Woodfines give help in all areas, whether small or large problems.

Recently, we have helped clients with the following accident claims:

  • Hannah Johnson recently settled a claim against a local Highways authority after her client tripped on an uneven area of poorly maintained land, suffering a fractured wrist and a serious eye injury. Hannah visited the client at her home to take instructions and inspect the area, and then liaised successfully with instructed medical experts to obtain the reports required to prove the nature and extent of injury sustained. Settlement with the authority’s insurer then swiftly followed. The client said “Hannah was first class”.

  • Hannah Johnson acted for a pedestrian who suffered a broken arm when hit by a van. A satisfactory settlement was obtained. When asked about Woodfines’ main strengths as a Law Firm, the client reported “Helping someone like me with no clue through the legal process. Hannah set realistic targets and did everything she said she would. She made everything clear and easy to understand”.
