June Tron

The legal team at Hudgell Solicitors have become more like a family to us, as they have been there for our family every step of the way. Terry Wilcox and James Camidge have supported us throughout the Public Inquiry, and have looked after us with care and consideration at all times.”

“They have at times protected me when they have known that difficult evidence was to be heard, and helped me cope through some truly horrifying days.”

“They have not just been there for us, they have been there for others too. I can’t speak highly enough of how they work. They truly care about the truth, and about looking out for those they represent.

As survivors we were told by the police that we were mistaken by what we remembered from what had happened, and how people were left without help. I was getting really frustrated with that and it was only when we met Terry Wilcox at Hudgell Solicitors that we found somebody who wanted to listen to us and wanted to get to the truth. He cared about what we had to say.

“We didn’t have a voice until Terry and Hudgells listened. They want to get to the truth.”

“The people who died in that venue, and never had the help they required, have not been able to speak. Those of us there have wanted to speak for them. We know what happened.

The team at Hudgell Solicitors have been so supportive and have talked me through the process, explaining how compensation can cover my future needs and losses. It makes you realise this will impact on you for the rest of your life, no matter how you feel you have moved on.

“I’ve had to accept that I’ll never be the same person again. I can’t be. I don’t think anyone affected can be. If I feel ok, then that’s good enough.

“The physiotherapy support has been brilliant. I have tinnitus and I’ve struggled with my balance ever since the attack. I couldn’t balance on one leg at all but now I can balance for around 20 seconds. It has made my overall balance much better, and that has a big impact on how I feel.

Ruth Murrell

I’d initially paid for therapy sessions privately as I was so far down the waiting list and I simply couldn’t wait any longer. Then Hudgells arranged for more, for which the cost was covered, which was amazing as I still needed so much help, but couldn’t afford it.

“It has helped me with adopting coping techniques to overcome triggers, which can happen every day from something as simple as an ambulance siren or a car backfiring.

I also visited the memorial to lay flowers, which was hugely significant. Being able to work again has been a very positive step too. The support has been fantastic.

It was a fight for us survivors to be given a voice. Hudgells were the people who were prepared to listen to us as humans. There are times when you just need to be able to speak to people who will listen to you, and take time to understand you. Hudgells did that and we are all grateful for their support.”

“We were made to feel like we mattered, and that we were understood. We were able to speak openly with Hudgells.”

“Although we weren’t Core Participants at the Inquiry, we were able to give evidence as witnesses. We hope that families of those who lost loved ones have seen that we have been able to contribute positively to the inquiry and in finding answers.

Since Elizabeth Maliakal took over my case for medical negligence. I am pleased to say her service was outstanding. Her communication was excellent. She was always up to date and made sure to keep in touch with me regularly. Elizabeth made sure I understood what was happening and always answered my questions in depth. Coming from a foreign background, I struggle to articulate my thoughts and feelings because of the language barrier, but Elizabeth worked her way around this. I am grateful for all her hard work. Thank you to Elizabeth Maliakal and Hudgell Solicitors.

Darrel Fuentebaja
Thank you to Hudgell Solicitors particularly Sarah Moore who was assigned to my case. I was kept well informed throughout the whole process via email and phone, and always received a prompt reply to any questions that I had. It took a long time for my case to come to close for various reasons but never during this time did I feel rushed or pressured into making a decision. Sarah was very empathetic and supported me throughout with her excellent level of knowledge and professionalism. Thank you again.
