Expertise and key strengths
As a Litigation Executive, I have handled a variety of personal injury cases including road traffic accidents, accidents at work and public and occupier liability cases. Whilst I am friendly and approachable and provide my clients with straight forward advice I like to be procedurally aggressive with my opponents to maximise damages available to my clients.
With almost 20 years’ experience of handling cases involving road traffic accidents I am able to quickly and accurately assess the prospects of a successful case. I also have experience of dealing with claims against the Motor Insurers Bureau, acting for motorcyclists and cyclists and especially in cases where allegations of fraud or low velocity have been made.
In December 1999 I became a fee earner and started handling my own PI files from road traffic accidents at Irwin Mitchell Solicitors. I moved to Minster Law in January 2005 and handled a high volume of Personal Injury (PI) cases including Road Traffic Accidents and at that time was also responsible for mentoring 3 assistants prior to them moving in to Fee Earning roles themselves.
I left Minster Law December 2009 to move to Manchester and continued my legal career with Leech & Co, handling a variety of PI and credit hire claims from road traffic accidents. I also dealt with cases involving fraud and low velocity arguments, handling a high volume of litigated files to maximise client’s damages. The firm closed in May 2014 at which point I moved to Hudgell Solicitors to further my career.
Proudest professional achievement
I aim to go above and beyond to ensure that my clients get the best result for their claim. One case in particular stands out for me where I achieved a £50,000 settlement which I recovered for a client.
I am extremely proud of all of my successful cases.
I needed to use a solicitor I had never heard of HUDGELL SOLICITORS at the time but thought I would take a chance and am glad I did I highly recommend them and Andy, if ever the need arises I would not hesitate.
