Are Yorkshire people missing out on compensation for genuine injuries?

By Sean Gordon, Senior Solicitor, Neil Hudgell Solicitors

NEWLY published research has suggested people in the Yorkshire and Humberside region are the most reluctant in the UK to claim compensation for genuine personal injuries – due to a fear of contributing to the so-called ‘compensation culture’.

The report, carried out on behalf of the solicitors’ network, QualitySolicitors, suggests many people are being left out of pocket – on average £1,064 – as a result of not claiming compensation to cover extra costs such as medical bills and time not working.

Thomas Cook counting the cost of flight delay

aeroplane in sky


Thomas Cook Airlines will be preparing to count the cost of staff shortages and sickness when their lack of crew delayed a number of flights on Sunday 31 May 2014.

The 06.00 flight from Bristol to Ibiza and the 06.45 to Mallorca were left on the tarmac with customers waiting at check in with only a clock to watch as their holidays ticked away. 11 hours passed without moving a muscle from the airport, before they were taken to a hotel overnight, although the bus forgot to bring them back the next day… they finally took off at 18.30; over 24 hours late.

Meanwhile, a similar story unfolded in Palma and Ibiza for those holidaymakers coming home.

Whilst everyone appreciates that extraordinary things can happen and the best laid plans go awry; staff sickness should not be one of them. There are provisions under EC Regulation 261 of 2004 for compensation of set amounts of between €250 and €600 per person, regardless of how much your flight cost you.  The amount you receive depends on how far your journey is and how long you are delayed.

Some personal injury solicitors might start charging but not Neil Hudgell Solicitors

Simon Wilson at Hudgell Solicitors


…we’re continuing to guarantee a quality, no win no fee service to clients.

There’s a lot of change going on in the legal profession at the moment.  New laws,  part of the so-called Jackson Reforms, affect how much of their costs a client can claim back from the other side and, consequently, whether or not a client can expect to keep all damages recovered on their behalf.

Most law firms are now looking at making a claimant pay them a percentage of any damages won to cover legal services and fees.

Claiming compensation for personal injury or medical negligence? The 5 essential questions you need to ask your lawyer

By Sean Gordon, Senior Solicitor, Neil Hudgell Solicitors

Recent changes in the law* have affected the way that compensation claims operate for personal injury and medical negligence claims, particularly for those up to £25,000.

The changes mainly affect how much of their costs a client can claim back from the other side and, consequently, whether or not a client can expect to keep 100% of any damages recovered on their behalf.

Instead of keeping 100% of any damages won, a claimant may have to pay a percentage to their lawyer.  To avoid this and to ensure there are no deductions from any compensation, and you keep 100% of any damages you win, there are five essential questions to ask a lawyer before you agree to let him or her handle your claim.

Fighting for the rights of the underdog?

Listen to any debate about law in general, or the English legal system in particular, and it probably won’t be too long before you hear it said that the system of justice in this country is perceived to be “the envy of the world”.  Those who have suffered injustice (perceived or real) at it’s hands will no doubt seek to disagree, but in the age of 24 hour instant news coverage from around the world, we increasingly get the chance to see how the legal systems in other countries  compare to ours,  and to note that the checks and balances which we take so much for granted from those who oversee our society, are often conspicuous by their absence elsewhere.
