Expertise

Michelle has expertise in supporting clients in seeking damages through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), having joined Hudgell Solicitors in 2017. She has handled cases involving violent crime and domestic violence, as well as helping people who have experience mental injuries as a result of the attacks or abuse they have suffered. She has also successfully represented many clients who have suffered as a result of sexual violence. Michelle has, in a number of cases, secured damages for clients in cases where the attackers, for a variety of reasons, have not been convicted of offences, or are no longer alive.Michelle is now currently completing her training contract with Hudgell Solicitors.

I appreciate that making a compensation claim can sometimes seem daunting and therefore our role is to provide complete support from making an initial enquiry to handling settlement offers. I take pride in building a strong professional relationship with my clients. My proudest achievements are when I receive positive customer satisfaction questionnaires, especially knowing that my clients are not only happy with the service that I have provided, but also willing to recommended me to others.

Significant Cases

I secured damages for an elderly woman who suffered a fractured pelvis when she was robbed of her handbag at a bus stop, despite her attacker not being convicted of the offence. Police believed they knew the person responsible from her description, but she was unable to confidently identify him from pictures given to her whilst she was still in hospital. The matter of her being a victim of the attack was not disputed though and I successfully applied to the CICA on her behalf and settled the case within seven months.

I also secured damages for a teenage girl who was groomed by her Thai boxing instructor. Again in this case the accused was never convicted, as he killed himself just two days after being arrested. It was alleged he had groomed the girl over a 22-month period. The case was a good example of how the CICA can still bring justice in cases such as this. There was enough evidence for it to grant the award.
