would use this firm again! Thanks for everything.

I am sorry but the person's name that dealt with me who was admin was Natasha - my name is definitely not Natalie but obviously it shows how much attention you pay to people's particulars and case details. So sorry not interested in your services - as previously mentioned when it comes to medical negligence, you are impersonal, inefficient and inaccurate. Also the comment went on TP on the 22nd March and you provided yet another generic response on the 2nd April.

FAQs

FAQs

Will the country where my employer is based affect my claim?

While the country where your employer is based may affect how we approach and pursue your claim, it may not have any impact on your ability to bring a claim or the compensation amount you’re entitled to.

For accidents that occur in England and Wales, you normally have three years from the date of the accident to bring a compensation claim against your employer.

However, this will not be the case if your accident took place outside of England and Wales where English law does not apply. Some countries have much shorter time periods, some as short as 6-12 months from the date of the accident.

Our solicitors can advise on the process of making an accident at work abroad claim. We work with a network of lawyers and foreign experts in countries throughout the world, so you can expect professional legal representation regardless of the circumstances of your accident or where it happened.

How much compensation can I expect to receive?

If we accept your case, our injury abroad litigation specialists will work closely with you to establish the circumstances of your workplace accident and the resulting injuries you have suffered. This will help us to calculate an appropriate amount of compensation that reflects your injuries and losses.

In calculating a fair compensation sum, we’ll assess the following:

  • The severity of your physical injuries — corroborated by an independent medical expert.
  • Psychological trauma you’ve suffered after the accident.
  • Your loss of earnings through taking time off work following the accident.
  • Your ongoing care and medical support requirements.
  • Mobility aids and home improvements you now require as a result of your injuries.
  • Other financial losses you’ve incurred in the wake of the accident, including overseas medical expenses and travel costs.

We will help to secure the maximum amount of compensation for the injuries and losses you’ve suffered and, where necessary, work with experienced foreign law experts to bring a strong case against those responsible for your accident.
