Jane Woodcock

Expertise and key strengths

I have successfully handled many high value claims, particularly in the accident at work field, involving serious, life-changing injuries and fatalities. These include claims involving amputated limbs, reconstructed limbs and claims involving extensive periods of rehabilitation. My key strengths are extensive legal and procedural knowledge, an empathy with clients and a willingness to go the extra mile.

My career

I qualified as Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives in 1985  and was one of the first female lawyers in Hull to enter into the field of personal injury litigation. I have spent the last 16 years of my 31 year career working for Hudgell Solicitors conducting personal injury claims for many hundreds of their clients and before that worked in the same capacity for two other local firms – Hamers Solicitors and Burstalls Solicitors.

I now operate as Head of the Personal Injury Department at Hudgells overseeing the work of a  team of very talented lawyers based at our Head Office in Hull and in conjunction with the Managers of our personal injury departments at our Leeds and London offices strive to provide the best possible service and results for our clients.

Proudest professional achievement

Finalising a claim for 1.7m Euros in March 2014, which centred around a catastrophic injury sustained by a German national whilst working in the UK, and consideration of both English and German law. He lost an arm and a leg in an explosion at an airport and we had to set a precedent in the High Court for the case to be held under English law, enabling us quite rightly to secure a much better final financial package for our client. It has been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Outstanding Case of the Year’ category in the 2014 Personal Injury Awards.

Customer comments

When I first spoke to Jane Woodcock I was immediately put at ease and although it was several weeks before I actually met her she kept me informed at all stages of my claim. When the first offer was made Jane gave me advice and I was happy to go with it. I was surprised to get a second offer so quickly and how quickly it all came to a satisfactory conclusion. I couldn’t have wished for a more pleasant and efficient lady and I would recommend your firm to any of my friends or family.
