Hudgell Solicitors acquires all ongoing personal injury cases from established specialists Hinchliffes Solicitors

Hudgell Solicitors have completed the acquisition of all case files from personal injury specialists Hinchliffes Solicitors, the firm has today confirmed.

Hudgell Solicitors have completed the acquisition of all case files from personal injury specialists Hinchliffes Solicitors, the firm has today confirmed.

It comes as Steven Hinchliffe, who has been a qualified solicitor since 1978 and established the Worcestershire-based firm in 1999, was keen to ensure the smooth transfer of all ongoing cases into new hands having taken the decision to retire.

With a track-record of successfully integrating large case files into its operations, Hudgell Solicitors is now approaching its 50th completed deal since establishing its www.webuyanyfiles offer in 2011 for firms looking to exit the personal injury market.

Track record of Hudgell Solicitors in taking over caseloads was key in deal

And Steven Hinchliffe, owner and sole principal of the firm, says it was this track record which was key in approaching Hudgell Solicitors when he decided to close the firm.

“Hudgell Solicitors have an excellent track record not only in personal injury and RTA claims, but also importantly in taking over case files from other firms in recent years and ensuring a smooth and successful transition,” he said.

“It was obviously of paramount importance to us that we found a firm to take on the cases which we knew would provide a first-class service to our clients. We have informed all of our clients of the impending transfer to Hudgells, and they are all happy with it. This reflects on the excellent reputation and track record of that firm.”

The case files transferring over include all kinds of personal injury, but around half are related to injuries to truck drivers, either as part of a road traffic accident or under accident at work claims, as many injuries are suffered when loading and unloading trucks and at their employers’ premises.

“Hudgells’ experience and knowledge of the employer liability sector was also a major influence in me talking to them about our cases. They have the right expertise to ensure our clients have the best possible representation going forward,” added Mr Hinchliffe.

Hudgell Solicitors will adapt a mix of electronic and paper-based files into their ongoing work, something it is prepared for with its highly-efficient processes when taking over files from other firms.

The firm is committed to personally contacting its new clients within 48 hours of their case being transferred, with the situation fully explained to them, and a solicitor will begin work progressing their case within a couple of weeks.

Acquisition of Hinchliffes’ personal injury cases continues Hudgell Solicitors’ growth

Managing director Neil Hudgell said: “The acquisition of this ongoing caseload from Hinchliffes Solicitors sits very well with our work in personal injury and in particular our growing representation of those injured in road traffic accidents and when at work.

“We are delighted that Steven saw us as a ‘go to firm’ when considering the best place to transfer his clients to, knowing our track record of ensuring a seamless process for both selling firm and its clients.

“Our dedication to ensuring the complete satisfaction of new clients in situations like this, alongside the many we are already representing, is core to the success of the business as we continue to grow in our long-standing areas of expertise such as personal injury and medical negligence, and in new niche areas of work.”

Mr Hinchliffe added: “It is the right time now for me to step away from what has been a very enjoyable career representing those who have been injured and helping them towards recovery.”

“The firm has been successful and profitable, but given the changes ahead in the industry it becomes ever more difficult to manage personal injury caseloads, but this is something Hudgell Solicitors, given their national coverage and size, can do well.”
